    This movie was a pleasant surprise... Kate Winslet & Idris Elba end up stranded on a snowy mountain in the middle of nowhere after a plane crash & have to help each other survive the icy conditions ... Of course there's alot more to it, but I'll say if you like movies like The Shallows or Castaway, you'll enjoy this one (in this case the bitter cold & mountains are the challenge versus sharks or a dessert island). The 4k transfer is rather breathtaking, with excellent detail throughout making for some pretty spectacular wintery scenes (great cinematography!). The 7.1 DTS HDMA sound is also excellent, with lots of realistic blustery wind effects pouring rain out of the rear speakers... All in all a pleasant way to spend a wintery night...

    The Mountain Between Us was excellent - and the price for a 4K Ultra HD copy at Best Buy made it a no-brainer. This movie was a perfect blend of adventure, suspense, drama, and an unexpected love story that did not detract from but moved the plot forward. Idris Elba is an undeniable talent - coming across as strong, intelligent, yet disarmingly sensitive and vulnerable. Kate Winslet was perfect as well in her role as a bride thwarted on her way to the altar by a plane crash - only to find sometimes our best laid plans aren't what God and fate have planned for us. Highly recommend this - works for date night as it has something for everyone.

    The Mountain Between Us is the story of two strangers who decide to share transportation after their planned flight gets cancelled due to weather conditions. When Alex Martin (Kate Winslet) asks Dr. Ben Bass (Idris Elba) to share a prop to get to their destinations instead of waiting out the storm, they think everything will be ok. No such luck because things go awry and the plane crashes killing the pilot and injuring Alex. In order to survive, Ben & Alex work together depending upon each other and fighting for their survival! This is truly a tear jerker, & a thrilling story of adventure!

    Ok, so before reading the review you should’ve already read what the story itself is, so I’m not going to cover that, all I’ll say about this movie is it’s not a waste of your time to watch, but it might not be worth your money. My recommendation would be to watch it on a movie channel you’re already paying for, or whenever it might eventually come on on regular TV, it’s just not good enough I can see a reason I should’ve spent money on it as I can’t see myself ever interested in seeing it again

    Great Movie & ending. Beau Bridges played a good supporting role as the pilot of the plane which crashes in the western US mountains. Movie was about the couple that survived the crash & were able to climb out of the crash site & get back to civilization. During this time their relationship developed into a nice love story. Would recommend this movie to young adults & adults as well.

    I thought this was going to be a thriller or survival story... It wasn't, it was a "love" story masquerading as a thrilling survival story. Very predictable back end to this story. The best thing going for it was the cinematography in the mountains. I thought Kate "Whines a Lot" (Titanic nickname!), was pretty good, but Idris is pretty one note ion most of all his movie performances.

    This movie is one of those that get you thinking about your own experience of flying in an airplane, Idris Elba is fantastic in the role and Kate Winslet is a feisty character that turns warm in the face of adversity. The cinematography is very cool, you should watch on a large screen if possible. The characters are believable and sincere overall very enjoyable film.

    I was reading the book before I purchased the BluRay movie and in the book it did not stated about the African American. I thought it was weird and wondered for awhile. In the actually movie, on the cover of the movie, there's a African american. I think I'm going to cheat a little bit watching the movie. I'm sure there's more detail in the book than watching it.
