One of the greatest climbing movies I have seen. (Period)
Wow, this movie is amazing, I saw it in the IMAX theater and was stunned. the graphics blew me away. The fairly well known story, that was depicted in 'Into Thin Air' is brought to new heights (quite literally) and a new understanding of just how dangerous this mountain is. I liked this movie because of the courage shown by the climbers, the have to face challenge after challenge, but they persevere. Also what really grabbed my attention is how the climbers not only document the story, but also their thoughts for you to see. I have seen many climbing movies, but this just blows them all away, taking mountain filmography to never-before-seen perfection. The scenes and the people are amazing, they have inspired me and I hope they will inspire you also. *Fox*
