A film crew travels to the Austrian Alps near the (former) Yugoslav border to film three extreme sports enthusiasts being chased down by an avalanche for a commercial. What they don't know, however, is that they're filming near the secret hideout of Slobodan Pavle, a Serbian war criminal. Accidentally catching him on film, they become locked in a life-or-death chase for their lives through the mountains that includes skiing, snowboarding, sky diving, white water rafting, helicopters, motorcycles and base jumping.

Plot??? Where???
1 November 2003 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

This movie looked great. I really wanted to see it. But it was a disappointment. Why? This movie has no plot at all.. There's a group of people making a commercial and a terrorist (or whatever). And that terrorist wants to kill that group. Well, at least 15 minutes before the end. The movie is based on stunts, stunts and again stunts. I was so sick of the snow and skiing. I wanted to see an ACTION movie, not a typical show about extreme sport.
