When the lead climber radios the pilot, the pilot says he is at 15,000 feet - well below the rescue climbers and the base camp. See more »

Utterly fun creature feature
29 October 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

After being asked to participate in a rescue mission after a disastrous mountain-climbing incident, a man and his team find the area protected by a group of vicious creatures guarding a secret within the mountain and try to get away before falling victim to the ravenous beings.

This one wasn't too bad and definitely has it's good parts. Among the better elements here is that the action scenes are really enjoyable with all the location scenes up high in the mountains, gives this one a rather sizable sense of action along the way. The opening attack of the camp is immensely fun with the attacks keeping the creatures hidden enough while rampaging through camp as well as they're ranks in a flurry of activity, a later scene of the disaster crash of the creatures taking out the helicopter crashing it against the side of the mountain in front of the attempted rescue-victims as well as the rather exciting descent down into the crevice all come off as really fun action scenes spread out across the mountain. Even more fun is the scenes inside the mountain with a great sequence during a driving snowstorm of the creatures attacking the camp and forcing the team underground where the stalking continues into a series of deep caves, plenty of big pits littered with rocky outcroppings and human skeletons which gives off quite a creepy tone here. Even better, the later scenes in the temple are quite fun as the hive featuring all the baby creature coming after the gang in some really creepy scenes giving this one some great action in the numerous escapes and chases throughout here. Likewise, there's some more to like here as the creatures here are pretty enjoyable creations in terms of looks with it's lizard-like body and alien head creating a distinctive look that are given enough storyline points to care about and are woven nicely into the story as there's some great attempts at explaining their connection to the mythology of the area. As well, the fact that there's a rather enjoyable pace keeps this one moving along rather well which is more than enough at keeping this one up over its few flaws. The flaws, though, all seem to come from the fact that this has too many subplots here, as there's the military intervention which is never given a purpose and put here almost as an afterthought that take kills away from the creature, the cancer scare and the trapped wife and eventual reconciliation that come off as complete clichés while the former is further guilty of also being a complete throwaway that all could've gone away and not messed the film up at all. This one also comes up short here in really selling the secret goal of the original mission since it's never really made clear why they needed to be as secretive as they are to get him on-board with their plans. Overall, though, it's pretty enjoyable.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Adult Language.
