If you ever have the choice of being trapped, halfway up a mountain, or of watching this movie, than I advise you to don that parka and long underwear.

December 8, 2000
People die in interesting ways. Audience cheers each time. At some critical point, any sense of tension dissipates and the whole exercise becomes a giddy death countdown.

If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the better version.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 1, 2000
Story and character development gets buried in an avalanche of illogical behavior and preposterous catastrophes.

Vertical Limit has no plot -- or, rather, just a semblance of a plot.

The air is thin in Vertical Limit, and so is the plot.

January 1, 2000
Barely two minutes go by in this picture without some kind of glaring nonsense in the script or the action.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
December 7, 2000
Suspense is apparently sustained by keeping the mountaineering info to a mum and making every character a moron.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Isn't so much a man- versus- nature story as it is an idiots- versus- nature story.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Falla debido a la gran cantidad de clichés que utiliza

Climbing Mt. Everest or K2 is a rare accomplishment; so is keeping a straight face through "Vertical Limit."
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

A superficial but entertaining roller coaster ride of nonstop action.

January 1, 2000
The year's most ludicrous action movie.
December 8, 2000
If you lay aside that action and watch the people instead, it's a morass of dimwitted family crises and hack action-movie cliches.
December 8, 2000
Lumbers from lardy exposition to climax overload.

The mountain-rescue movie Vertical Limit doesn't just operate at the height of ludicrousness; it also puts marshmallow Chris O'Donnell in the business of saving lives.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 8, 2000
There's a huge surplus of edge-of-your-seat whatevers in this thin-air thriller about a rescue mission on K2. But by the end, you can't tell who's got more bruises: the actors or your nerves.
December 8, 2000
An overblown and predictable melodrama.
