Storyline

In this intense ice-and-snow mountain drama, two climbers temporarily forced together for a rescue mission find themselves as uneasy partners in the adventure of a lifetime. Derrick Williams (Jason George) is a hotshot climber who wants to prove to the world he can do it himself. Teamed up with Christian "Safety-Man" Michael Harris (Ned Vaughn), another stunning professional world-class climber, they are given a fully funded ascent up one of the most deadly mountains in the world; the monstrous Mt. Chicanagua in the Chilean Andes. The battle doesn't begin on the slopes however, it is a test of wills, a question of faith and beliefs that begins immediately and doesn't stop until the stunning conclusion.

Sermon on the mountain ......
9 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Religion is amply glorified in this uninspired climbing film. Everything about it seems more preachy than entertaining, and the opening scene is beyond ridiculous, with safety techniques put aside completely. While the film may send a reassuring religious message, the climbing tale it hangs on is very thin. I give this one point for the presence of the always interesting Dabney Coleman, and zero for entertainment value. Admirers of "Touching the Void" and other mountain climbing films are warned to steer clear of this "sermon on the mountain", unless a religious message movie is what you are looking for. ......... - MERK
