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.

I went into this movie with a open mind, after having been told by everyperson alive that it would be a waste of time, I went in hoping they were wrong. Well I am happy to say, they were. The film is very entertaining and actually is a very cool movie to watch. To bad it's opening up now, they should have held it from coming out at least till a time when there weren't so many blockbusters opening up. But I really enjoyed this movie and you all should check it out. The story is about this commercial director who does these insane stunts (like the mountain dew commercials) with extreme sports. They have a chance to make it BIG so what they do is instead of making a CGI avalanche scene, they decide to do it for real. So they call in the pros and they go down to the mountain ski lodge. They get jipped on there rooms and end up staying in a secluded resort. THat night, 2 of them go exploring the place and follow a hot babe into a room, they video tape her and her supposed father and then get chased off by dogs. Only thing is...it wasn't her father...and the guy who they video taped...faked his death on a plane and is presumed dead. Wanted by the FEDS, once he finds out they have a tape of him...he will do anything to get it back! The story goes from there, I was pretty impressed by the stunts and also, the fact that the avalanche scene looked awesome! Unlike that lousy special effects used in Blue Crush. Bridgette Wilson is beautiful and hot in this movie (as always) and now I am mad cause she is married and not to me!!! >:( Anyway, I give this movie a 7/10. Wasn't the greatest movie, but it sure as heck isn't the worst! It will take you by surprise!!!
