It took a blind man for me to see.
18 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How can this true story be anything but excellent? Peter did a great job portraying Erik. It was fantastic to watch and some what humbling.I am very sighted and would never ever climb Mt.Everest.Had I known it was based on a book I would have already read it, now a must read for me.What an inspiration Erik is to the world, blind and seeing.A great movie to watch more than once.I am always amazed at the human spirit and where it can take us.....Beautiful cinematography, not sure how much was Everest, but beautiful all the same. I can only hope all people who watch this movie see something new, something only a blind man could show them. Never let anyone tell you you can't do anything you wan to. Erik didn't seem to have to many limitations,only the ones he put on himself, which weren't enough to stop him.I loved seeing Bruce Campbell as well. He is one of my favorites.
