This documentary is about a group of friends who walk from Yosimite to Mt. Whitney along the John Muir Trail. To me, the reason to hike is to enjoy the solitude...the peace and quiet of the great outdoors. Because of this, it really makes watching this documentary difficult, as it is NEVER quiet...never. Instead of focusing on the glorious natural settings, the film always goes back to the relatively uninteresting group of friends so they can talk...and talk...and talk. It reminds me of most every reality TV show where the camera MUST periodically come back to the 'stars' to hear their thoughts about the trek--even if these thoughts are mostly irrelevant. In hindsight, I would have MUCH rather seen a ton of footage with only minimal narration to let you know what you're seeing. Plus, isn't it better to just get out and hike instead of watching people hike (a little) and talk a lot? A boring and rather pointless and thoroughly pretentious and self-absorbed film that folks either adore or totally hate....as you can tell if you read through the reviews. I am somewhat in the middle. I'd give the footage an 8 and everything else a 1...and an overall score of 3. Believe me, among those who didn't enjoy it, a 3 is VERY positive and I don't use the unnecessarily abusive and anti-rich people comments some used in describing and attacking this movie.

I cannot see why you'd get out in the middle of no where and focus mostly on people instead of the gorgeous setting.Reviewed byMartinHaferVote: 3/10
I've hiked the JMT for years, usually as a solo but sometimes ingroups. This movie is very true to the crazy, collective experience ofthe trail. It catches the exhaustion, the exhilaration, the inevitableproblems that arise, the feeling that the trail is going on forever.Every JMT hiker who has seen it has been very, very impressed with howwell the experience has been captured.
I am not the movie expert that many reviewers here are, but I at leastthink it holds its own as a documentary. Good humor, great visuals, andthe sound recording is awesome and really adds to the film. I boughtthe DVD after viewing the film in a preview session and I plan to showit to anyone who asks me about the experience.
I first heard about Mile...Mile & A Half on Facebook. They had ascreening in San Diego in August 2013! What an amazing movie by someamazing people. My wife and I just got married in July 2013 and The JMTis our honeymoon for June/July 2014! This movie just made us moreexcited than we were. Such a beautiful movie, well put together, andabsolutely stunning and hilarious. I loved it so much I saw it a secondtime earlier this month in the actual movie theater screenings! I wouldrecommend this to any one. If you love to hike and backpack and lovethe Sierras, this movie will blow your mind! GO SEE IT!!! Bring theentire family! I bought the Blu Ray copy to show all my family andfriends. Do yourself a favor, don't miss a screening in your town!
