What to Know

Critics Consensus

Everest boasts all the dizzying cinematography a person could hope to get out a movie about mountain climbers, even if it's content to tread less challenging narrative terrain.

Max Weiss Baltimore Magazine Everest's uncanny realism is a big part of what keeps you in its icy thrall. Rated: 3/4 Jun 12, 2016 Full Review Ben Sachs Chicago Reader For all the natural spectacle, the characters are what hold one's attention. Sep 24, 2015 Full Review Emily St. James Vox It's unlikely to have the massive success of Gravity, as it doesn't have quite the uplifting ending of that film (though God knows it tries), but it's worth watching just to see the places human beings should probably never tread. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 23, 2015 Full Review Jordan Brooks Vague Visages Pulling on heartstrings and playing with tension, Kormákur and his team straddle territory occupied by similarly-minded, slick actioners on one side and biting emotional dramas on the other — neutralizing everything they have worked to build. Aug 2, 2023 Full Review Emma Clark-Dow Stuff.co.nz A hard watch...however, these emotions are heightened by the excellent work of actors and cinematography, who make the mammoth, deadly mountain and its treacherous conditions come to life through the screen. Aug 31, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies It isn’t a brash, bombastic popcorn flick. It isn’t a by-the-books ‘real events’ movie. Sure, it has its big name ensemble cast and its share of visual ‘wow’ moments. But at the same time it felt small, concise, and restrained. Rated: 4.5/5 Aug 20, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

klr d If you like adventure/survival films and stories, this is one of the best. Very well acted, and the look of the film is incredibly realistic. One of the best films of man vs the fiercest of nature. Solid film and very loyal to the facts of this tragedy. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/07/24 Full Review alice p There's about 20 characters to keep track of and only 2 have any kind of character development. First 45 mins is a waste of time. Once they actually get climbing (all wearing the same kit so even harder to keep track of who's who) the film takes off. Great drama, cinematography and acting for the most part. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review Stephen C You really feel the plight and anguish of the climbers and team members. Cast is phenomenal. Wonder what the real families thought of the movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Mortal If you like survivalist movies and the suspense they provide , then go ahead and watch it. It is a little slower than I wanted it to be, but still managed to keep my attention and move me. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review Tim M It's a slow crawl to its ultimate destination, but when push comes to shove, Everest is a well executed survival thriller with some daunting visuals. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Johannes S The movie portrays everything it aims to accomplish. The astonishing visuals of a Mount Everest climb, the dangers of high-altitude climbing, and the tragic story of the 1996 disaster. Don't expect a groundbreaking masterpiece and simply enjoy the visuals. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Read all reviews
