Adventure: Rival mountain-climbing teams must come together on Everest when a severe snowstorm hits, imperiling multiple climbers.
In 1996, professional mountain-climber Rob Hall (JASON CLARKE) leaves behind his pregnant wife, Jan (KEIRA KNIGHTLEY), to mount an expedition to climb Mt. Everest. Regular citizens like mailman Doug Hansen (JOHN HAWKES), rich Texan Beck Weathers (JOSH BROLIN), and travel journalist and publisher Jon Krakauer (MICHAEL KELLY) pay him money to get them to the top. Rob is assisted by climber Andy "Harold" Harris (MARTIN HENDERSON) and base camp manager Helen Wilton (EMILY WATSON).

Once in Nepal, though, Jason and his staff are dismayed when they learn that a number of other teams are hoping for similar windows during which they can also climb to the top. Chief among them is Scott Fischer (JAKE GYLLENHAAL), who has a friendly rivalry with Rob and is dismayed that Krakauer is going to be shadowing Rob's team for a feature cover article and not his.

Once on the climb, all concerned find it to be a grueling mission with some quitting or turning back. Beck starts to have second thoughts and calls his wife, Peach (ROBIN WRIGHT) back in the States. Eventually, the rival teams run into a highly severe snowstorm that makes climbing back down Everest treacherous at best and possibly impossible for some. All of the climbers are put into mortal jeopardy, and it's up to Helen and climber Guy Cotter (SAM WORTHINGTON) -- who has been shepherding less accomplished climbers on the lower elevations, but ever-watchful -- to come up with a plan that will save as many of their lives as possible.

With the allure of IMAX 3-D and some amazing spectacle, tweens and teens may have some interest.
For intense peril and disturbing images.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
