EVEREST 3D: Knowing full well that my mountain climbing days are over, I opted to go there anyway by seeing Mt. Everest through this engrossing movie. Based on a real incident, (Aren't they all, these days?) this is the story of two different expeditions that combine forces and attempt to scale the lofty heights only to get hit by a ferocious storm unlike any ever seen. Needless to say, it is a story of survival. (Or will they?) An outstanding cast including Jason Clark, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley and Emily Watson bring this film to life and the 3D adds greatly to this atmospheric tale by never feeling gimmicky or forced. Believe me, by films end you feel you have scaled the mountain yourself. At times harrowing, always intriguing, this is thrilling movie-making. And what scenery to behold at the top of the world! A true adventure!
