Lisa Marie Bowman75 - The narrative may be predictable but the visuals are stunning. Be sure it see it in 3D!

Sober Film Critic James Brown70 - Everest is certainly entertaining, but I can never quite get behind the concept. It's not about suspending my disbelief but simply accepting the dumb things that some of the film's characters (and presumably some of the real life figures behind this tale) do.
