Everest directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2015), is a film about the 1996 Mount Everest climbing disaster, the climbers and crew who were there to experience what had happened, and the legacy of the climbers. This film focuses on one of the many climbing disasters that have happened on Mount Everest as it is a dangerous mountain to climb but the fear has lessened due to the fact that lots of people climb it and return. However, people tend to forget, mother nature is not always so kind and things can change instantly. What I do like about this film is that shows their mistakes, their attempts to cautiously go atop the mountain, and that persistence in some type of way can lead to your survival or your death. During the film, you’ll become deeply involved in the story as it progresses and then all of a sudden the disaster hits you. I can see why they chose this story to make a film about. Especially when they have an account from someone who was there and wrote a book about it to help guide them along. The acting was great, the story was great, and the filming was great. All in all, it’s worth a watch and it’s something I will definitely be watching again.
Watched on Netflix.
