CLIFFHANGER (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Cliffhanger—the story fills its cup—may not be perfect, but somehow it doesn’t matter because it’s an interesting watch, gives an eyeful of Sylvester Stallone, and has the definition of drama down. The climbing scenes are gripping. John Lithgow, cast as the villain, adds interest. The action is well paced. The film, oddly enough, earns re-watchable status and serves as an addition to the home video collection.
