The Mountain Between Us – Spoiler Free Review!

A must see for Idris Elba fans….

The Movie

I’m recently back from the cinema for a girly night to see the  Survival/Action/Romance movie “The Mountain Between Us” based on the novel  by Charles Martin.(  If you haven’t seen the trailers, you can expect a plane crash and ensuing fight for survival in the wilderness of Idaho.

The Cast

The lead roles in this movie are played by the amazing duo of Idris Elba (Luther, Mandela, Prometheus)  and Kate Winslet (star of that little known movie Titanic aswell as The Dressmaker and The Divergent series to name just a few). Oh and a golden Labrador – name and past acting history unknown lol.

Worth Watching?

A good movie but if you are looking for an edge of your seat, action packed survival drama – then this movie is not for you.

However, if you want to watch a good but slow burning movie with a touch of romance (plus some eye candy in the form of the handsome Idris Elba) then this could be the perfect movie for you.  I don’t think you would be disappointed but maybe wait until it comes out on DVD.  I also recommend that you think about reading the book before you see it, I have a feeling that the book would have been better.



Loulou and Mo rate this movie 3.5 out of 5
