Movie Review: Everest (’15 Baltasar Kormákur)

Everest is visually splendid. The cinematography is top notch and the scenery is just breathtaking. That is like the biggest golden factor of the film that it can be proud of. The phase though is a bit boring, if not bland. The most exciting parts weren’t enough but it sure has those moments of “wow” and thrill. Jake Gyllenhaal is still good but for me, his performance is not as good as his other performance which is from Southpaw. Jason Clarke is surprisingly good as the lead. The entire supporting cast were superb too especially Keira Knightly, Robin Wright, Emily Watson and Josh Brolin. I sure think that they took the acting spotlight away from Jake. All in all, even with a film that almost bore you still managed to pull fantastic visuals and performances from its actors and actresses. 6.5
