Storyline

A helicopter pilot work with a husband and his wife in the frozen North tagging foxes for the Environmental Protection Agency. When an avalanche hits the group, the husband is killed and only by the pilot's perseverance is the wife saved. Two years later, the wife takes on a corporation which wants to extend an oil pipeline across the tundra above Juneau. She is convinced that this will cause an avalanche on the town. Of course, she is rejected by the corporation executives. She recruits the pilot to try to aid her, but with no success. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Goofs

Near the end of the movie when the airplane with Neal and Lia is crashing, the first shot of it sliding down the mountain clearly shows the tail broken off, and we also see someone outside/above the cockpit waving their arms, but in the following shots the plane is shown with the fuselage still intact (minus wings only) sliding down the mountain and the cockpit is also still intact with both people inside and in their seats. This is also the way the plane ends up in the crevice. See more »

HORRIBLE!! BUT A MUST-SEE!
1 September 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This movie is hilarious!! The effects, plot and acting are SO BAD that you'll be cracking up, or crying. It's a movie you should watch if you feel like ripping apart something. The best scene is the airplane crash, and how they just survive getting thrown around, but still jump right out. I couldn't understand how they were so scared of the ice crack, but then just slide right down it. As someone who has studied glaciers, a crevasse is dangerous and once you fall in, that's it. But as soon as they slide down it, the next scene is great because it shows them just walking out of the crevasse. Also, the models of the city and the powdered sugar used for snow are awful effects.
