The Dissolve
Though Ryan and Monroe prove adept at the film’s most elemental factors, they don’t offer enough backstory or characterization. Full Review
Bruce Ingram
Chicago Sun-Times
Unfortunately, the film’s more moving and memorable moments are mixed in with a king-size (if not quite K2-size) jumble of too much information. Full Review
Chuck Wilson
Village Voice
The Summit is at its most powerful when the filmmakers simply tell the tale, which gradually develops the unsettling suspense of a horror movie, with K2 cast as the implacable killer. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
As you watch these actors, you appreciate the endeavor the climbers went through all the more — and as triumph turns to tragedy, you feel the grief winding its way through your shaken nervous systems. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Interviews with survivors fill us in on the personalities of the lost, but the background of K2, with archival footage from 1954, is equally gripping. Full Review
