4.0 out of 5 stars A ripping Yarn, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Dyatlov Pass Incident [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
For those people who already know about this strange and totally engrossing true-life mystery no explanantion is needed here, but for those who do not l would reccomend a look at the many vids on Youtube to get at the 'facts' as reported at the time in the Russian and world Press and the one or two fascinating pod cast debates also on youtube exploring the mystery and the current theories as to what exactly did happen to the tragic 9 ski-hikers up there in the Ural Mountains in February 1959.

Having come at this film with a well-informed, fascinated interest in the subject l was expecting to be a little let-down by this kind of film (as usual) - and this coupled to my over 50 years old loathing of teenagers in peril with sex and screaming as the bye-line,I sat down in the dark with my popcorn and partner and waited to fall asleep or chuck said pop-corn at the tv within the first 10 minutes...
But no!
I found myself only slightly edgy in those first 10 minutes but the film immediately offered us the reasons why this new group of younglings were headed to the 'Mountain of the Dead' and it allowed the true story to be the thrust of the film-so l settled down.
Everything about the film was about the Dyatlov Incident and gave us the real 'facts' blow for blow- which was a relief.

The film also allowed itself to develop certain conspiracy theories and not rule out any of them!
The actors were pretty good-especially their American accents (they were mostly Young English actors!)and they served the plot well.

I was not expecting to be entertained, informed AND given a great Twist at the end- which invoked a good after-film conversation with the partner - so a good evening was actually had- all in all well worth it.
