Storyline

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.

Quotes

Silo: [after Ian gives them safety equipment] This shit is for pussies!
Ian: 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.
Silo: Piss off!

Extremely Op ..... Oops!

Will (Devon Sawa) is a Hollywood producer who excels at making commercials with some extreme sports fanatics on centre stage. When an opportunity arises to do a big-league advertisement, he decides to film it against an actual avalanche. He hires Jeffrey (Rupert Graves) as the director and heads for the Austrian Alps near the Yugoslavian border to film the spot.

His team consists of Ian (Rufus Sewell), Chloe (Bridgette Wilson) and Kittie (Jana Pallaske), three extreme sports connoisseurs who love staring the storm right in the eye. To film such a daring and precarious commercial they need an equally adventurous cinematographer, who turns out to be Mark (Heino Ferch). Together, these six individuals land up in an under construction resort. They start filming, unaware that the place is also the secret hideout of Slobodan Pavle (Klaus Lvwitsch), a Serbian war criminal who is believed to have died in a plane crash. Mark erroneously catches Pavle on tape who believes the six are actually CIA operatives. Pavle orders their execution lest they should blow the whistle on his whereabouts and his latest plans to wreak havoc. Thus begins a battle of survival as the protagonists use every trick and ploy they know to survive and bring down the evil Pavle.

From the story and the trailers, Extreme ops may sound like a flick for a selected audience. Although the movie does not have much of a plot or situations that are aesthetically appealing, the numerous incredible and ingenious action sequences ensure that one stays glued to the couch. The film can be enjoyed only if one watches it without any expectations!—
