Your Say

Kind of interesting that Cliffhanger is actually one of the most significant movies in movie history - not for the potboiler story, but for technical reasons.

Cliffhanger was the first movie in which safety wires and cabling used to suspend the actors were technologically removed from the frames so cleanly that they had no visual remnant at all. This meant that the margin of actors' and stunt doubles' safety could be enormously greater because directors didn't have to stick to just-barely-thick-enough cabling, hoping it would blend in to the background (which it often did not).

This was a major special-effects breakthrough and laid the groundwork for huge numbers of later movies that took full advantage of the method, for example, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
