Kate Winslet & Idris Elba must bond and find their way out of a life threatening situation. Beautiful scenery, very well produced film with a strong story line. Basically, 2 actors and a dog. Well done, but pretty predictable.

Completely disappointed with this movie. I read the book first and loved it!! The movie changed much of the major facts of the book. You love the Ben in the book as he is kind and compassionate and capable and takes initiative. The Ben in the movie is weak and needy and needs taking care of. The Ashley in the book is funny and needs Ben to survive. But the Alex in the movie is very strong and not really likable and moves around great for someone who has a fractured leg!! No chemistry or character development in the movie. Missed out on the recorder aspect being a huge theme of the book but not in the movie. Just so disappointed I can barely finish the movie!!

I've tried to watch it twice now but still haven't put it in the player. And based on some of the comments, I may have been doing myself a favour.

Aug 20, 2018 of the worst films I've ever seen. Won't be able to ever watch any movie with Elba or Winslet again -- complete trash

Predictable, but good acting. Idris😊

Started out good.

They lost me when they flipped it from an adventure to a romance. Then it just dragged on.

Zero chemistry between these two talented actors meant the rest of the story wobbled. Beautiful scenery and some scary moments as they (and the dog) must decide whether to wait for rescue, or set out on foot.

Book was much better. Not sure why Hollywood has to change things - often for the worst!

This action/thriller film stars Kate Winslet as Alex and Idris Elba as Dr. Bass, as they must work together to survive after crashing in a plane on the side of an icy cold mountain. The pair must travel miles upon miles while forcing each other to keep going and to persevere against the odds. The movie did a fairly good job at keeping things entertaining for the audience even though it was largely centered around only two main characters out in the wilderness. With that said, it did become slightly slow-paced and boring at times. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars and recommend it to anyone who enjoys thriller films and the human urge to survive. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Surprised that this quote from the book was left out the movie:
“... the mountain between us is one I cannot climb .”
We can go three weeks without food, three days without water, and three hours without shelter.
I owe you an apology. I did find that beacon. I saw it. It was smashed to pieces.
-No, you didn't know that when you came looking for me, did you?
If we stay here we're safe. If we leave, search and rescue, they're less likely to find us.
-Look, I don't want to die up here because you're too scared to take a risk. We have to do something.
Ben... do you actually know what it means to be reckless? It means to abandon safety.
- I know exactly what it means, Alex. And sometimes... But right now... Right now, we don't have a choice, okay? Nobody knows where we are. You know, all we have is me and you.
And the heart is just a muscle. Right?
-What idiot said that?
