Movie Review: Everest

Everest may not be the most exciting film this year, but what really made this work were the stunning visuals. Really. Every single shot looked breathtaking, the cinematography was splendid, and it was just an all around spectacle. There were even moments where I was transcended to the vast landscape of the mountains that I genuinely felt the chills, literally. The cast also delivered some fine performances. Jason Clarke was unexpectedly good as the lead, but it was the support from Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson, and Robin Wright that made things a lot more relatable. That being said, the narrative became progressively cluttered, and the character development was a tad weak and inconsistent that I somehow didn't care much about any of them, which was odd. Ultimately, Everest's magnificent visuals, at the very least, made this a dynamic experience and somehow compensated to some of the film's glaring flaws. 7
