Editorial reviews

"...CLIFFHANGER lives up to is title as a two-hour rollercoaster ride that never stops from first minute to last. A high-octane action suspenser with thrilling vertiginous footage unlike anything seen before in a feature..."
Variety - Todd McCarthy (05/24/1993)

"...It is one of the achievements of the movie to convince us that Lithgow and Stallone are a good match....Many of the most hazardous stunts in this movie were obviously not faked..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (05/28/1993)

"...The special effects seen here are as perfect and hard-won as Stallone's musculature, and that's saying a lot..."
New York Times - Janet Maslin (05/28/1993)

Acrophobia anyone?

Once the action began, Cliffhanger kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole viewing. Although not a huge fan, I really enjoyed this film as well as my other Stallone favorite, First Blood. Co-starring John Lithgow, who plays a serious sinister role, Cliffhanger gives the viewer a unique panorama of the Rocky Mountains. Not prone to acrophobia, I found my stomach churning in fear around every corner. Apparently the movie was good enough to be nominated for 3 Oscars as well as 7 other nominations. This DVD is now in my personal collection and enjoy an occasional additional look--definitely worth watching.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

While not an all time classic, Cliffhanger is one of the better action movies of the 1990's and probably Stallone's last great action flick (along with "Demolition Man") before taking a long break from the genre for what seemed like years. Okay, not so much a break but lets face it, "Assassins" "Judge Dredd" and "The Specialist" were not the high points of Sly's carreer.

So in this one a mid air heist goes wrong and suitcases of money are dropped on random mountain tops. Enter Gabe Walker (Stallone) who is back visiting his ex-girlfriend and old friend for the first time in a year since a terrible accident where his best friends girl was killed while Gabe tried (and failed) to save her. Gabe and Hal (the former best friend, he still blames Gabe for the death of his girl) are grabbed by the bad guys to track down the suitcases full of cash. After disposing of Gabe (or so the bad guys think) he teams up with his old flame Jessie to try and grab the cases of money before the baddies can.

With lots of action and suspense, this was director Renny Harlin's last big movie before he almost made career suicide by directing the bomb "Cutthroat Island" (and killing a production company in the process) If you are a fan of Stallone, you should not hesitate to grab this one as it is one of his better movies, heck if you like explosions, action and some bad one liners, this should be right up your alley too. Oh yeah, and lets not forget John Lithgow as the bad guy who plays the role in the same way Alan Rickman did in "Die Hard" smart, witty and self obsessed. He steals the show from Stallone.

Stallone On The Edge

Cliffhanger was a 1994 comeback of sorts for action hero Sylvester Stallone, best and one of the scariest movie moments all time The opening scene of a climber falling to her death without being rescued by Gabe Walker (Sylvester Stallone.

A++++++ seller! would do business with again!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This blu ray of Cliffhanger is awesome. The picture quality is amazing with plenty of shots of the mountains covered in snow. Sound is also great with plenty of explosions and a cool soundtrack that sound amzaing with the home theater system. The best part is that this action movie still holds up after 20 years! Its a buy
