Vertical Limit

There’s cheesy gold in them thar hills!

Wildly-implausible, yet undeniably-entertaining, this is one of those late ’90s/early 2000’s disaster films like Dante’s Peak or Deep Impact which have a place in my heart.

This time out, Chris O’Donnell and Robin Tunney are a brother/sister duo, the best mountain climbers in the biz, but unable to reconcile with each other over their father’s death.

Of course, it’s no surprise when one sibling gets trapped in an extremely-dangerous locale, requiring the other to mount a last-gasp rescue effort.

This is a popcorn movie done right, and it hits the spot.
