James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love.
A high-adrenaline tale of young climber Peter Garrett, who must launch a treacherous and extraordinary rescue effort up K2, the world's second highest peak. Confronting both his own limitations and the awesome power of nature's uncontrollable elements, Peter risks his life to save his sister, Annie, and her summit team in a race against time. The team is trapped in an icy grave at 26,000 feet - a death zone above the vertical limit of endurance where the human body cannot survive for long. Every second counts as Peter enlists the help of a crew of fellow climbers, including eccentric, reclusive mountain man Montgomery Wick, to ascend the chilling might of the world's most feared peak to save her.

Montgomery Wick's name is an obvious reference to Thomas Montgomerie and Jim Wickwire. Montgomerie discovered K2, and Jim Wickwire was the first American to climb K2. Wickwire also lost several toes on the mountain, similar to the character Montgomery Wick. See more »
When pulling people out of crevasses, mountaineers are unlikely to just pull the rope with both hands (especially as their hands are freezing cold), since any mistake will result in the victim falling back and sustaining more injuries. (Incidentally, this is what happens in the movie quite frequently and contributes to the suspense). What they would do instead is use their accessory cords and carabiners to create a "mechanical advantage" system, and slowly lift the victim towards the lip of the crevasse in a controlled manner.

You're all the bloody same, aren't you? Born-agains say I don't believe in Jesus, so I'll go to hell. Jews say I do believe in Jesus, I'll go to Hell. Catholics say I don't believe in the pope, I'll go to Hell. So any way you look at it, I'm in the shit.

Dear Lord, what an awful movie! The characters are all the usual clichés. There is a total disregard for science, physics, and common sense. Gee, how can we make this exciting... I know, let's strap Nitro on their backs for some reason! Let's make them click radios instead of talking. Let's take every plot device out of every other action movie and see if we can fit it in! Shucks, you sure we can't have a car chase?
And I hate the Nitro crapola that Hollywood seems to come up with. Yes, if you even sneeze it will explode! How did they get it there to start with then? Who knows. And if anyone thinks ANYONE uses liquid Nitro for ANY purpose, they should research where the funds for the Nobel prizes come from.
What a piece of crap.
