One of the most thrilling IMAX films, Everest documents a disastrous attempt to climb Mount Everest and comes to DVD with a standard full-frame 1.33:1 image. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.0. There are no subtitles on this release. Supplemental materials include a "making of" featurette, a 3-D map of Everest, deleted scenes, and extensive background information on the climbers in the film. The breathtaking story and images make this disc interesting viewing for just about any DVD fan, but aficionados of outdoors and survival programs will get a special thrill from this release.

Absolutely stunning film.

The producers took incredible footage of an amazing event and somehow created a pathetic film. It is incredibly slow, boring, and repetitive. I love the mountains and any adventure story, but this was a waste of money and I will never watch it again.
