David Janssen plays a grizzled national park rescue worker who clashes with a rival rescuer over each other's conduct in order to take the credit when they have to rescue some mountain climbers stranded on a high elevation glacier. Written by
I picked this very boring movie up for less than a buck on VHS . . . and I paid too much for it!! David Janssen, Tony Musante & Dorian Harewood are all decent actors -- and they try very hard here -- but this made-for-TV film is just excruciating to watch. The rest of the cast is horrible -- especially the "actors" who get stranded on the mountain -- and half the footage is helicopters just hovering around. Horribly dated and completely useless flashbacks do nothing except add to the film's running time, a very long 97 minutes. Pretty terrible direction and even worse editing just sink this production.
The Vestron Video VHS print (which this was) might be a theatrical version of the film: there's brief nudity during the flashbacks. (The nudity doesn't help add any interest either!)
Thank God for the fast forward button on my remote.
