The chemistry between Idris Elba and Kate Winslet is what makes this movie. Although the plot is not fast-it is not an action movie-it suits the plot. The videography is stunning, the acting superb, and the emotional growth of the characters is compelling. I really enjoyed this movie, and will ce... Read More »

Bad acting, contrived plotline. The only thing worth looking at in this film are the mountains and snow.

Directed by Hany Abu-Assad in 2017 based on the novel of the same name by Charles Martin, this American romantic survival drama depicts the struggle and love to survive the plane crash.
It is a simple and slow-paced story with no surprises, no twists, no fascinating events and some predictable turns.

The book was oh so much was okay tho. I loved the last scene!

The scenery was wonderful! The story seemed incredibly familiar--like every plane crash or ship wreck movie. The acting was good, but not fabulous. I think the director didn't really know what to do with these two very talented actors. Did I mention the spectacular scenery?

Loved every minute of this beautiful, entertaining, exciting, and well-acted movie - especially the ending which was totally unpredictable to me. In fact, the whole movie was unpredictable to me and that really made the film fun to watch. I didn't read about the plot beforehand. After they made the brave decision to leave the plane, I sat back and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. After the movie was over the title of the movie gained more meaning.

I liked this movie and thought the acting was good. I found some of this to be unbelievable. Wood was always available for a fire. What did the dog eat while they were lost for that length of time? They has so little food between them but the dog had lots of energy. I forgot she shot a cougar with a flare gun and they ate the cougar. When she fell through the ice, it was amazing that he just reached into the water and pulled her out. Oh well, it is just a story with a predictable ending. Beautiful mountain scenery!

With two such great actors this movie fell flat, mostly due to the directing. There are some weird camera angles especially at the end which make the film disappointing. The dog as others have mentioned is the best part of the movie. The biggest issue with this movie is that do we really care what happens to these two? The answer is no so that is why our emotions focus on the dog - who unfortunately never gets a name - instead of the couple who are such opposites that only a plane crash could bring them together. Yes, the cliche of cliches is at the central plot line of this film. The whole movie is a tough slog to get through and I was proud of myself for not fast forwarding through it. That is all I can say I got out of it.

Liked it, then did not like it, then liked it, and then did not like it, but ended up giving it a *** star rating. The scenery was beautiful. And I loved the story.

Wonderful movie!!! I loved every moment of it. You will be rooting for the characters in this story every step of the way.

I found this movie quite boring even with Winslet and Bridges. Ejected after 15-30 minutes.

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?
