“Life is fleeting. Life is short, too short. So you gotta use every moment. You have to do something that makes you feel alive, and that sh*t, that would spread that message far and wide.” – Becky

Brief Synopsis – A year after a tragedy, a woman tries to overcome her fear of heights by climbing an abandoned radio tower with her best friend.
My Take on it – Great idea that works well even if it is far from perfect.
They find some intriguing ways to keep things quite thrilling and the story has some great twists and turns that keep changing the way the story unfolds.
There are some plot points that are a bit too far fetched, but they still let the story move along in a satisfying way.
Desppite the premise needed it, the characters aren’t developed well enough and they feel a bit too superficial for the way that things should have been.
The dialogue is also done well and it is used very effectively as a way to help the story and plot move forward.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The film’s original dialogue that included over 30 “f-bombs” was dubbed out to make this a PG-13 film once Lionsgate picked up the rights to the film. This was done using an AI dubbing technology system that alters onscreen mouth movements. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)

We went to see this at the theater (at my suggestion), and we barely made it through the film based on camera angles and fear of heights. I enjoyed it and have found it online to watch it two more times (It’s not as scary on an iPad screen), haha! I’d love to buy it so I can watch it anytime.
