6 January 2016 | subxerogravity
| A Korean Movie about mountain climbing
This is the third film about mountain climbing I've seen in little under a year. First a documentary called Meru, then the Imax exclusive release called Everest. Now the Koreans tackle the subject.

Interesting enough, story wise I feel the Himalayas is a mix of both movies. The best Korean mountaineer goes up a mountain to find the remains of his student who froze to death.

Based on true events the story focus on mountaineer, Hong-Gil Um, a family man who loves to climb mountains. The movie has a lot to it as we go over Hong-Gil Um preparing for mountain climbing, training others for it, and what happens after it's all over.

The Himalayas tries to be a tear jerker. It does have it's moments, but overall it tries hard and gets nothing.

It's effective in making you not want to go up the mountain. The harsh weather was oh too real, and the visuals sometimes due what the story itself is unable.

the movie is Just OK, no where near outstanding.
