The high-altitude thriller "Everest," which opened the Venice Film Festival Wednesday, should warn people off climbing.Rival commercial climbing teams, who charged as much as $65,000 a head to take people to Everest's summit, got caught in a thunderstorm. Two of the team leaders, American Scott Fischer played by Gyllenhaal, and New Zealander Rob Hall, played by Clarke, were among the victims.Brolin plays the gruff Texas pathologist Beck Weathers, who had been left for dead in the snow when rescuers could not rouse him.The film makes clear that there is nothing glorious about the bravado of many who make the commercial treks to the top of Everest.
