THE CLIMBERS is a cinematic retelling of the first Chinese climbers to summit Mount Everest - the first ever to do so from the North Ridge. Well-known as the most challenging side of the mountain, the perilous journey takes its toll on the mountaineers, physically and mentally, forcing them to make life or death decisions at every turn.

The 5.1 Mandarin track is a great mix for this film. The wind whips all around the listener, and the bass shakes you to core with thundering mountain winds and crashing snowfalls. The dialogue and music come in crystal clear through the front channels.
| Overall Reaction |
The film focuses on the 1960 expedition climbers who were crowned as heroes. The Climbers” is an popcorn action movie and is overall a fun movie. Definitely give it a watch. Recommended!
