As a paramedic, pilot-in-training, and lover of films and movies of all kinds, I have to say this was a true yawner. Yes, it did have a story, it just wasn't well told. The scenery was fabulous for anyone who loves the mountains in winter but aside from that there's nothing else to rave about. The acting and writing in this was subpar to average at best and that really brought it down. David Charvet should stick to being on the beach cause here he made a HORRIBLE paramedic in the mountains. His performance made me want to slap his character and say, `Fine, idiot, stay on the mountain, you useless loser. You're nothing but a wimp. Did you sleep through Paramedic school and pay someone to take the final exam for you?' He had no survival skills and he was in the military in Alaska?? Give me a break. I'm shaking my head at what it was: I guess the combination of bad lines he was given with the fact that he's no Paul Newman, heck, he's not even Newman from Seinfeld. And Christopher Atkins played a youth minister? The writer just guessed on how a real youth minister would act and what he would say, right? Director's fault, too, cause obviously he cut out most of what dealt with faith in God in helping to get out of this mess they were all in. The real minister from the real story shoulda been on set to advise. Given some better writing and a better lead actor, Patricia Kalember could have made this life or death survival drama come alive. But nope. The story of this
miracle in the mountains was a story wasted and overall not a good piece of work: C- (even though it kept my attention all the way through I kinda feel that might be a bit generous.)
