  • Summary: Great quality movie that was based on a true story. A true gripping epic climbing adventure that will rattle your emotions. The movie is in German language, but sub titled in English. If you watched Touching the Void, then you'll love this one.

  • Summary: Tremendously engrossing drama and from the first I "thought I was there" inside the movie. Critics may have lots of complaints but this movie was wonderfully real and believable to me. I recommend it completely.

  • Excerpt: The Danish Bluray edition don't have all the extras, only deleted scenes and Visual Effects of North Face. Worth seeing more than once..

  • Summary: Loved it. Recommended it to my friends. Guys will like it, chicks may not. I've been rock climbing (not those fake walls at the gym) and this movie makes you realize how tough it is, especially back before WWII.

  • Excerpt: What a boring, poorly written film. Great mountain climbing scenes are interrupted by non-mountain climbing scene filler featuring a female horse that speaks German. I'll take Vertical Limit or Cliffhanger over this film any day.

"NO MAN HAS EVER BEEN UP THERE"

  • Excerpt: I imported this from Amazon.UK It's one of my favorite Blu's in my collection. The story is gripping and filled with suspense and nail biting tension. Stallone's Cliffhanger is minced meat compared to this great film. The entire unknown cast to us here in North America is solid and the cinematography and special effects are outstanding. A definite must own for any Blu-Ray collection & it's region free!!

  • Excerpt: X-tream Mountain Adventure Nazi Period Style; this BD will fulfill, thrill, look pretty then slash 'n run. Played flat, like a documentary, this powerful drama is also a real cliffhanger! With the German war period, the Olympics and climbing the Eiger for real and the fatherland; the film has a tapestry that works slow and cool. The subject is delivered as slick as any new Hollywood film with an honest difference.

  • Summary: Brilliantly retold, filmed and directed true life drama of the drive in many to conquer that often takes their lives over, in this case in the pursuit of national pride.

  • Summary: What a brillant movie. Lots of action and suspense. Highly recommend to those that want a natural high. Not good for those who are fearful of heights. Not at all boring.

Don't be too concerned with the truth

Don Liska, Flicks
10 May 2012
  • Summary: A superbly filmed drama which has climbing scenes far more gripping than the actual route on the Eiger itself, albeit well done and exciting. However,the movie misleads in so many ways that climbers cannot take it seriously if they are at all aware of the actual events of 1936. An outstanding example of one mistruth is Willy Angerer's broken leg. Totally false. It was a group decision to descend together from the 2nd icefield.
