Pretty cool story of how that kid 15 years ago went up to Alaska with nothing but a backpack and rifle and walked into the Denali wilderness alone by Healy. Too bad it had to end like it did.

Too bad? What do you mean too bad? That was all his own fault. Now after this movie we're going to see thousands of idiots that will try and do the same thing he did. Then again, thats how we get rid of the weak.

Too bad you can't film it. I bet PPV would give you a lot of worthless dollars for the footage.

I read that book a year or so ago, and was yelling the whole time, "You stupid, stupid idiot! You deserve whatever comes your way!"

Luckily for the human race, he didn't reproduce (as far as I know).

Probably never. I wonder how long it'll be before they make the movie into a tv show?
