"Vertical Limit" (2000) is an action movie/thriller directed by New Zealander Martin Campbell ("GoldenEye", "Casino Royale", "The Mask of Zorro") starring, among others, Chris O'Donnell, Bill Paxton, Robin Tunney and Scott Glenn.

Plot

The film narrates the attempted ascent of K2 by a group of alpinists, led by an ambitious billionaire. But the climbing party gets into serious jeopardy after an avalanche occurs, killing some of the members and trapping others inside a crevasse. At the base, a team is formed to rescue their buried teammates. The undertaking soon becomes a race against time as the victims run out of supplies and medicine against altitude sickness.
