Slow Moving But Worth The Watch .

I loved everything about this thrilling drama...

Well worth the watch.

Everything was way too obvious in this film and most of it was predictable because the movie already hinted at it.

A real waste of time.

this one is quite unpredictable.

Sugar mountain keeps surprising you with twists and turns, not all of them being plausible, but entertaining and interesting nonetheless.

Potential but very drawn out and all over the place .

Highly recommend this breathtaking flick.

Really really slow .

That story might have served as a more engaging feature film for the producers of "Sugar Mountain.

Worth the watch.

Watch this film if you want to get bored it's boring it's slow it's waste of time


A few too many twists and reversals make an otherwise watchable and reasonably intense thriller stretch credibility a little too far.

This movie is incredibly boring.

Don't waste your time on this garbage.

Way too long, I had to force myself not to fast forward.

Overall, If you're bored and just want to watch something to pass some time, Sugar Mountain is watchable...

Plot is ever confusing, empty characters and/or acting, disappointment of a movie

All in all an interesting little film set in the breathtaking Alaskan wilderness.

Watching the lies unfold can be exciting to some, so it's safe to say this movie isn't for everyone.

The 2 rating was for the different scenery and the cinematography which gets wasted in this uninspiring story or script.

It lacks either good direction, writing, acting or whatever it is that makes a movie thrilling and dramatic.

This movie is rated low and yet it was waaayyy entertaining.

Contrast this movie with let's say the movie, A Simple Plan, which is dramatic, suspenseful, thrilling and has excellent acting throughout where you feel for the characters and their various plights.

This is the first time I'm commenting on IMDb simply because this movie is stunning.

It is as others have mentioned a bit slow.

I'd categorise this as a slightly suspenseful drama.

Empty characters, forced interactions and dialogue, a ridiculous concept to begin with.

don't waste your money or time.

In the DVD version of "Sugar Mountain," there was included a fascinating short documentary entitled "Cold War.

The scale of the place is stunning.

It moves so slow.

Movie is slow, has no direction and barely keeps you interested.

Lame waste of time .
