Kyle and Mike are best friends who share a close bond - until Mike sleeps with Kyle's fiancée. The Climb is about a tumultuous but enduring relationship between two men across many years of laughter, heartbreak and rage. It is also the story of real-life best friends who turn their profound connection into a rich, humane and frequently uproarious film about the boundaries (or lack thereof) in all close friendships.
Everything about this film screams "independent." This usually means that the director, screenwriter and lead actor are all one person who can't do anything right, and the result looks correspondingly unfinished. In addition, there are other actors who look like amateurs or are, dialogues are often borderline in the case of a comedy, camera and lighting adapt to the low or now budget feeling. The Climb has all that and I'm just tired of such half-finished, late-pubescent ideas that neither have pace, nor develop real humor or a gripping story.
