The Mountain Between Us product reviews

Golden Globe Winner Idris Elba and Oscar Winner Kate Winslet star in this sweeping suspenseful drama based on Charles Martin's novel.

When a plane they've chartered to beat a storm crashes in a remote mountain area, two strangers (Elba and Winslet) must trust each other in order to survive the extreme elements. With little hope of rescue they begin a perilous journey that will shape the course of their lives.

This would literally be one of my worst nightmares. Surviving a plane crash, in the middle of nowhere. No chance of any help finding you - unless its by one hell of a miracle as no flight plan was ever recorded, pilot is dead, no idea what direction to take, cell phones don't work and you have survived with a complete stranger and you are both hurt. Do you sit near the crash and prey that someone locates you or do you pick yourself up and carry your injured body with only the shear will of wanting to survive pushing you along. It is definitely a fascinating watch and leaves you wandering what would you do.

The location is beautiful and if you were not routing for the two actors to make it you would be in awe of the amazing landscape. The acting is just so believable. You are completely mesmerised by the whole thing. Its one of those movies that you become completely lost in and, surprisingly, the pace never lets up. Throw a dog into the mixture and you find your heart is breaking as each step they take gets them closer to survival

One thing that I was so impressed with is that instead of finishing once they have gotten to safety they continue the movie and the aftermath - I really was not expecting that. I assumed there would be a wedding and they would see each other and that would be it but instead it goes into their lives and shows how the crash has impacted them personally and shows how much they have changed. It has always fascinated me that one simple act can impact your life totally and in a year from now you are a completely different person. These two have changed so much and everything they had before the crash has now gone which shows just how precious life really is.

This movie definitely casts a spell over you and you are so involved with it that it is hard to come back to reality. It touches you in the heart strings and reminds you that anything is possible - that life really is worth fighting for and the need to survive is more important then anything else. That you need to face your fear head on - even though the odds are stacked against you and really the possibilities are next to none. A great movie!

Product reviews for listing 6836: The Guvnors
Directed by Gabe Turner

Product image for The GuvnorsA love letter and hate mail to the alpha male.

This story's alpha is Mitch who lives buried in suburban London, having turned his back on his previous life of casual violence and intimidation as part of a legendary South East London firm.

In the modern day he's the doyen of respectability and quiet confidence. The Guv'nors holds a mirror up to Mitch and shows him his inner monster once again, buried deep in both DNA and psyche, desperate to break out and wreak havoc.
