Plot: On the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers (Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin) from two expeditions start their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds.
Aces: The dare devil act of all the principal actors who were part of the expedition to scale the mountainous peaks of the Everest.
Minuses: The slowest pace of the movie gives you a feeling of watching a documentary film.
Last Word: An interesting fare but with very limited footsteps as this may not be enjoyed by the family audiences.
