This is a compelling story as well as an unlikely love story.

Superbly edited, visually stunning.

Extremely engaging.

A fascinating portrait of the strength of character and dogged will displayed by these modern supermen of rock-climbing.

Absolutely one of the most enjoyable and well-documented nonfiction films I have ever had the pleasure of seeing .

The film is beautiful edited and the drama is intense.

Really stunning place, it already justifies the movie.

Intense and captivating documentary about grit and passion, one obsession, and brotherly attitude in repeated failures .. before success.

Yes I'm must admit it's a crazy feat of being to do so and the filmmaking is outstanding, but here the story is way more compelling as it's more than climbing and pushing yourself.

A very good show to watch and very suspenseful.

I got adrenaline rushes on top of my adrenaline rushes.

An intense and captivating experience .

And I got blisters on me fingers from gripping my seat!

An entertaining, moving and inspiring "rockumentary" (if you will) about two men who have earned the title to be the best at something almost impossibly difficult.

well worth watching .
