K2, a 28,250-foot mountain in Pakistan's Karakoram Range, is the setting for this adrenaline-pumping action-adventure. It's a race against time when a retired mountain climber (Chris O'Donnell) leads a rescue mission to save his estranged sister (Robin Tunney) and other members of her team who have become trapped on K2 after a deadly avalanche. Martin Campbell, the celebrated director of The Mask of Zorro and GoldenEye, delivers high-voltage action and exhilarating suspense in a film that pits man against his own limitations and the awesome power of nature's uncontrollable elements.

Critics Consensus: The plot in Vertical Limit is ludicrously contrived and cliched. Meanwhile, the action sequences are so over-the-top and piled one on top of another, they lessen the impact on the viewer.

Mediocre disaster flick.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has many frightening and emotionally disturbing scenes. In the opening scene, a young man is forced to kill his father (at his insistence) in order to save his and his sister's lives. In another scene, a climber finds the frozen corpse of his wife, who died several years earlier. Characters are in almost constant peril from the dangers of the mountain, filmed to create maximum tension. There are a large number of deaths, including several perpetuated by one character to save his own life.
