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 movie's most breathtaking scenes were shot in the Cortina d'Ampezzo Dolomites mountains. The bridge scene was shot on Monte Cristallo, ferrata Ivano Dibona. The crew stayed in Cortina more than three months. Further filming took place in Durango, Colorado. The credits of the film also thank the Ute Tribe for filming in the Ute Mountain reservation.

(at around 29 mins) As the jet approaches low over the mountains, with its shadow just beneath it, the shadow moves across the ground, and onto the plane itself. See more »
In the UK there are four versions of Cliffhanger, all rated 15, which are the following...
Cinema Release: One minute and eight seconds are cut.
First and Second Video Release: An extra 16 seconds are cut.
First DVD Release: Originally to be released uncut with a presumed 18 rating, but the British censors forbade it as the censored version was still on the market. As such, the DVD master was cut to match the previous video but was cut in a rather lazy manner, including jump cuts on the soundtrack.
Second DVD Release/First Blu-ray release: Original R-rated version
Sylvestor Stallone (Rocky,Rambo) teams up with Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2) for the well-casted film Cliffhanger. Original, realistic, and just plain entertaining. There is a little something for everyone in this film, including a bit of humor.
