Intriguing. On-mountain footage spectacular. Case study in how not to work together. Also, an example of how facts become stories (often (de)emphasising a subset of those facts). Strong personalities interesting. The Sherpas sensible, as ever. The complex storytelling easy to follow, if you concentrate. Ger McDonnell a remarkable individual. Recommended.
not terribly exciting but, definitely shows you the harsh reality of extreme climbing
Badly edited feature about people who decide to spend a fortune to climb a mountain notorious for its' high rate of deaths. So half of the movie is about them attempting to get to summit and the other half is them complaining and scratching their heads in disbelief that not all succeeded or survived. The movie should have been called "You can't cure stupid".
Heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. The Summit is a documentary about one of the most beautiful and dangerous places on earth. The events are properly researched and told in a interesting way.
An interesting story and terrible tragedy, but difficult to follow at times.
The subject matter and the people are interesting enough to make this worth watching. The storyline isn't completely coherent, and it's not the best mountain climbing documentary out there.
The K2 literally casts a shadow as the sun sets-- all the way to China. The film itself was confusing, sad, and scary.
In August 2008, K2 mysteriously claimed the lives of eleven climbers and marked one of the deadliest days in mountaineering history. The Summit is a documentary that attempts to unwind all of the stories and find truth behind what actually happened.
The spotlight is set on the very likeable, Ger McDonnell and the unfortunate decisions he faced on that grim day in the death zone. Writer Mark Monroe and Director Nick Ryan do a great job of illustrating the fallibility of humans under stress and in doing so, create the heroes and villains that every great story requires.
Fascinating but rather disjointed.
It's time shifting structure seems unnecessary in what is after all a documentary/docudrama and not a fiction film, but otherwise this is a gripping and desperately sad account of a tragedy on the slopes of one on of the most beautiful places on earth.
