Overview

In Cliffhanger, Sylvester Stallone plays Gabe Walker, a member of a mountain-climbing rescue team. Gabe is haunted by an incident from his past when he couldn't save the girlfriend of his best friend, Hal Tucker Michael Rooker, from falling to her death. As the story begins, Gabe has left mountain-climbing rescue work and has set up business in Denver. He returns to the mountain rescue office to persuade his lover, Jessie Janine Turner, to quit and come back to Denver with him. While he is begging Jessie to head out to Denver, things are happening in the skies overhead. A gang of professional crooks headed by psychotic Eric Qualen John Lithgow has hijacked a U.S. Treasury plane carrying millions of dollars. But the plane crashes, and the bad guys find themselves stranded on top of a mountain with the money put into three cases scattered around the wreckage and with no way to get down off the pinnacle to retrieve the cases. They put in a phony distress call that is received by the mountain rescue team. Gabe agrees to take part in one last rescue attempt, and they head up to help rescue the thieves. But Qualen has plans for the rescuers -- to force them to climb through the dangerous snow-covered peaks to find the three suitcases of cash.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
One film that really lives up to its title, Cliffhanger generates more high-octane action and nail-biting suspense than most adventure movies. It represents a welcome change of venue for megastar Sylvester Stallone, generally seen plying his trade in urban locations. Here he plays a rugged mountain man whose flagging self-confidence is tested when criminals invade his snow-covered domain. John Lithgow portrays the ruthless leader of a gang responsible for the theft of $100 million, which has been accidentally lost in the Rockies. Stallone, forced to help Lithgow locate the swag, attempts to outsmart the crooks before the loot can be recovered. Director Renny Harlin Deep Blue Sea, shooting in Italy's picturesque Dolemite mountains standing in for the Rockies, skillfully deploys his cameras to capture a succession of dizzying action sequences replete with heart-stopping stunts. Not overburdened with plot, Cliffhanger succeeds admirably in its primary purpose: keeping viewers on the edge of their seats.

    sly

    slyvester stalone plays a great protagonist. THe movie was great, good scenery and drama. All the charactors do a good job. It makes you want to go out and climb a mountain and the drama keeps you on the edge of your seat. Good add for your collection of sly movies.

    One of Stallone's best

    I remember seeing the trailer for this movie before it came out and made sure I went to see it when it came out! Stallone has always been a favorite of mine and I don't care what people say or think about him. This film was clearly one of his best roles and it will forever remain in my library. The DVD has some cool features including a commentary by Stallone who wrote the screenplay. In his own words it is a balls to the wall action flick.
