A jaded hitman protects a teenager from assassination. Clunkily-scripted but well-directed pan-Europe chase thriller with bags of well-choreographed lo-fi action. A hugely competent job done with very average raw materials.
Drama based on the ill-fated 1996 Hall/Fischer Everest expedition. Generally solid, respectful and well-acted mountaineering epic, slightly undone by over-use of CG and by some awkward directorial choices which rob the movie of tension.
