A father and his two teenage sons travel to a small mountain cabin for a male-bonding adventure. When a mysterious stranger arrives at the cabin, their outing turns into a struggle for survival.
Its hard to like a film that’s essentially too drab and depressing to offer much else. The High Frontier meets this definition with a cold unfriendly landscape and even colder, unfriendlier people.
Its hard to empathise with the main characters or even take much of an interest in this by the numbers thriller. Which, of course, is a second point of failure. This has all been done before and done better at that.
On the upside, the acting is solid, no bad b grade performances here but a better tale would have helped populated with more engaging, likeable, characters you can invest in and root for.
As it stands watchable but unremarkable.
