Notebook Reviews: VERTICAL LIMIT

Martin Campbell – 2000

2.5 out of 5 stars

Vertical Limit is a very poor action film from Martin Campbell, the director of Goldeneye and Zorro (two hugely entertaining movies). It has excellent potential, but sadly it fails on almost every level. The effects are terrible and the characters are thinly drawn (even for an action movie). The cast (Chris O’Donnell, Bill Paxton, Robin Tunney, and Scott Glenn) is game, but they have nothing to work with. 

Vertical Limit is a waste of talent and time. Go watch Renny Harlin’s Cliffhanger instead.
