While the newer remake is undoubtedly more dramatic and realistic, this film has something. The final moments are a little disappointing, to have made the journey that far and then fall. Most 'unbelievable' was the self sacrifice of the priest; I would have thought he would at least try to save himself for the benefit of the group
