When two different climbing parties set out on the expedition of their lives, they knew there would be dangers; however, no-one could prepare them for the tragedy that was in store. Reaching the summit of Mount Everest in Nepal is every passionate climbers dream, but this isn't a trip to take lightly. Such altitudes and temperatures are not meant to be experienced by human beings as frostbite and altitude sickness are almost inevitable perils, not to mention falling, strong winds and, of course, avalanches. As fate would have it, these climbers are about to run into one of the worst snowstorms ever documented as an earthquake hits the nation and mother nature has no mercy. Victory turns to catastrophe in an event that will change the lives of the survivors.

Some people get a once in a lifetime chance to make history. Some people, unfortunately end fining themselves part of events that live in infamy. Such is the story of the people who attempted to climb the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, in 1996. Their story would later be referred to as the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, as two competing expeditions were caught on the mountain by a horrific storm, leading to the most terrifying events on the mountain until that point. This is the story of those climbers.

Jennifer Preston is a journalist hoping to get to the bottom of a tragic explosion that occurred in a nightclub on New Year's Eve a month previously; a disaster that killed over 230 people and caused toxic waste from an underground weapons facility to spread five square miles into the city. A large portion of the city is now under strict quarantine; no-one is allowed in or out. The only problem is, a strange phenomenon has taken a hold of those within the quarantine zone spreading horror and violence throughout. Preston and her bereaved detective friend Levis Mathis are determined to discover the root of the explosion, especially since the latter lost his daughter to the blast, but the authorities aren't prepared to help them. And time is running out as they begin to find themselves affected by the dark happenings.

For what's clearly trying to be a bad-mannered sex comedy, there's nothing particularly rude or funny here. This is mainly because the central character is both unlikeable and hard to believe. And also because this British movie reveals its moralistic intentions as the story develops from one contrived scene to the next. Thanks to the cast there are moments of wit here and there, but all of them are undermined by the uneven tone.
At the centre of the mayhem is Frank (Jason Durr), who runs a sex-toy company with his pal Bill (Nick Moran). Business is good, and life is a series of drunken parties populated with curvy women. Fed up with his refusal to grow up, Frank's estranged wife Rachel (Orla O'Rourke) talks their doctor into giving Frank a fake diagnosis to shake him up. Now believing that he has a fatal heart condition, Frank suddenly decides that he needs to get his life in order, clean up his professional life and bond with his 15-year-old son Sam (Dylan Llewellyn) on a series of days out. He also decides to help Sam get the girl (Poppy Drayton) he has his eye on.
The most annoying thing about this underdeveloped script is the way it portrays Frank as such an idiot that he never asks a single pertinent question about his condition, including treatment options and a second opinion. And yet Frank upends everything in an effort to change. This is so ludicrously implausible that it highlights the other contrivances in the script, most pointedly how Bill has managed to create such a successful company when he knows absolutely nothing about women or sex. None of this is the fault of the actors; both Durr and Moran have plenty of charm, but the misogynistic characters they play simply never feel like real human beings.

It's World War II and things are looking bleak as the allies struggle to decipher the Germans' ingenious Enigma Code; a puzzle that could bring an immediate end to the war with all their movements quickly surfacing. Unfortunately, their enigma seems to be nearly impossible, at least until the British government enlist the help of gifted university graduate Alan Turing, whose remarkable ability for solving problems has eluded no-one. With the help of a tireless team, Turing sets about developing a top secret machine with the ability to find and eliminate all possible sequences with the speed and efficiency that would be impossible just using a human brain. When it seems he indeed has managed to make a breakthrough, discoveries about his personal life put him in danger of the very people he was trying to help.
