Despite the feature length and some stunning 3D photography this always feels like a TV documentary. The story of conquering Everest is interesting but this mixture of old, new and recreated footage is often confusing and, more significantly, misleading.
I had no idea if what I saw when (SPOILERS) they reach the top was even real, let alone Everest. Constantly questioning what you are seeing is more distracting the 3D retro fitted photographs used throughout.
