Movie Reviews

Everest: Mountain of Dreams, Mountain of Doom
03/27/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The subject fascinates me. Interesting, but not as intense as;Everest, the Death Zone; and ;Everest, the Death Zone; was not nearlyas good as David Breshears' IMAX movie about Everest.There were some very interesting interviews with various climbers about Everest. The discussions about Hillary's efforts to help the people of Nepal to improve their quality of life was especially commendable, although that portion of the DVD was made in 1985. I would have liked an update about those projects. Before, I viewed the additional(bonus) items, I felt somewhat ripped off because I had thought I purchased a 1985 video. (The description gave the impression that this was a DVD with all new material.) However, those bonus items were more recent and made the DVD worthwhile."

"Excellent DVD. Has the original 1953 documentary about Hillary conquering Everest as well as two other documentaries. One has lots of original footage from the early expeditions of Mallory and Hillary. The other is about the later, more modern expeditions. Lots of footage, very good DVD."
