A National Geographic made movie which is both exhilarating and scary at the same time. Not your traditional movie but based on the dream of Alex Honnold, who wanted to climb one of the most challenging rock faces in the world the 3,000ft plus El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, free of a rope. It is probably one of the best movies I have seen in years and even though you know the end result you are on the edge of you seat the whole time, heart beating at the incredibly challenge ahead.
Interesting character but then to attempt such a challenge I guess you need to be. The filming itself was incredibly and you really feel you are in there in the middle of the action, especially watching him practice the climb with ropes and map out his journey to the top. The cinema was full and everyone was gripped by what was on the screen and remain captivated through to the end. The physical and mental strength required for this climb was amazing.
It is certainly one that I will watch again soon, if you haven’t seen it go along and watch it now. Trailer is here and definitely a 10/10 for this one.by
