Despite the fact that this film is absurd, "Cliffhanger" is action-filled, suspenseful and exciting. Sylvester Stallone plays a Rocky Mountain Rescue employee, who previously withdrew himself from the business, briefly returns for one last rescue. Little does he know, the group of travelers in distress are really violent terrorists who just lost millions of dollars in briefcases that are scattered across the terrain. It makes fine entertainment for action lovers, but the inept plot is unforgivable.
