I didn't read the book, but enjoyed the movie, despite some of it not being very realistic or believable. Story concept was appealing, scenery was amazing.

I really enjoyed this movie. Kate Winslet is awesome as usual. The scenery is incredible.

The movie was supposed to be a drama but the dialogues are so ridiculous that it feels more like a comedy. I'm sorry about the great actors who had to say all that drivel. The dog, though, was very cute and the scenery definitely is spectacular.

Very unrealistic. No genuine chemistry between the characters. Overall, a great let down.

Seriously, this was the worst movie! I can't even believe they read the same book.

Good movie if you don't read the book first!

Great photography in the mountains - Stretches the reality button as far as a real plane crash outcome - Very predictable from start to end - A fair time waster -

Worth watching for the gorgeous scenery alone. The behind-the-scenes extra features reveal the months of planning and logistics that went into this movie. The production team and the actors endured high altitude settings, weather extremes (-38 temperatures), etc. Props to Idris Elba and Kate Winslet for doing most of their own stunt work. Winslet even took the plunge (literally) and did a near-drowning scene in sub-zero conditions. Very impressive.

Excellent film!

Great performances from Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Beau Bridges, and the dog!

Love the final song by Zayn! Excellent film!

Kate Winslet & Idris Elba must bond and find their way out of a life threatening situation. Beautiful scenery, very well produced film with a strong story line. Basically, 2 actors and a dog. Well done, but pretty predictable.

Surprised that this quote from the book was left out the movie:
“... the mountain between us is one I cannot climb .”
We can go three weeks without food, three days without water, and three hours without shelter.
I owe you an apology. I did find that beacon. I saw it. It was smashed to pieces.
-No, you didn't know that when you came looking for me, did you?
If we stay here we're safe. If we leave, search and rescue, they're less likely to find us.
-Look, I don't want to die up here because you're too scared to take a risk. We have to do something.
Ben... do you actually know what it means to be reckless? It means to abandon safety.
- I know exactly what it means, Alex. And sometimes... But right now... Right now, we don't have a choice, okay? Nobody knows where we are. You know, all we have is me and you.
And the heart is just a muscle. Right?
-What idiot said that?
