/ A lonely place to die
Plus the two guilty parties clams to be 'the best' and lecture others on having to 'up your game if you wanna climb with me' , complacencys a killer etc
"Traveling light today, don't need helmets" but took spades?
Watch the DVD extras, far the best extras i've seen in a while
You've not seen the Men in Black documentary series then, pal? Huh?
p.s. what is 'A lonely place to die'? Film?
YEs, brit flick, low budget but filmed in glen coe so worth a watch. Ignore the climbing technical mistakes and its not a bad film
OK. Caught up. A film.
Quote - Trivia: Director Julian Gilbey and brother Will who co-wrote the script became avid and experienced climbers to make this film
No, no - I enjoyed the climbing bits. It was everything that happened after that I didn't like. Good plot, good scenery but somehow just rubbish and disappointing.
However I think I saw one let go off the rope while abbing, can't recall seeing a prusik or anything.
Really enjoyed the film.
Utterly disappointing film.
Other than the usual epic shots of the Buachaille in the first 15 mins, there isnt much to the film. the story is half decent at best, the acting is decent(only because Melissa George is hot, and i like the dude from Waterloo Road), but there are so many plot/location holes that it became very irritating very quickly.
not as bad as "blue water" though ,about a couple who were eventually eaten by sharks,shame they werent eaten in the first five minutes of the film having to suffer two hours in the cinema.
Thats the way I heard it at the time anyhow :-)
They don't lock the doors, you know!

The trip to the Alps? Excellent viewing.
Interesting how nobody comments on Scottish streams being about 8-10m deep and easily swimmable (no undercurrents or turbulence or turbidity) with visibility so perfect that without goggles or mask, someone can locate two different submerged persons and tell the difference between the one that's been shot and the one that's only knocked out.
The film actually picks up when they get into town and the dialogue improves. The full dialogue scene in the pub with the main assassin/kidnapper, is very well acted. And the police station waiting room scene was genuinely tense.
As for the climbing - there was about 7 minutes of climbing footage and 80% of it was totally wrong.
I remember the UKC forums being full of people wetting themselves with anticipation before it came out. Ha ha haa!
