Critic Reviews for The Himalayas
"The Himalayas" is a broad comedy, a buddy movie, a mountain climbing adventure and a cornball weepie, not always in proportions that go well together.
Director Lee Suk-hoon proves a capable (if uninspired) hand at meeting genre expectations; rest assured that ladders will precariously bridge crevasses, oxygen levels will drop, and grand speeches will be made as our heroes face near-certain death.
All the buddy comedy of The Himalayas produces a release valve for a nation that is steeped in han and desperate to snatch some sort of victory from the jaws of many defeats.
A formulaic glut of schmaltzy clichés and cheap-looking visuals packed into a predictable, witless, braindead script. If someone had pushed the film cans for The Himalayas off a mountain, we'd be all the better for it.
There's a lot of crying and wailing for a movie about hardened adventurers, and it eventually drowns out any potential excitement.
