      Tara Brady Irish Times Loosely inspired by Dendoune's remarkable achievement, this warm, likable film adds a romantic-comedy subplot to an already irresistible underdog tale. Rated: 3/5 Jan 5, 2018 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Cutesie...but not every movie about Everest has to end with Josh Brolin's frozen corpse stuck on the North Face. Rated: 2/4 Jan 27, 2020 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Subtitled French romcom adventure has cursing, drugs. Rated: 2/5 Jan 10, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Cristopher G Tiene una historia muy conmovedora tiene información real un guión un poco aburrido cuesta empatizar con algunos personajes El final es bonito Jonny es súper buen personaje algunos chistes son Mee o no dan risa hay mucha lo más malo que hay son los personajes Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/09/23 Full Review Joaqun Really liked the story and tempo of the movie. If you are interested in watching something fun and real this is what you're looking for. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/01/23 Full Review Audience Member The French movies and TV series seem to be at the top of their game. The characters are nice the shows are positive and the acting is off the scale of the late stuff from America. And great leads like Ahmed Sylla what a smile! You can watch another murder in Los Angeles. De Niro playing De Niro or Joe Peci playing Joe Peci or Tom Cruise running jumping and flying to save the world. A great French show like Call My Agent - they ask even the actors to act. Or watch another CSI Florida, L. A. or New Orleans or South Dakota or or or... Guess the murder thing is just America? Another serial killer cool! While other countries shows tell up beat stories of life and love and stepping out of your comfort zone we Americans kill and do Red #15 and comic book characters. There are real heroes stories from around the world, you can't make up reality. Even the scarry movies are better - Train to Bussan, Into the Night, To the Lake. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review dave s Boy loves girl. Girl secretly loves boy. Boy climbs Mount Everest to prove his love. Girl lets him. That's the premise of The Climb, a very likeable story of unrequited love. Loosely based on a true story (apparently the names have been changed, the nationality of the climber has been changed, as has the motivation for climbing Everest), you will not be able to help yourself from cheering for the lovestruck protagonist, despite the fact that the whole premise seems implausible. The performances are fine, the cinematography is beautiful, the story is captivating, and, despite all of this, you will probably hate yourself for liking it when the final credits roll. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review toby h The Climb is loosely (very) inspired by Dendoune's unbelievable feat. This underdog tale doesn't take itself too seriously, with likeable and funny leads. Everest is a star in itself with the sweeping backdrops. Clamber aboard. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Very quirky tale of male friendship that leaves the female actors pretty much in the wings. The characters were also unlikeable.
