This article discusses the upcoming Netflix film Broad Peak, including the premise, cast and crew, release date, trailer, and more.
Winter is coming, and with it, Netflix is offering up a new action and adventure film in the form of Broad Peak – a biographical drama following Maciej Berbeka’s second journey up the mountain after learning his first journey was incomplete. It promises to be an adventure with a difference in that it will be as much about past ghosts as the challenges in front of our protagonist,

Netflix’s Broad Peak premise
As Netflix describes –
“After climbing Broad Peak mountain, Maciej Berbeka learns his journey to the summit is incomplete. 25 years later, he sets out to finish what he started.”
Our opinion of the premise
There’s nothing quite like a good adventure film. When they’re done well, it’s almost like you’ve undertaken the endeavour yourself, and whilst Netflix had been a hit or miss in the past with similar offerings, there is no reason why Broad Peak can’t be one of their better ones. This one sounds like it will be a little different in the sense that it’s all about someone revisiting their initial journey, as opposed to being about the struggle of that first venture out, so maybe there will be less sense of the unknown? Or perhaps complacency will be the undoing of the intrepid adventurers? Time will tell.

Yes – watch it here:
Broad Peak could go either way, admittedly. But – as with any film based on a real life adventure – it does have that true story upon which it is based working in its favour, which can do any film a lot of favours. It’s probably one of those lesser known adventure stories, which allows it more room to surprise, but does suggest it might have to work a little harder, as surely if it was that great a trek we’d all know about it before now? Or perhaps its success will lie in the fact it could be about more than the expedition itself, given that Broad Peak is about revisiting an initial mountain climb? Watch this space – we’ll all find out soon enough.
