The lead star was like a superhero climber. Its natural hazards have played a part in painting those who make it to the summit as wounded warriors: Baltasar Kormakur’s Everest and Jon Krakauer's best-seller Into Thin Air, both about one of the mountain’s deadliest seasons, are just two examples. Fang, however, stays in shape, even though he’s shunned, and doubt is thrown on the truth of the ‘60 climb. All rights reserved. As the world’s tallest peak (Mauna Kea excepted), Mount Everest has by this point been mythologized and romanticized by every nation and every team that has ever scaled its 8,000-plus meters since Edmund Hillary in 1953 — and possibly George Mallory in 1924. Master list to keep track of East Asian films I've seen (Gonna take awhile to remember it all lol). "The Climbers" is an unashamedly nationalistic film. It thought it was pretty entertaining. But before that, to quote Matt Damon’s Mark Watney from The Martian, team leader Fang has to "Wu Jing" the mountain to make it to the top and reassess Everest’s height for all the world to see (though an Indian team confirmed its height in 1955). --Film Combat Syndicate an exhilarating blockbuster --MAActionCinema See more. It is bizarre that the filmmakers felt there would be a market outside of China for this propaganda fest. Just confirm how you got your ticket. The Climbers had the potential to be a gripping drama-thriller and project China's soft power while doing so, but instead the overt focus on fighting for national pride makes the film a flop. Pure Mainland China propaganda corn about mountain climbers racking up a body count to get to the summit of Everest for the Motherland because they have to...take the altitude. Watch or buy. It was pretty good. Brian Costello, Common Sense Media . U.S. distributor: Well Go USA What if you made a mountain climbing movie not about man percevering and conquering nature, but instead about China being denied recognition on the international stage. But upon being told the first Chinese ascent is invalid due to lack of photographic evidence (Fang dropped the camera to save a teammate), the powers that be decide to go again and do a survey — because in Fang’s former captain’s words, “This is our mountain.” Nepal might have something to say about that. I give it a 5 because the action scenes were well done (though unbelievable). Lee balances vertiginous, windswept set-pieces with satisfying character beats. Director: Daniel Lee The gusto and pace put many of 2019’s American blockbusters to shame, and – right through to a wildly overcranked final act that throws up surprises like spindrift – Lee balances vertiginous, windswept set-pieces with satisfying character beats. As a climber myself I took into consideration that in those days the gear was nowhere near as advanced and strong as the gear these days. It sounds like these cats have an easier job than "Time Raiders", but wait until you see what Daniel Lee has them climbing. The biggest discomfort of the film is the split of emotions, the paleness of the narrative, the frivolous emotions, and the strong sense of disappointment after the high expectations are lost.

Indeed, I don't recall ever seeing so many flags in one feature. This movie had excitement,tension, action,romance,great cinematography and was well edited. I love Wu Jing, but becoming a huge star really hurt his movies. Incidentally, they're flipping back to the 1960s, as part of a team of summiters who manage to conquer the north face of Everest, one of the most dangerous stretches on Earth.

I love climbing movies and I saw Jackie Chan somewhere in the credits, so I sat down with a bottle of beer looking forward to enjoy this flick.

But don't worry, it's all CGI. It's not about getting to the top, it's about bragging to everyone else that you undisputably did.
