On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China, there were a number of film and television works with high box office and good reputation. Among them, “The Climbers” is a film based on historical events. Before the film was released, this type was in the history of Chinese film. It is still blank. The main melody film always runs through the current proposition, and its content and form are also flowing and changing. Therefore, the article believes that this film opened the prelude to the “Chinese main theme adventure film”, which is a form of rhythm of the main melody film in the contemporary, its experimental and exploratory worthy of study. This article interprets the ideological and artistic nature of The Climber from the perspectives of the main and secondary line narratives, character construction, and the ego and the big self.
