Whilst crossing a ledge, 4000 feet above the earth, Gabe's friend's equipment fails to work and she slips out of his hand, falling to the ground. Almost a year later, Gabe is asked to go back to the same mountain range and rescue a group of 'stranded' people. The only catch is that these so called 'stranded' people are in fact looking for three boxes filled with $100,000,000 and they need a mountain ranger to lead them to them!! Written by

The stuffed puppy that falls off the cliff in the opening scene was not scripted, but was added at the last minute. Renny Harlin liked the dog so much, he bought it so that the audience would have a clear idea of what would happen, and how horrific the fall was. See more »
This film takes place in Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains. When the villains use night vision, it shows their elevation as somewhere in the 3,000 ft range. However, even the lowest point in the Colorado Rocky Mountains is well above 3,000 feet. See more »
To be honest, I didn't like that much this movie when I saw it for the first time. But I guess the trouble is that I haven't seen it in a theater. Big Mistake ! Because the #1 thing to see in Cliffhanger is the settings and #2 is the cinematography. Try to see this movie on the largest TV possible and a great sound system. The music is good and puts the movie to a higher level (and a commercial potential). The more I see it, the more I like it.
It's definitely one of Renny Harlin's best movie. THis guy knows about action. Die Hard 2, The long kiss good bye, etc. And it's particularly good in this movie. The special effect are great and spectacular. Stallone really needed that movie get back with success. Still good to see him !
