I thought the adventure film was only passable when it should have been more exciting.

Audience Reviews for The Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas

½

This movie is silly and predictable. An explorer goes up into some mountains somewhere and runs into an abominable snowman. It goes downhill from there, but there are a couple of exciting scenes, though.

An intelligent film, scripted by Nigel Kneale, which postulates that the abominable snowman is a near relative to homo sapiens, biding it's time until we have destroyed ourselves before taking our place. The genuine mountain footage was shot with stand-ins; the actors never left the studio. For the most part the location and studio footage is well matched. This is a much better film than its reputation suggests.
