Everest | Ratings & Reviews

"Between Robert Zemeckis’ upcoming The Walk and this struggle for survival atop the planet’s highest mountain, fans of vertiginous cinema experiences are well served for spectacle this year, especially when writ large across IMAX screens. From its title onwards, Everest doesn’t muck about. Like 2013's Sir Ed docu-drama Beyond the Edge, it thrives on sometimes treating, sometimes terrifying the audience with the sheer scale and spectacle of the awe-inspiring Himalayan peak."

"Almost in spite of thrilling visuals and a chillingly real situation so diligently covered for the most part, there remains a niggling feeling the movie is not making the emotional connection with the audience that it should."

Herald SunHerald Sun

"Everest is a somewhat histrionic spin on a real-life tragedy."

The TimesThe Times

"Everest (the film), in short, suffers from the same problem as Everest (the mountain): overcrowding."

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"Worth watching just to see the places human beings should probably never tread, even though they keep climbing toward them."


"For all the natural spectacle, the characters are what hold one's attention."

Chicago ReaderChicago Reader

"Harrowing, edge-of-the-seat stuff."

The Straits TimesThe Straits Times

"An interesting tale of tragedy and survival."

Times of IndiaTimes of India

"Blunt, businesslike and — as it begins its long march through the death zone — something of an achievement."


"The craft of this film is astonishing..."

Time OutTime Out

"It never makes the crucial leap from the screen into your bones."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"A frustrating movie in many ways... it doesn’t quite deliver the edge-of-your-seat thrills that many were hoping for..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A monumentally spectacular film."


"A big, brassy '70s-style disaster movie which wears its clichés lightly and packs a hefty emotional punch."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"A disaster movie in the old Hollywood sense of the term, but it doesn't feel like one. And that's a good thing."
