Sober Film Critic James Brown70 - I feel like I'm about to rewrite my review of Everest. If I'm a risk-averse individual who sees no merit whatsoever in climbing Mount Everest for the hell of it, you can only imagine what I think about walking a high-wire in the most dangerous location fathomable.

Bryan Lienesch53 - Though the actual scenes walking between the two towers themselves are breathtaking, everything leading up to it is a painful lesson in how not to handle a biopic.
