VERTICAL LIMIT (Theatrical Release USA 2000)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Vertical Limit
—interesting concept—is not the best mountaineering movie within the disaster mountain climbing and rescue films. It is, however, worth viewing and provides a thought provoking look at mountaineering. Watch for Chris O’Donnell and Robert Taylor. It will be interesting to see how Director Martin Campbell, known for The Mask of Zorro and GoldenEye, succeeds in his next film, Beyond Borders.
