Atom User Reviews for The Dawn Wall (2018)
Best movie i have seen since Meru!!
You don’t have to be a rock climbing fan to enjoy this amazing true story of conquering your dreams! Fantastic film, very engaging!
Loved the movie from start to finish. It was great how they wove in the back stories. Sitting in the meadow watching the climbers on El Cap has always been one of my favorite things to do in Yosemite. After seeing this movie it will make it even more special to do.
Film was not compatible with projection equipment in Hooksett, NH. Film was well made, but I drove over an hour to this theater to see a crappy quality projection. Big screen would have been nice, but I have better screen resolution on my iPad. Test your equipment before you sell tickets!
Great film. Now I want to reach the book Push too!
Love it amazing movie !
Beautifully inspiring! How it highlights not only the most ambitious of climbs and overcoming adversity, but also life and relationships really makes this hit on many levels. Very well done and an incredible story!
The movie was terrible quality was glitches and had green stripes along the whole movie. The whole movie. Hooksette imax honestly drove 1.5 hours to watch a horrible quality movie.
Make sure to stay after the credits there is another 20+ minutes of action. My husband climbed of few of the routes in his younger days that are shown in this film. I loved getting a better understanding of what he did and of course he loved it. We were both spellbound the entire film.
Incredibly well done movie of outstanding story of struggle, commitment, perseverance and teamwork!
That’s a real man, and a great friendship.
It feels like you're right there with Tommy and Kevin through their endeavors.
Awe inspiring film. We all left dreaming of becoming the next Tommy Caldwell or KJ. You’re the best of us, fellas!
I read the book and couldn't wait for the film. Was not disappointed. What Tommy and Kevin did will forever remain one of the most impossibly incredible feats in all of sports.
Such an amazing story highlighting some of the best athletes on earth!
Great movie. You know how it ends, but now you get to see how it happened along with the struggle and emotion.
Stuffed with drama, both climbing-related and not.
It's the camerawork by director of photography Brett Lowell and cinematographer Corey Rich (along with many other contributors) that impresses the most here. Close-ups show just how precise and physically challenging the climbers' moves are.
While The Dawn Wall brings you up close to the miraculous feat of Caldwell and Jorgeson, the backstory (particularly of Caldwell) is just as amazing.
