Being a climber, I loved seeing an original climbing movie as well as seeing Alex perform. Unreal

Very intense film, my hands were sweating the whole time watching Alex’s ascent. Overall, I think the was an excellent film, the cinematography was exceptional, seeing the real life struggle of his loved ones was riveting, but also the understanding not to interfere with his dreams.

intense and true. Only possible to watch because we know Alex succeeded. OK to have this spoiler.

This movie shows the ability that mankind has for the impossible. With that it shows the true nature of a person to make these things happen. I would suggest this movie to anyone.

Beautiful film that also goes into the heavy subject of risk in rock climbing. The beginning part can be a little slow but it picks right up.

Def a must see. The climb will have you uncomfortable in your seat. I don’t know if I could have watched it if it was in IMAX.

My palms were sweating just watching it. Filmed very well, with just enough content for me.

The result is a documentary that’s fascinated with its subject without being reverent, one that’s beautifully photographed (the way that Vasarhelyi and Chin capture the scale of Honnold’s climb is stunning) without ignoring the horrifying consequences lurking if he fails.

Free Solo would be an exceptional piece of filmmaking if it confined itself to the physical poetry of Mr. Honnold’s achievements. But it gets at his inner life too, and goes a long way toward answering the unspoken question of what makes — or allows — him to do what he does.

This is in many ways a white-knuckle brand extension for Honnold above all else. Still, the film frequently treads into knotty territory.
