Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This absorbing account of the first recorded summit of the world's highest mountain is a rare documentary for which re-enactments make complete sense. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Jul 3, 2014

Rotten: Like a mountaineer grappling on sheet ice, the film's focus on performance can result in a loss of footing. – Diana Clarke, Village Voice, Jul 2, 2014

Fresh: Recalled in the somewhat breathless History Channel-style voice-overs of the participants and their families, the journey was a triumph of guts, perseverance, endurance, ingenuity and teamwork. – Ella Taylor, NPR, Jul 3, 2014

Fresh: Beyond The Edge brilliantly blends archival footage and reconstructions provide an engrossing, if sometimes dry, retelling of a breathtaking achievement. – John Noonan, FILMINK (Australia), Oct 16, 2014
