Review

This entry in the survival genre about two 20-something friends who decide to climb a 600-metre tall desolate broadcast tower in an American desert does revisit a few genre cliches on its way to a rather predictable ending, but the director Scott Mann creates segments so atmospheric and shoots images so breathtaking that you're guaranteed to be intensely affected by them, regardless of your degree of acrophobia. The girls' climb to and predicaments at the top of the tower is a wonderful achievement in movie craftsmanship and old-fashioned film tricks in which every image is charged with a lot more tension and tangibility than overdone CGI will ever be able to do.
