Stunning visuals and amazing theatre experience!

It is based on the real events of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, and focuses on the survival attempts of two expedition groups, one led by Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal) and the other by Rob Hall (Jason Clarke). The two expeditions, Adventure Consultants and Mountain Madness, meet at base camp and prepare to summit Mount Everest in the following days. But as we all know it, Mother Nature can be unpredictable...

I love outdoor movies like this and luckily Everest didn't disappoint. Stunning visuals, spectacular shots, the movie immerses you into the environment and you get to know the characters and care about them. The whole cast was great as well! What a movie! Definitely 2015 must see! What could be better you ask? I think characterization could be done better and also the script. Nevetheless, it's really good and a perfect film to watch in 3D in the cinema because it adds to the experience. 4/5
