The best of 'Everest' is its cast, delivering and believing in what it's doing. [Full Review in Spanish]

Although you can appreciate the fact that the events of the film stay relatively true to what actually happened and the technical aspects of the film are fantastic, it's still disappointing that the characters aren't given enough attention.

I'll recommend it for what it is: a far-too-real disaster film. Bring the tissues.
January 23, 2019
Best seen in IMAX 3-D, the movie takes full advantage of the format, showcasing the wondrous rock-and-ice covered landscape and extreme elements.

The special effects are dizzying and truthfully, director Baltasar Kormakur seems to have dedicated most of his effort to giving the audience the feeling of being right there with the climbers.

When making a film about a true life disaster that you want to equally make an innovative 3D blockbuster, it is a bit selfish on the behalf of the filmmakers to prioritise innovating moviemaking technology over paying tribute to the climbers.

Everest is an engrossing cinema experience when it focuses on the intensity and drama of this real-life disaster, but its ultimate downfall is its unmanageable scope.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
August 23, 2018
Though it is set in 1996, Baltasar Kormakur's stunningly shot Everest is an old school disaster movie of the kind that flourished in the 1970s.

The levels to which Kormákur has gone to to thrust the audience into the headspace of why climbers attempt this dangerous feat is impressive.

Everest is one of the most enjoyable natural disaster films in years thanks to its humanistic approach in creating awareness to a truly death-defying activity

November 4, 2017
Long on palm-sweat-inducing tension and large in scale, the production hits high notes courtesy of the talented ensemble and nature's beautiful (albeit humbling) splendor.

Along comes Everest, a brilliant dramatisation of tragically real events that, quite simply, is one of the most powerful and moving films I've seen all year.

Everest is not a triumphant story of human courage and sacrifice. It's a reminder-we are powerless in the face of Nature's indifference.
September 20, 2017
Since most of us will never see Mount Everest with our own eyes, this movie shows the best - and worst - of what it can offer.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Everest is three-fourths guide through the unrelenting onslaught of nature and one-fourth regretting the tour.

This isn't a movie about a man or group of men at all -- this is a movie about mankind.
December 5, 2016
Everest is one of those cinematic spectacles that doesn't insult the intelligence of its audience and tries to tell the truth about an extraordinary adventure as solidly and dramatically as it can.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Everest is nice to watch, and pretty impressive technically. But it becomes a bit of an effort after a while, and it's always hard to deeply sympathise with the thrill-seeking western climbers.
