Love the acting and chemistry. Scenery is magnificent. Good movie to watch if you don’t want to overthink about details. Overall I love the dog :)

I haven't read the book (yet) but a recent viewing of the film made me put it on my ‘To Do’ list. The plot seemed plausible with one teensy exception - not only is one of the survivors a Surgeon (what luck for the more injured 2nd survivor) but obviously a former Boy Scout Extraordinaire, as there were plenty of scenes played around fireside settings and no obvious signs indicating the frustrations involved in building, igniting and maintaining thereof? Harking back to my own personal dismal fire-building exercises I could only assume that Kate Winslet was one very fortunate recipient both in warmth and medical aid. That aside, both actors were totally believable and the location/scenery was both majestic and menacing. I found I was sitting on the edge of my seat on several occasions.

Having not read the book, i thought it was a really good movie. Really liked the emotion you could feel from the charachters, beautiful scenery.

I had previously read the book, and was excited to see the movie. I was so disappointed! Only vaguely followed the plot of the book. Be sure and read the book however, it was excellent! The movie is not worth your time!

When a love story meets a survival story. Not bad, but unrealistic and as someone else mentioned, I don`t think the filmmaker has ever spent any time in the mountains as much of it was unbelievable. I love Idris Elba, but I didn`t feel like the two characters had all that much chemistry. Overall, it was more or less fluff.

Good actors, bad script. Made no sense. Filmmaker obviously has never spent serious time in the freezing cold. Ridiculous love scene. The dog was the best part of the movie.

Show what can happen when two people of other races realize they are close to death.

Good actors but the movie did not pick up, very predictable!

My father used to label these superfluous efforts as "chewing gum for the brain." Many of the critical comments below are bang on. But for a limp and a few bruises the lost trio looked well fed and groomed. The director (Hany Abu-Assad) seems to be more in his element with Palestinian freedom fighter and other assorted movies about terrorism. The Strathcona library still retains a copy of The Snow Walker which is similar in many ways to The Mountain Between Us though twice as realistic and intelligent. In signing off, one thing I will say is that Kate Winslet is still as beautiful as she was in Titanic so this reviewer allows one star for that!

If you have read the book, don't bother watching this movie. The book is excellent, the movie not worth your time.

Surprised that this quote from the book was left out the movie:
“... the mountain between us is one I cannot climb .”
===
We can go three weeks without food, three days without water, and three hours without shelter.
===
I owe you an apology. I did find that beacon. I saw it. It was smashed to pieces.
-No, you didn't know that when you came looking for me, did you?
===
If we stay here we're safe. If we leave, search and rescue, they're less likely to find us.
-Look, I don't want to die up here because you're too scared to take a risk. We have to do something.
===
Ben... do you actually know what it means to be reckless? It means to abandon safety.
- I know exactly what it means, Alex. And sometimes... But right now... Right now, we don't have a choice, okay? Nobody knows where we are. You know, all we have is me and you.
===
And the heart is just a muscle. Right?
-What idiot said that?
