Wow, this is great! I'm gonna write a scene in my latest feature in which the hero floats in an icy river and doesn't die. And my buddy Jeff won't comment on the implausibility of it!  Woohoo!

Quoted from Dreamscale

This movie is all about the execution...and that's not saying anything bad about the script/story.

I agree. This movie isn't really about a story. Even though it's based on a true story, the story here is just there as a set up. This is one of those movies that are "an experience". Where you fall into the atmosphere of the movie, sit there silent and get engrossed in it.

A fine film. I agree with others that this script wouldn't sell itself. The bear attack is worthy of the hype and I don't get the early rumors that it looks as if Leo was raped by the bear. ???

I was cold after seeing this. Had to take a hot shower. I love knowing the fact that this wasn't a green screened movie. That the actors were out there. It was beautiful scenery. The dark tone of the film reeled me in.

My only complaint is that some of Tom Hardy's dialogue escaped me. Not sure if it was his accent or sound editing, but I missed a lot of what he said (which sucked).

Coming form the Aussie Bloke who hasn't seen a movie in 20 some years.  

Bro, this is something you literally can't comprehend unless you see it at the cinema.

To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Oh my gosh I just saw this and am buzzing. Obviously the cinematography and directing is amazing, but from the writing perspective there's so much to go into thematically, how that connects to plot, the sheer depth of it...

I was jotting down notes as I left the cinema, not sure if I'll get round to typing them up as it would be a loooooong post! We'll see. But I feel this really is a great film, in the old fashioned sense of the word.

Guess who's back? Back again?
