The Mountain Between Us. Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Dermot Mulroney, Beau Bridges, Linda Sorensen, Vincent Gale, Marci T. House.

The Mountain Between Us is such that at times what we perceive is heroic and noble in ourselves can be considered as weak and ineffective by others. Our stance in the wake of calamity is not defined by what we were but who we are shown to be when the ordeal is over. It is a reminder that what stands between the mountains is not space or the yawning chasm but the chance to grow beyond what is real at the time.

Corruption is one in which no one can truly escape unless they have found a way to shelter from the storm of everyday and the lure of greed and fear; everybody has a weakness, everybody has a secret in which they can be pushed to the point of crossing their own line of decency. It is a decency that unfortunately is missing in the film Triple 9.

There is nothing like watching elegant revenge on the big screen to stir the soul into believing that those who were mistreated by society will ultimately walk away with their heads held high and in fashionable taste.

There are films in which the abundance of talent on offer simply overwhelms the story line, the procession of acting nobility so engulfing, so crushing, that the film dies a thousand scripted deaths; it never truly lives up to the dignity envisioned off screen and the grace offered in the initial stages of casting. Thankfully this is not the issue when it comes to A Little Chaos.
