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.
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.
