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.

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 :)
