Not only do you get to see a great Doco, but you see all the climbers that you hang out with.

No doubt it will be a very popular movie for this niche market. Definitely worth the trip to see it, even of your not a climber. The video footage is amazing. Do the Huber brothers break the record? Well I guess you have to see it to find out.

I thought it was crap. So edited and so cut. The hauling on 'biners for speed looked lame and the fall
sequences were pathetic. The cliches that came out of the mouth of Dean Potter (I think) were priceless
and the sight of T. Huber crying made my day.

Went to the 5:40pm session on Friday, we were the only two in the cinema! It only got 1/2 a star in the Age last week so probably won't last long.

Negatives aside, I really enjoyed it. Capturing footage on a 3000' wall must be logistically very difficult, but there were some excellent shots. A little bit long though, the Patagonia trip could have been snipped.

For what it was I have to say it was not bad, hard to make a movie like that and please everyone I guess. It was about 1/2 full when I went on the weekend.

It was good to see that even the best make some really big mistakes.

15 mins of good climbing footage, some good talking stuff between the bro's about why they do what they do....

I find it is fun to work out when Dean P is stoned and not. At the start he was for sure, then he woke up, the later on, back to himself again.

And chongo! Yeah!

Just saw this tonight and loved it all. The landscape the climbing and mostly the background behind why and how they do what they do. The climbing shots were great and you could definentley sense the exposure of the cliff itself.

I saw it yesterday, and was disappointed. Not a touch on Hell on Wheels, the director's other doco. It should have been cut down into a 30 minute made for TV documentary. I got bored.
