Movie Info

Kyle and Mike are best friends who share a close bond -- until Mike sleeps with Kyle's fiancée. The Climb is about a tumultuous but enduring relationship between two men across many years of laughter, heartbreak and rage. It is also the story of real-life best friends who turn their profound connection into a rich, humane and frequently uproarious film about the boundaries (or lack thereof) in all close friendships.

Critic Reviews for The Climb

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (1)

  • Toxic masculinity is played for rich and revealing farce in writer/director Michael Angelo Covino's assured feature debut, told over multiple years.

  • Life is an uphill battle says The Climb, a film that gets better as it goes, even if life often does not.

    Sep 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Covino shows truly impressive formal control, incorporating sophisticated camerawork and tightly coiled edits while allowing time, space and rhythm - in short, the foundations of cinema - to play as equal participants in the comedy.

  • What impresses most is that the laughs and bittersweet insights into rollercoaster relationships never flag - and that is what really elevates this comedy to greatness.

    May 20, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • All of this might come across as little more than restless film school showmanship if Covino and Marvin didn't have such appealing onscreen chemistry, and a commitment to the chapter-based approach that basically allows them to get away with anything.

  • A clever comic bromance backed by artful filmmaking.
