Everest is not a film that inspires extended commentary, at least for those who are not mountaineers, armchair or otherwise. That’s not because it’s a bad film, though–indeed, despite the somewhat muted (if ultimately positive) reviews, it’s a very good example of a true spectacle, a film designed for the IMAX 3D experience, which for its first week of release it is being shown exclusively in.
And if you can, you should see it thus. The 3D might not add much (though I confess it has almost never done so for me), but the vast screen and especially the enveloping sound make for a galvanizing experience, elevating quite a solid film into something like a cinematic event.
