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.
Rotten: Like a mountaineer grappling on sheet ice, the film's focus on performance can result in a loss of footing.
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.
Fresh: Beyond The Edge brilliantly blends archival footage and reconstructions provide an engrossing, if sometimes dry, retelling of a breathtaking achievement.
