Those Korean men must be the most emotional males on Earth! That's how
they are depicted in this Korean epic where just about every male actor
cries! It would come as no surprise if Kleenex had sponsored the film.
It's just a shame that these brave, intrepid explorers are reduced to a
quivering, sobbing mess as it undermines their courage and tenacity to
conquer mountains. If it's melodrama you want then this serves it up by
Hong-Gil Um (Jeong-min Hwang) and Moo-Taek Park (Jung Woo) first meet
in the early 1990s when they endure a grueling climb up Kanchenjunga,
the third highest mountain in the world. They become friends and later
that decade, become the 14th team to scale the Himalayas. However,
Hong-Gil is forced to retire after sustaining a serious injury. Several
years later, Hong-Gil is a renowned lecturer and Moo-Taek takes up an
assignment to climb Mount Everest. Disaster strikes and Hong-Gil must
come out of retirement to again face the challenges of the world's
This is probably Korean drama at its best but would be considered
excessive melodrama for English speaking audiences. The not-so- subtle
acting just doesn't cross the cultural divide. There's no doubting that
all the actors inject their emotions wholeheartedly into their roles
but a sobfest is not the answer. I wouldn't know how other moviegoers
reacted as I was the only person in the cinema. When the actors are not
crying uncontrollably, it's quite an enjoyable film. I just don't want
my emotions to be manipulated like this.
Although Sang-joon Hwang's music score is beautiful to listen to, it is
clear that it has been designed to contribute to the melodrama. On its
own, it's musical brilliance but when it is accompanied with the images
it is overly sympathetic and manipulative.
The cinematography, particularly of the mountainous regions, is grand
and spectacular. No expense has been spared in filming the climbs and
the outdoor locations. The visual and sound effects also bring to life
the treacherous conditions the climbers had to face.
Based on true events, "The Himalayas" wears its heart on its sleeve.
There's nothing wrong with that in small doses but when it's close to
two hours of everyone crying then it becomes repetitive. It is still an
enjoyable film at times that will be appreciated by those viewers who
are not fussed with excessive melodrama.
