Everest is based on an incredible true story, the 1996 Mount Everest disaster. The story is about when a three guides take a group of people who are ambition to clime the worlds highest mountain. They meet up at the base camp and prepare to summit Mount Everest however a horrific storm is on the way. The Directed is Baltasar Kormákur.

The film is well beautifully made that gives you that cold feel considering the film was in front of an green screen at Pinewood studios as well as filming in several locations including Namche Bazaar and Nepal. Even though the cast & crew visited Mount Everest for there selfs. The actors performed on so many levels, even if you don't like the film you have to give the cast credit including Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, keira knightley and Josh Brolin. The actors were fantastic making the story incredible and believable, you wont recognise there own voices such as keira knightley playing Jan Hall who is from New Zealander. and also the fact are so realistic to the story.

However if you'll looking for the action to come out in front of you then Everest may not be the film. although there are a few scene's were the snow falls towards you, but it's still pretty good. The helicopter rescue adds tenses to the ending However if you've know the story, it won't spoil the film. It's still worth watching it in 3D but will be just as good in 2D. The soundtrack is calm and gives the effects of an adventure, written by Dario Marianelli.

I personally can't wait for this film to be released on 3D blur ray as I wanted to watch it again the next day even though i felt the opening scene was to quick and needed more of an pan shoot through the mountains to introduce the overall scenery. It's safe to say that after you walked out of the cinema, you'll either be cold or never moan of being to cold again. Overall it's a great film for the family, it's terrifying, scary and very cold and it will make you hold on to seat.

As said - “You my friends are following in the very footsteps of history, something beyond the power of words to describe. Human beings simply aren’t built to function at the cruising altitude of a 747.Our bodies will be literally dying.Everest is another beast altogether.”
