Trivia

At the behest of the film's writer / director Steven James Creazzo, "The Ascent" was being pushed to shoot in Alaska, June/July 2010. However, the executive producers pushed for Austin, TX in November/December 2009. In the end, the (Austin) locations worked adequately. But pick-ups were then required to open up the film a bit and give it more scale, as far as mountains and such - which would not have been needed if the production had waited and shot in Alaska.

GREAT FILM... "The Ascent"... What a difference the DIRECTOR'S CUT makes...
15 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a difference the DIRECTOR'S CUT makes...

Attended a private screening for this film, of which, I had no idea about, called THE ASCENT. All I knew was that it was an indie-action flick, and my friend, who is in the business, dragged me to this screening... And wow was I blown away.

Really good story. Strong, solid performances, especially the lead actress, JOSIE DAVIS. And the two elements that impressed me the most - the slow-burn and the "real" twist ending.

"THE ASCENT" (director's cut) really has a great intense build up to a great twist ending, that I never anticipated. I was so impressed how the director allowed the film, and the story, evolve at a very natural, and unforced pace.

After the screening, there was a Q&A. And that's when I learned all about the "OTHER VERSION" of the film that was put out briefly by REGENT ENTERTAINMENT... Be aware, if you have seen the REGENT VERSION of "THE ASCENT" then you have not even come close to seeing the REAL VERSION, by the director Steven James Creazzo, of "THE ASCENT."

I hope someone releases that version of "THE ASCENT" someday.
