Is Kate trying to out do her buddy Leo? Unless she's willing to crawl out of a frozen horse carcass, I'm not buying it!

I caught this yesterday at a $5 theater using my Movie Pass.

I liked it and would probably give it between a B and B-

Beautifully shot movie and I thought Idris Elba and Kate Winslet were quite good in this. Some really gorgeous wilderness scenes. It reminded a little of The Edge.

The dialogue between them was a little awkward and clunky at 1st, but eventually they settled in and worked well together.

Not surprised that this movie has virtually no interest here. It's a survival movie mixed in with a romance. The budding romance angle really takes off in the final act of the movie.

The post-rescue scenes I think could have been tightened up a little. I thought they dragged somewhat, but overall I was never bored.

This is not the kind of movie I would ever need to re-watch again, but I found it a worthwhile late afternoon Matinee.

What a beautifully shot, well acted, bore of a movie.

I’m shocked either actor was involved.

The final act of the movie is best watched on fast-forward.

What the hell was the cougar doing at the top of the mountain? How dumb.
