A group of friends on vacation decide to venture onto a trail high up in the mountains that has been closed for repairs. The climb proves more perilous than planned, especially as they soon... See full summary »
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.

well, this movie is really some waste of time... maybe they put a lot of effort into it, but don't watch it if you have better things you can watch :)
it's not all that bad, the stunts are sometimes good, but the whole thing is just not credible, the action is coming and going, the plot is not good, the facts are wrong... Yugoslavia has no border with Austria, the Austrian after-ski parties aren't like that at all, you would actually get you as* kicked if you do that kind of thing in Tirol... lots of things don't add up... then the characters are badly built up - no personality... no idea why Ian talks to his g/f all the time... well, you'll see for yourself...
Oh, and if there's someone doing the stuff these guys do, and succeeding every time on the first try... well, I quit snowboarding :)
