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.

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.

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.

Hit-and-miss filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur delivers a strong opening stretch that effectively sets up the scenario and various characters...

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.

I don't usually suffer from chattering teeth and attacks of vertigo while watching a movie, but as this panorama of Himalayan disaster reached its climax I began to fear that I might need paramedics and an emergency evacuation.

This is a tale of hubris and tragedy, a reminder that pushing oneself solely for the point of pushing oneself is not a particularly good use of one's time on this planet.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Everest's uncanny realism is a big part of what keeps you in its icy thrall.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 9, 2016
Stomach-turning 3-D puts you right over the black, bottomless crevasses on a shaky metal ladder. You may wish (like some of the climbers) that you hadn't come on this trip.
