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.

When a Pakistani character is shown praying, the way he was praying was incorrect. He completed some steps in the wrong sequence and too quickly. See more »
How about it Mal? You and Cyril have been up there before.
No. I mean why would we want to leave this place?
Luxurious accomodation. Fine cuisine.
Sultry weather. Frostbite's off my dick.
I reckon we should wait until they chuck in a ski lift.
Good idea. Imagine coming to the Himalayas and actually having to do some climbing. Especially when you have to complete your autobiography.
And rustle up those all important endorsements. You wankers! What's bloody wrong with you?

Usually I do not care very much for mountain climbing films as they usually have a very similar plot. This film had plenty of action with Helicopters flying all over the place and horrible snow storms and also entrapment in caves deep under tons of snow and ice. The film starts out with a father, son and daughter adventuring up a steep mountain during a very sunny day and having a wonderful time with each other. Their father was a very experienced climber and all of a sudden a tragic situation happens and a horrible life or death decision had to be made within seconds. There is lots of scary scenes and plenty of explosions and more action than you can handle.
