The Mountain Between Us | Ratings & Reviews

"Do not go into this expecting a hardcore survival film. There are no grim musings on death (see: The Grey), no one is mauled by a bear (see: The Revenant), and Idris Elba and Kate Winslet don’t eat butts for breakfast (see: Alive). While it does have one hell of an exciting crash sequence, The Mountain Between Us keeps things fluffy for the most part. That may not bode well for survival genre enthusiast, but this film isn’t for you. It’s a love story first and foremost, doing a better job serving that crowd than most Nicholas Sparks bollocks adapted to screen."

"It's said you have a choice at a movie like The Mountain Between Us: Laugh at it or go with it. I don't see those two things as mutually exclusive. I laughed at it and enjoyed the hell out of it."


"A movie in which neither the subzero temperature nor the romantic heat penetrates more than skin deep."


"It's a Mills & Boon kind of set up, but Winslet in particular adds authenticity and gravitas."

Time OutTime Out

"Elba and Winslet give it their frowning and emoting best, getting actorishly in each other's eyelines. ... But I never fully believed in their danger or their emotional connection."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"With these stars, and in the hands of director Hany Abu-Assad, whose Paradise Now and Omar are genuine Middle-East thrillers, Mountain should have been much better."


"It's less a peaky blinder, more a Meh-ntain between us which emerges."


"Even though this particular story couldn't be more contrived, big stars have been making us invest in far-fetched emotional connections for as long as movies have been in existence."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"An easily digestible love story-cum-survival tale that tosses two excellent actors in the snow and lets them do their thing."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A passable but bland romantic drama…"


"Two compelling leads and a mix of adventure and romance. It's a pleasant experience, if not one that will linger long in the memory."
