They say air gets pretty thin at 24,000 feet. Your heart and lungs can’t function properly, and your brain doesn’t get enough oxygen.
Apparently Robert King wrote this script for Vertical Limit (splurge on the better Special Edition) at that altitude. It’s that stupid. This cliche-ridden actioner has exactly two things going for it: visual splendor and cool special effects (but not enough of the latter). If you’ve seen the promotional trailer, you’ve seen the best the movie has to offer.
