Plot Summary

Sarah was an inexperienced climber. She trusted Gabe to rescue her. But something went wrong high above the valley floor...Sylvester Stallone, John Lithgow, Michael Rooker, Janine Turner and Ralph Waite star in this high-altitude avalanche of action: a non-stop adventure peak with suspense and capped with heart-quaking terror. For Rocky Mountain Rescue, the mission is almost routine: locate five climbers. With the woman he loves (Turner) and his best friend (Rooker), Gabe Walker (Stallone) braves the icy peaks only to discover that the distress call is really a trap set by merciless international terrorist Eric Qualen (Lithgow). Now millions of dollars and their own lives hang in the balance. Against explosive firepower, bitter cold, and dizzying heights, Walker must outwit Qualen in a deadly game of hide-and-seek.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Cliffhanger, the new high-altitude thriller starring Sylvester Stallone, wastes no time in establishing its first priority, that of sending its audience into a cold sweat. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Aug 2, 2013

Fresh: Despite the don't-look-down Olympian settings, Cliffhanger's spirit is brutal and earthbound. The movie is like one of those computer-designed simulator rides that whip you around until you're dizzy and aching but don't actually take you anywhere. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: We are not at Cliffhanger for realism; we're there for the cliffhanging, and there's plenty of it. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jul 25, 2010

Rotten: Cliffhanger no doubt makes for a great coming attraction, but as a two-hour movie its claims are much more problematic. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Aug 3, 2013
