Overview

A solid DVD treatment serves to lift this mountaineering adventure from the realm of the ordinary. The picture is a stunning widescreen transfer, presented in its 1.85:1 aspect ratio. It is crystal clear and worthy of a postcard, highlighting the awe-inspiring mountain that makes up the film's set piece. Sound is in Dolby Digital 5.1 and gets well used during some of the headier action scenes. Viewers will especially enjoy the mountain of extras, including an information-laden commentary from director Martin Campbell and producer Lloyd Phillips. Also on the disc is a documentary on the making of the film, with plenty of behind-the-scenes footage and a section called "Search and Rescue Tales." This title is somewhat misleading, since viewers get a slew of mini-featurettes about the making of the film instead of real-life mountaineering stories. Still, they're very interesting and give a good look at the making of Vertical Limit. Of course, there are also the requisite trailers and bios here as well. Regardless of what one may think of the film itself, the DVD ofVertical Limit is well worth checking out.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
When you’re climbing the world’s most dangerous mountain, attempting to reach the Vertical Limit, those goosebumps you feel aren’t just due to the cold. That’s the lesson learned by thrill-seeking tycoon Bill Paxton, who hires young but experienced climber Robin Tunney to guide his party to the nearly unreachable, snow-packed summit of "K2." Paxton’s recklessness first endangers and eventually strands the group, forcing Tunney’s brother, Chris O’Donnell, and grizzled mountain man Scott Glenn to attempt a perilous rescue. The characters in this picturesque, gripping adventure are easily recognizable types, but director Martin Campbell The Mask of Zorro elicits nuanced performances which make them seem relatively fresh. Glenn rates kudos for his clever underplaying of the taciturn veteran whose participation in the rescue mission conceals a secret agenda, and Paxton shows range as the initially personable industrialist who gradually succumbs to base instincts after being trapped in an icy crevasse. Breathtaking locations, nimble camerawork, and daredevil stuntwork combine to make Vertical Limit an enormously satisfying action flick. The DVD features commentaries by Campbell and co-producer Lloyd Philips, along with an HBO First Look featurette, production notes, and a look at similar search-and-rescue operations.
All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
Following the great visual successes of GoldenEye (1995) and The Mask of Zorro (1998), director Martin Campbell continues honing his reputation as a creator of smart thrillers with this exciting, fast-paced action-drama set in the Himalayas. If the script at times strains credulity with stock supporting characters such as those played by Bill Paxton and Scott Glenn, it also maintains a taut, suspenseful framework for Campbell's ingeniously mounted action scenes. The screenplay by Terry Hayes and Robert King also keeps the tension high by zipping along at a brisk clip, never allowing the audience too much time to consider how outrageous the entire enterprise truly is, which is the mark of a superb "B" picture. The cast, led by Chris O'Donnell and Robin Tunney, is uniformly fine, with Alexander Siddig a particular standout in a small role as a rescuer bent on saving his cousin. However, the real star of Vertical Limit is its director, as Campbell once again displays a high degree of capability with sprawling action material, putting previous mountain-climbing flicks such as Cliffhanger (1993) to shame.

    A MUST SEE FILM!!!

    This is a great movie for those who like action-packed films. Chris O'Donnell and Bill Paxton are awesome in this mountain-rescue film. If you liked ''Cliffhanger'', then this is a must-see for you!!!

    An action-packed thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat!

    I really enjoyed Vertical Limit because it was packed with three things I look for in a movie : comedy, thrills, and surprise.
