(out of 5)

Great fun from Goldeneye director Martin Campbell that offers North American audiences another glimpse of Campbell’s Bond girl .  is a mountain climbing expert whose desire to conquer peaks is halted by his father’s accidental death somewhere in what looks like a simulated mountain climbing set stuck in the middle of Death Valley.   is the sister with whom he has a convoluted relationship following the tragedy; when she is stuck on top of K2 on a publicity trip with corporate megalomaniac billionaire  (see review for U-571) O’Donnell has to round up a crew of people to help rescue her. What seems like a run-of-the-mill, predictable action film actually is one, but the fantastic stunts, frenetic pace and very healthy sense of adventure make it fun.
