    This is a beautiful, perfect documentary. Having been around climbers and hikers and bouldering pioneers and having climbed many peaks in California, this really captured the story well and the challenge of free climbing El Capitan.

    A good documentary does its best to recreate a time and place and let the audience relive a thing that happened and this was one of the few films that truly captured the feeling. By the end on the big climb, I was on…

    I don’t follow comics so I go into Marvel movies cold, and it’s rare for their movies to feel fully fleshed out even if you’ve never read a comic about it. 

    I’d say this is easily the most entertaining of them all. Great story from beginning to end, beautiful set design, and a stellar cast. I’ve previously enjoyed the Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America and some of the Ironman films, and Thor Ragnorok was the funniest but Black panther surpassed them all.

    A good film that captured the risk inherent in such a mission. 

    The constant use of shaky camera to make scenes feel visceral got really old really fast.
