I first saw this film on Christmas Eve one year and it defined the year for me. What an epic! Another hyper violent action film that I was watching at a young age when I should have been sleeping. The most laughable thing about this film is that John Lithgow is in it. His appearance made me hate him for the next 10 years, and I still can't stand him! A totally unconvincing villain (especially agai... read more

"Kill a few people, they call you a murderer. Kill a million and you're a conqueror. Go figure."

Filmmaker Renny Harlin is no stranger to action films, and over the years he has proved skilled at staging exciting action set-pieces. Likewise, Sylvester Stallone was an acknowledged action super-star by the late '80s. During the early 1990s, Stallone's attempts to branch out into other... read more

I went to watch Jurassic Park which was full and ended up watching this instead. Visually fantastic - good action and some great scenes. XD

Movie Reviews (51-100) (50 movies items)

" One of the few good action films from Sly in the 1990s if treated in the right mindset and don't take the terrible dialogue, acting or characters seriously. It helps that the film kickstarts with a over-dramatic and unintentional comedic scene where Sly drops a woman to her death at the beginning while our hero screams at the top of his lungs. Another highlight is seeing wimpy John Lithgow kicking the shit out of Sly on top of a helicopter. One of the few good action films from Sly in the 1990"

"28th of April, Digiboksi Harlinin elokuvat ovat kaikki korkeintaan keskitason toimintarymistelyitä ja Cliffhanger onkin Die Hard 2:n ohella miehen siedettävämpää tuotantoa. Ihan viihdyttävä Stallone-pätkä kyseessä ja menee kertaluokan viihteenä. Michael Rooker varastaa show'n Stallonelta kuivine one-linereineen. John Lithgow'n väkinäistä brittiaksenttia mongertava Eric Qualen on varsin yksipuolinen ja tylsä pahis. Cliffhangerin parhaimmat hetket ovat kuitenkin näyttävät vuoris"

"19.1. Blu-ray (rewatch) Pitkästä aikaa ostin ihan fyysisiä kopioita elokuvista ja tämä oli toinen niistä. Oon mä tän joskus vuosia sitten katsonut, mutta onhan se nyt välillä hyvä verestää muistoja. Jostain syystä ei elokuvien katselu oikein kiinnosta harrastuksena näin vuonna 2017. Ajattelin että josko Syltty onnistuisi muuttamaan tuota tilannetta. En tiedä tekikö se niin... Olihan tää ihan hyvä, mutta ei mitenkään erityisen ihmeellinen. Tuo dramaattinen alkukohtauskin "

"Re-Watched 01/13/2017 Rating 7.0/10 Format: Blu Ray While its story is pretty average its cinematography sets it apart from other action movies from its time. I hadn't watched this movie in years but i was really surprised to see how much i ended up liking it despite its lukewarm score. "

An average movie

“By now, I must have seen most of the action flicks starring Sylvester Stallone and, to be honest, I think that most of them are pretty weak and boring but I have to admit that they are a few exceptions and this movie is definitely one of them. Indeed, I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released and, since then, it has always been one of my guilty pleasures. Indeed, I must have been about 13 years old at the time and I thought the whole thing was seriously entertaining. I mean, obviously, I have actually no knowledge about rock-climbing and, if someone would tell me that the whole thing was grossly inaccurate, I wouldn’t be surprised. Personally, probably because I’m afraid of heights, I have always been fascinated by movies dealing with rock-climbing and,” read more
