About the Movie

K2, a 28,250-foot mountain in Pakistan's Karakoram Range, is the setting for this adrenaline-pumping action-adventure. It's a race against time when a retired mountain climber (Chris O'Donnell) leads a rescue mission to save his estranged sister (Robin Tunney) and other members of her team who have become trapped on K2 after a deadly avalanche. Martin Campbell, the celebrated director of The Mask of Zorro and GoldenEye, delivers high-voltage action and exhilarating suspense in a film that pits man against his own limitations and the awesome power of nature's uncontrollable elements.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The visuals are stunning, but that's not enough. They can't make up for this predictable story populated by cardboard-cutout characters. The film needs more rescuing than that. – Paul Clinton (, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The picture cuts from story thread to story thread, and in such a choppy fashion that we're rarely given the vistas that would allow us to take in the physical layout of the action. – Charles Taylor,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: When the characters just shut up and dangle, Vertical Limit becomes one heck of a wild time. – David Germain, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: One of the most thrilling - and authentic - mountain-climbing films in recent memory. – Jonathan Foreman, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

Movie Projector use it..

If anyone else owns a movie projector, you can hook your ipod up to it.. and watch on a the wall.. This movie definitely looks pretty awesome on a Wall.

Great Movie

Watch this movie on the wall definetly. One of the best movies ever (although no sane person would acctually carry nitroglicerine).

On the wall

Do you have a wall? Have you ever seen a wall? If you answered "Yes" to either of those questions, this movie is for you. Try watching this movie on the next wall you see, or one you even own. Try it. It completes the experience. You know what? I dare you to watch it on 2 walls at once! How stunning would that be? As stunning as the Wall makes it. Thank you very much.
