Consensus: Steep is a mixed bag of breathtaking mountain footage and yawn-inducing banter.

A tedious movie about excitement.

Steep is a throwback to the early days of movies when the sight of things in motion was a thrill in itself. Seeing leaves rustling in the wind or waves on the sea was a marvel.

While it desperately wants to crossover to a mainstream audience, it is what it is: a movie for skiers.

As enchanting as all this alpine footage can be, as a movie, Steep is flat.

Steep is one of those rare endeavors able to touch on the human condition without neglecting the film's true star: big-mountain skiing.

Steep is more promo-reel than documentary.

Sometimes it takes escaping death to feel alive -- especially if we have survived a cancer scare, a road accident or some other potentially fatal encounter. But Steep is about those who actively seek that dance with danger.

Obenhaus's movie certainly contains a lot of spectacular photography.

Catch this on an IMAX screen if you're interested, but for a great movie about mountain-based triumphs of the human spirit check out the inspirational Blindsight instead.
