Based on a true story, this movie revolves around the journey of Josh and Jason, two climbers, who try to reach Everest summit, the highest place in the world, as in May, they begin to finish their work and reach the summit, till a terrible storm strikes the mountain, the thing that challenges them and was about to lead them to lose their lives.
Ultimately, "Everest" is an achievement of production, capturing the landscape in striking IMAX cinematography. It's also the compelling tale of mountains and the people who feel the need to conquer them, or be conquered in the process.

Everest is one of those cinematic spectacles that doesn't insult the intelligence of its audience and tries to tell the truth about an extraordinary adventure as solidly and dramatically as it can.
I don't usually suffer from chattering teeth and attacks of vertigo while watching a movie, but as this panorama of Himalayan disaster reached its climax I began to fear that I might need paramedics and an emergency evacuation.
Everest takes an inordinate amount of time to get the pieces in place. However, once the group departs base camp and begins the ascent, the film sloughs off its slow pace and transforms into a gripping tale of survival, life, and death.
