Critic Reviews of "The Mountain Between Us"
Chicago ReaderOctober 19, 2017
I was surprised by the film's shift from adventure story to romantic melodrama, and yet the turn feels natural. Everyday life more often resembles a melodrama than an adventure story.
The New RepublicOctober 12, 2017
The Mountain Between Us fails almost exclusively because of Kate Winslet. It's a case of good actress in the wrong film, playing across a good leading man who just doesn't resonate on her frequency.
Tribune News ServiceOctober 06, 2017
The romantic fantasy tendencies hijack this otherwise interesting unconventional love story in order to become a sort of bizarre Idris Elba fan fiction.
The AtlanticOctober 06, 2017
Skip The Mountain Between Us. If you're in the mood to be cloyed, watch a Hallmark movie instead.
New York ObserverOctober 06, 2017
Labored and boring, The Mountain Between Us is a soap opera in the snow that fritters away the time and talents of Kate Winslet and Idris Elba for all the wrong reasons.
Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 06, 2017
At one point you almost start rooting for the elements to win out, just so these two [characters] would just shut up.

Come for the love story, stay for the dog.
Reel Film ReviewsNovember 11, 2017
...one can't help but wonder if the fairly ludicrous storyline worked better on the page. (It surely had to, right?)
Concrete PlaygroundNovember 07, 2017
As much as the actors do with the material, however, they can't quite lift the film beyond standard sappy romance territory.
The New Paper (Singapore)November 02, 2017
The idea of pairing Winslet with Elba certainly is attractive. Being acclaimed actors, you know they can make anything work. They definitely give their all, even though the plot treads on thin ice when it cannot decide which genre it wants to be in.
ClarínNovember 01, 2017
The chemistry between Idris Elba and Kate Winslet is impeccable... [Full review in Spanish]
Alternate EndingOctober 31, 2017
A cursory thriller and unconvincing melodrama wedged together with nothing but some lovely landscape photography to give it any meaning at all.
