Reviews

Colin Wells, Climb Magazine -- "US climber-filmmaker Peter Mortimer's often-astonishing film undoubtedly represents the film of 2005. Mortimer is the man to catch; Return2Sender shows he's on fire."

Alison Osius, Rock and Ice Magazine –“This is one of the best climbing films ever made, and for reasons that go beyond the climbing. O’Neill’s antics throughout pull it all together. Mortimer’s editing and direction provide terrific changing perspectives, and the ultimate insider’s point of view. R2S made me want to go climbing.”

Mike Brooks, FrontRangeBouldering.com – "...some of the greatest, most gripping climbing footage I have ever seen... The routes climbed were so wickedly bold and gnarly that I actually found watching the footage to be physically stressful. I was genuinely scared at times. Mortimer is brilliant at placing the viewer right up close and personal on sick routes..."

Barry Corbett Film Festival– “Return2Sender: Parellelojams, an exciting and hilarious look at desert crack climbing at its best, solidifies Mortimer's reputation as the best young climbing cinematographer in America today."

lisaeGreat!

Voted 5/5

Parellelojams was amazing! I've seen it twice now, without being at all bored.

rpcAnnoying

Voted 4/5

Never quite got thru. that segment on that little brat bouldering - somehow it is able to annoy and bore the shit out of me all at the same time!

Rest of it is very good, esp. the parallelojams part. Though I was disappointed to see that they did not do Liquid Sky on the roped climb of N6shooter.

asaking11Awesome!

Voted 4/5

This movie was great, I loved the parallelojams segment. This movie also inspired me to start slacklining. The kid and the prego chick were really annoying, other then that the movie rocks.
