Uneven - sometimes exhilarating, sometimes boring

My husband and I watched this movie with our 10 & 12 yo sons. They are avid skiers and love mountains so I thought they would love this movie. But while the cinematography and music were exquisite throughout, the storyline was uneven. The scenes showing extreme athletes climbing, skiing, biking, etc. held my family's interest. But the scenes with just the panoramas and narration lost their attention. I counted 7 yawns from my sons in the final 10 mins. It is a beautiful film though and I'm glad we watched it together.
