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.

This shit is for pussies!
Look it's not easy for me to admit this, but the fact of it is, over the past 24 hours, I've fallen in love with each and every one of you. We're going to be pretty high up there and it's going to be pretty dangerous. And if anything should happen, I don't think I'd forgive myself. Especially you Silo, your quiet charm has cast a spell over me.

This film is bad filmmaking 101. A commercial director (Rufus Sewell, who has certainly done better work elsewhere) assembles a group of extreme athletes (including Bridgette Wilson-Sampras as a Gold Medal Skier??) and lugs them off to a secluded area of the Swis Alps to film them outracing an avalance for a DV Camera commercial!!! Of course the same hillside out intrepid filmmakers choose is the hidding place of some terrorist leader, who thinks the bumbling and arguing film crew are actualy CIA Agents trying to nab him! Of course the first hour or so is taken up by inane banter among the athletes, including a raver chick (a dead ringer for early Angelina Jolie) who thinks Sampras gold Medal skier isnt hip enough to be in their crowd... Eventualy, after the obligatory Hot Tub bonding scene, we get to some action when the bad guys chase out heroes down the slopes in a helicopter! Of course the ending is so rediculous that you'll just laugh at the ineptitude of the screenwriters. This is a terrible movie from start to finish. GRADE: F
