Goofs

Angel Falls is 3,212 feet (980 m) tall. Jumping from the top of the falls would kill a person. Due to the height of the fall a person would reach terminal velocity (130 miles per hour/209 kilometres per hour). The chance of surviving would be minuscule as at those speeds water won't compress. It would be like hitting a brick wall at 130mph/209kmph. You might be able to survive by pointing your toes and going straight in, but you would break every bone in your feet, legs, hips, and probably your back as it compresses. See more »

Impressive action sequences let down by almost everything else.
4 January 2016 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

A Gen Z update to Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 cult classic, this remake is essentially an episode of Fast and Furious in which the vehicular exploits have been replaced with an assortment of extreme sports sequences. Constructed with an alarming amount of real footage and physical stunt work, the numerous action set pieces are rather impressive; a high octane wing-suit gliding scene and the tension-building rock climbing finale topping the list. Yet the impact of these daredevil stunts is wasted on a film that fails on almost every other level. Stemming from Kurt Wimmer's truly awful screenplay, every second not spent traversing a mountainside, soaring through the air or surfing a mammoth wave is cringe worthy and/or yawn inducing. Wimmer's dialogue attempts to be philosophical and Zen-like, but with clichéd stinkers like "the only law is gravity" and "everyone dies, it's just a matter of how", it's nothing short of unintentionally hilarious. Replacing the eternally cool Patrick Swayze was always going to be tough, however Edgar Ramirez does a solid job as charismatic eco-warrior Bohdi. The same can't be said for low-budget-Chris-Hemsworth hunk Luke Bracey though, who is so wooden as Johnny Utah he makes Keanu Reeves look like Daniel Day Lewis. This modern update boasts a handful of genuinely fantastic action sequences, yet they're not enough to warrant a recommendation in what is otherwise a limp and incoherent thriller.
