  • The director, 66, brings his passion for precision to every frame of the film, refusing to hype or Hollywoodize the detailed richness of the story. show more

  • As Russell Boyd's remarkable cinematography emphasizes the dwarfing grandeur of the surrounding topography, Weir shows how the corresponding smallness of individuals is compensated for by the grandeur of their aspiration. show more

  • The Way Back, with its epic story and spectacularly bleak setting, invites comparisons with "Laurence of Arabia" and "Dr. Zhivago." It's awash in vast, unforgiving terrain. So it got the setting right, but not necessarily the substance. show more

    Extremely well done. Worth the time to watch. Amazing story if you like human drama. Take the time to watch the 45 minute or so discussion of how the movie was put together with filming in Bulgria, Morroco, Etc.

    Based on a true story. I felt that some of the time spent on the struggles these brave men faced, should have been spent in character development. Still a gripping, and worthwhile film.
