Elba and Winslet are both excellent, and when the saga continues beyond where most other movies would have it end, they provide the glue that holds the increasingly diffuse project together.

Elba and Winslet are magnetic from the start, and do their best to elevate the otherwise tired material.

Brisk action, blossoming romance, and a dog: it may not scream Oscar, but that doesn't mean The Mountain Between Us isn't one of the best movies in theatres right now.

This is a very dopey romantic survival story. Good thing for this movie is I like dopey romantic survival stories.

It's always a pleasure to see Kate and Idris work... There are parts of the movie that are too far-fetched for me.

The Mountain Between Us has a lot of flaws, but there is something to be said for a love story where the parties involved treat each other with decency and respect -- and keep track of the dog.

While both leads bring an element of gravitas to proceedings, it's hardly the high-profile showcase their talents warrant.

The idea of pairing Winslet with Elba certainly is attractive. Being acclaimed actors, you know they can make anything work. They definitely give their all, even though the plot treads on thin ice when it cannot decide which genre it wants to be in.

The chemistry between Idris Elba and Kate Winslet is impeccable... [Full review in Spanish]

In the end, all depends on the appeal of Elba and Winslet and they don't disappoint.

Put the survival details aside and enjoy this trip on a very different Titanic.

I was surprised by the film's shift from adventure story to romantic melodrama, and yet the turn feels natural. Everyday life more often resembles a melodrama than an adventure story.

This is handled capably enough by Dutch/Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, with strong work from Winslet and Elba, even if it tends to feel a bit like a TV movie and offers a coda that might well have been added on after the fact.

If you like romantic stories and are tired of the usual treatment, this film takes a different approach to the subject.

It's a love story first and foremost, doing a better job serving that crowd than most Nicholas Sparks bollocks adapted to screen.

As an adventure, The Mountain Between Us is an ungenerous spectacle, since the sensation of authentic danger shines by its absence in a landscape... [Full review in Spanish]

Survival story that reveals how love and tenderness grow out of the vulnerability of two strangers.

To its credit though, Mountain doesn't end in an obvious place - an extended coda adding more poignancy and emotional depth than what a traditional Hollywood romantic action-drama might have.

Yes, we have been here before, many times, but the talented Kate and Idris make you care about Alex and Ben's plight (it does not hurt that hey have a cool dog with them) and want them safe.

A riveting disaster flick and a steamy bodice ripper rolled into one!
