Move over, Cliffhanger
3 October 2019 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Wait, there is another action movie about mountain climbing. Move over, Vertical limit. Although this movie was far to overdramatized I must admit it made the action scenes far more suspenseful and exciting. They were done well, not well enough to truly justify the IMAX ticket, but it still kept me on the edge of my seat so that's good. Plus, having Jackie Chan do a cameo is almost like an action film's seal of approval. It's a wining score for me
