QUESTION: What is the best height-mare movie?

Tell us what you think is the best movie which involves heights. Many films involve heights at some point throughout it but other solely rely on the use of heights to drive the story. Which is the best film that involves height then? I'll give five below but let me know others.

CLIFFHANGER - Sylvester Stallone finds himself dangling off a snowy mountain in search of suitcases full of cash.

JURASSIC PARK - A few times we see Sam Neill and the children up high in the trees. Also that T-Rex is pretty tall.

KING KONG - One giant monkey and a T-Rex fighting! Naomi Watts in King Kong's hand on top of the Empire State Building.

VERTICAL LIMIT - Chris O'Donnell battles the heights of K2 on route to rescue his buried sister.

VERTIGO - James Stewart suffers a serious case of Vertigo as he follows an old friends wife.

What do you think?

  1. Vertigo is a Hitchcock classic. Cliffhanger is a brilliant action movie. The inclusion of King Kong and Jurrasic are abit tenuous though. Great monster movies yeah.

    To pick a favourite though, I'd have to go for Cliffhanger just on th basis of John Lithgoe's British accent. "Season's over asshole!"
