Hang On - Thrills and avalanches in high above Rocky Mountains. Cliffhanger is one of my personal favorite action films from Sylvester Stallone from the 90's. This is one of the best action-adventure films that is set in Rocky Mountains. I love, love this film to death. This film was filmed and set in a real Rocky Mountains and the mountains were filmed in Italy. They don't make movies like this anymore. I love the fact that they were real mountains not CGI, the effects are done for real and they are practical. The film is rated R, it has thrills, action and men faces nature. You see snow, mountains, good acting performances from the cast and the director. Everyone did a 100% of them self's in this movie. A real stuntman was paid one million dollars to cross once between two planes at fifteen thousand feet, without the aid of any safety devices or trick photography. I would put this movie right between Rocky and Rambo because it is so good action movie ever. It was directed by Renny Harlin who directed A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, Die Hard 2, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Deep Blue Sea, Mindhunters and Skiptrace. Cliffhanger is my favorite Renny Harlin film. He did a great job directing this film. This is "Die Hard" in Rocky Mountains - A group of criminals thieves makes an air heist on an airplane in which results three suitcases $100,000,000 in cash being been lost the Rocky Mountains. Now a group of criminals calls rescue team for help. When 2 search and rescue mountain climbers respond Gabe and Hal, they become trapped and hostages in in a search for three bags. Gabe walker (Sylvester Stallone) is trapped himself in a desperate battle against ruthless criminals and unforgiving nature. The stunt effects were crazy and insane but Sylvester Stallone did all practical stunts him self, I love his character Gabe Walker. It is my favorite character that Stallone ever played. In this movie he is not a soldier "Vietnam Vet" or a Cop he is a rescue climber a normal person who instead muscles, guns, knives uses his wisdom and his brain to stop the thieves and kidnappers who kidnapped his best friend. I watched this movie 3 years ago with my dad on TV many times even my dad loved the film that time. I really want to say personal thanks to Sylvester Stallone for making this movie. Thank you Sly for this movie I enjoy it, It is a fun too see this film. John Lithgow as Eric Qualen is fantastic villain, I enjoy his performance. I love, love Caroline Goodall as Kristel I love the actress she was great. I love Michael Rooker as Hal Tucker Gabe's best friend who becomes a hostage and Gabe does everything in his power to save him. He couldn't save Sarah (Michelle Joyner) Hal's girlfriend but now he is trying to save his best friend. Janine Turner as Jesse was excellent as Jesse Gabe's girlfriend. You have Leon who play's another bad guy. Rex Linn is Richard Travers FBI agent who goes rouge I enjoy his performance in this movie. Rambo films: Rambo: First Blood Part II and First Blood are my top 2 favorite action films of all time, Cobra, Rocky films, Demolition Man are really my all time favorite Stallone films. I am huge Stallone fan he is my number 1 favorite action star of all time. So I have too talk about Cliffhanger because why I think it is so good. It come out in 1993 the same year Jurassic Park come out, Hard Target, The Fugitive, Judgment Night and more. It earn 3 Oscars and it was hit in a worldwide the movie was also in in movie theater I wish I could see this movie in movie theater. My favorite scenes in the film is on the bridge in which Gabe and Jesse find a C4 Plastic explosives set on a bridge and Gabe trigger the trap like in Rambo and they both run and the bridge explodes. Practical effects all done for real it is excellent. One of my favorite scenes is in the cave in which Gabe and Jesse cross the path with bats. I love the fight between Gabe and Kynette (Leon) it feels the death in this movie is more a slasher film. A beautiful music score from Trevor Jones I love the music score. You also have Paul Winfield and Bruce McGill as cameo role in this movie. Ralph Waite who plays Frank R.I.P. was really decent actor and I love his character to death I really feel bad for him. My favorite personal action film call it what you want I love Sylvester Stallone to death and Cliffhanger to death his best action movie he ever did.
