Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...a high-altitude soap opera, woozy with overly telegraphed peril and determined to make the audience root for a couple who clearly aren't meant for each other and played by actors who deserve a generous C-minus in chemistry.

NY Post Full Review
Average ...a wilderness survival romance that makes subzero weather, blizzards and broken limbs seem as taxing as a train delay.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average ...just when you think this movie cannot get more unendurable ... it does. And then some. You can see every twist telegraphed from miles away even in a driving blizzard. The Mountain Between Us is epic all right – an epic waste of talent and your time.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average Hany Abu-Assad's film is notable for the way it fixates on its characters' rush toward survival, homing in on the intimacy that they achieve without ever suggesting that there's any actual romance in their future.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 68 moviegoers:
TEENS: The lone male and two of the three females loved this movie. The third female rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two males loved it, but the third males only rated it "average." The lone female loved it.
ADULTS: These are very good reviews from both males and females. Certainly better than the generally "average" reviews given by movie critics. Approximately half of both males and females loved it, with another 30% to 40% indicating that they enjoyed it very much. Just a small percentage rated it "average" to "below average."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
After an incoming storm forces the cancellation of her flight to New York, talented photojournalist Alex Martin finds herself stuck in Idaho the night before her wedding. Scrambling to make it home in time, she hits upon a long-shot idea and charters a plane to Denver in the hopes of catching the red-eye to New York that same night. Another stranded passenger, Ben Bass, a skilled British neurosurgeon due back on the East Coast to perform a critical, life-saving operation, tunes out his own misgivings about the plan and joins her.

As Alex and Ben fly ahead of inclement weather in a small Piper two-seater, their pilot suffers a massive stroke, and the small craft crashes in the deep snows of the Uinta Mountains in northeastern Utah. Trapped in the remote region with little hope of rescue, the two weary travelers embark on a terrifying and transformative pilgrimage across the unforgiving reaches of the vast, rugged terrain, fighting against the elements, animals and time. Under the most extreme circumstances imaginable, they gradually learn to trust one another, and a powerful connection grows between them-one that will reshape the course of their lives.
