They had to watch Vertical Limit for English class? I guess all the copies of Cliffhanger were checked out.

I didn't like the film because I hate watching people climbing. It's so boring. It's not the type of movie I would watch.

How old are these idiots? Judging from their writing, they are much too young to watch Vertical Limit. I weep for education in this country.

The film was exciting.I was wondering whats gonna happen next.I would reccomened this movie 2 climbers.


There were climbers climing k2 and an avalanche cameand they got stuck in a crevasse.Then people saved them.


I like peter becausehe is the main character.Peters sisteris stuck in the crevasseand peter saves her.

The best bit was in the crevasse the worst was the avalanches they looked so unreal.

The movie vertical limit was exciting at the start of the movie but it got a bit boring at the end.I aws relieved when it was finished.


This movie is about people climbing the mountain,dying form frost bite and falling down a hill.


Peter was motivated to get to Annie to save her as they were pretty loyal to each other.Their dad died so they care for each other more.


The most exciting special effect was when the bomb hit the bottom of the cliff and blew up and the when the avalanche was caused.The avalanche looked fake

This is a cool movie but the problim is that it is too predictable.The thing I liked about the movie is Vaughan.I recommend this movie to people that like climbing.

The plot of this movie was boring .Is was jast walking up a montin,people dying and getting blownup.

I like Vaughn becouse he is evil and started to kill people. I like him because he was not as predictable as the other characters.

The special effects were bad.The only special effects that did look real were the explosinons.The avalanches were amateur for hollywood.

would watch.

At the start Annie her brother and her dad was climbing the mountain. The brother had to cut his dad off the rope to save his sister or they would all die.

I didnt like it and the avalanche looked fake.

I think the movie is an action packed,seat griping film with lots of detailed moments.I didn't really like the fake avalanche but overall I loved it alot.
The movie is about a young mountaineer who one day has to save his sister from a crevasse which she and two other men fell into.
I think the characters were very enthusiastic, as they never gave up when they were trying to save Annie,Tom and Vaughan from the crevasse.
Some of the best special effects in this movie are the nitoglycerine which blows up. Some of the worst one's would be the fake avalanche and the fake explosion.

I did not like all of this film VERTICAL LIMIT.My favourite bit in this movie would have to be at the end when Peter and Annie saw each other after every thing that had happend.I think climbers would like this flim more than me.
It is all about mountain climbers.Anie wanted to climb K2 for her father after his death Annie and some other people got in danger Peter,Annies big brother didn't stop trying to find her until she was safe.
The charters play there parts well.Peter is very detemend to save his sister and her team you can tell who is nice good and detemend.
The specail effects of the movie are ok,but the avalanches are really bad.The explosoins are good.I could tell that the crevasse was really cold.

The move was a bit slow but some bights where exiting.

The movie was mainly about the reckue when peter was trying to reckue his sister.

I think that peter is very brave but vaugnan is very cruel and eval.

The specidl efects of the averlanchers where very fack looking.

I liked the fire and stuff (explosion).

This movie was mostly about people climbing mountains.

My favourite characters were monique peter and a phew more.

The avalanch looked fake.

I seriously did not like this film!It was so sad the worst part was when an evil as guy named Vaughn murdered Tom it was a seriously a sad as movie but I would recomend it to some humans who like tramping and hiking.Well what happened was that 6 people were climbing around the mountain and a giant avalanch came tumbling down and got 3 innocent people stuck in a crevasse and the other 3 died....tear.My favourite character has got to be Annie because she never gave up and was a great friend to her mates.Well first of all the worst effect ever was definantly the avalanch it looked totally fake but the best looking one was the crevasse it looked absolutely real so maybe the movie wasnt that bad but its not a movie I would reccomend for myself.

This is actually Brad Talbot's review.
Over all I thought this movie, Vertical Limit, was a really great movie.It would be a perfect movie for someone who enjoys climbing and who enjoys action movies.

I enjoyed Annie because she tried to save Tom's life. She's a friendly lady, that's why I liked her

I didn't like the guy in the blue jacket because he cost lots of lives and he killed a guy with a needle.

They start off from base camp to go to the summit to save 3 people but 5 died to do the tranp.

I like the girl monique because she is cool she saved a guys live and she did a big jump to the rock and clipped a metal thing onto a rock and got back up.

This one seems apporpriate. A bunch of kids sitting on their asses complaining about watching a mindless movie instead of learning the language.

Not a bad start, but did any of the characters smoke? Did they blaspheme? What were you eating while you watched the movie?

Who posted the link to dvdtalk? That was just rude considering the tone of this thread.

If anyone from imdb links here, I think your reviews were cool. Keep writing and don't take the criticism of a bunch of cynics too seriously.

We're glad that you're enjoying them people... but take a look around; it isn't only not-highly-literate thirteen year olds who are mangling the English language and having trouble expressing their ideas. Sure, they've a lot to work on, but at least they're engaging in a public discussion about a 'text'(of questionable merit I accept, but you have to start somewhere).
You'll be pleased to know that this week they're learning how to use apostrophes.

Man, that was so not cool of whoever posted that link to this thread @IMDb.

In addition to tasha99, I would also like to say to any kids clicking over to this thread - I hope you keep writing your thoughts about the movies you see! And ignore the people here and anywhere else who make fun of you. Your writing is better than some of the "adult" writers on this board. Seriously.
