Overrated part doco-part re-enactment telling the astonishing story of a pair of mountain climbers who truly face their limits, and have to make the ultimate sacrifices.

Hampered by a lack of genuine excitement and a final half-hour that drags on and on. Attempts to shed light on a person?s state of mind while caught in such a situation are unsuccessful, as is, despite having the subjects guiding us through the action themselves, a true grasp on their personalities. The men?s direct to camera monologues are often distracting, especially the extremely annoying expressions that register on their faces. Expand
