An interesting take of Chinese conquering the mount Everest
2 February 2020 | by sneakablezSee all my reviews

The movie itself really shows strong determination of conquering not only the greatest odds of mountaineering on Everest but also the sacrifices that have to be made for the sake of achieving the ultimate goal for any mountaineer and so as for their country. This is where the movie shines by a lot. You'll it good flowing down your skin as you watch it.

Where the movie doesn't shine? It's too unrealistic to be honest. The CGI made the location look odd compared to Western's Everest movies. The visual at the Everest are totally lacking realism to be honest. And also they made it way too dramatic and kinda long too to be honest.

Nonetheless, it's still an okay movie to watch but I've seen better. Even so it's not bad nor best but rather mediocre movie that is still worth your spare time.
