Critic Reviews of "Beyond the Edge"Seattle TimesJuly 10, 2014
It's all rendered in 3D, with the archival footage reformatted; you'll feel the Everest chill and gape at the astonishing vistas.NPRJuly 03, 2014
Recalled in the somewhat breathless History Channel-style voice-overs of the participants and their families, the journey was a triumph of guts, perseverance, endurance, ingenuity and teamwork.New York TimesJuly 03, 2014
This absorbing account of the first recorded summit of the world's highest mountain is a rare documentary for which re-enactments make complete sense.Village VoiceJuly 02, 2014
Like a mountaineer grappling on sheet ice, the film's focus on performance can result in a loss of footing.New Zealand HeraldFebruary 28, 2017
Just as she did with her great The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls, director Leanne Pooley's work neatly refreshes our appreciation of a local legend.The Film StageJune 23, 2016
The recreations are excellent, right down the props, visual effects and costumes, unlike a great deal of History Channel documentaries.Eye for FilmMay 16, 2015
Pooley and cinematographer Richard Bluck bring the story to life - along with the vivid possibility of death -- and the big screen is the place to see it.FILMINK (Australia)October 16, 2014
Beyond The Edge brilliantly blends archival footage and reconstructions provide an engrossing, if sometimes dry, retelling of a breathtaking achievement.amNewYorkAugust 10, 2014
You can't help but wonder how much more someone like Werner Herzog could have done with the story.Tolucan TimesJuly 03, 2014
...cinematography is magnificent, the scenery stunningly beautiful, and the recreations are woven into the narrative so seamlessly that they are almost unnoticeable...one of the best mountain-climbing movies.Independent (UK)May 23, 2014
The film makes us admire him but there is little here of the excitement, pathos and despair that you find in the stories of climbers such as George Mallory and Joe Simpson.
