Summit Fever (2022)
Admittedly, the high stakes action and suspense that takes place during this final attempt at summiting is moderately fun, if not also a little bit depressing. Viewers will realize relatively quickly that the mountain does not care if the group lives or dies which feels like a pretty apt thing for a mountain to feel because you know, nature and Jack London and all of that stuff. However, what is problematic is that it takes over an hour for any of the really exciting parts of the film to happen so that by the time everyone is starting to suffer from third man syndrome, you may have already fallen asleep just like the hypothermic actors on screen.
