Storyline

Famous ski stunt cameraman Willy Bogner's third movie features breathtaking pictures of extreme skiing, snowboarding and a lot of other things you don't want to try at your next skiing holiday. The story surrounding the whole thing is completely insignificant compared to the wonderful pictures. Nearly all the actors in the movie are world champions in their category. Willy Bogner's most famous work are probably the ski stunts in most of the James Bond movies. Written by Harald Mayr <marvin@bike.augusta.de>

Finally, Bogner gives up plotting...
13 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

...and just films what he does best, some amazing stuntwork.

There is indeed sort of a basic plot circling about master ski artist John Eaves (playing himself) and his master-snowboarder son (played by a master snowboarder named Reto Wosshisname), but, bottom line, this is merely an excuse for some more, some less spectacular stunt sequences, subsequently mostly on ski. There are a couple of funny bits, one involving German former skiing world champion Markus Wasmeier, some unfunny bits involving a fat American tourist chasing John for some reason or other (played by an actress by the name of Sharon Stone, which lured many-a-unsuspecting male to the ticket booth, 'cause she was top billed), some cool lookin' stuff you'd better never try at home (or at your ski resort) and some other stuff thrown in for good measure like paragliding, bungee-jumping etc.

Not much of a movie, granted, "White Magic" plays more like one of those pause-filling music videos aired by most sports channels when they're out of other material to broadcast.

If you can be entertained that easily, you might be amused, but I even got more kicks out of "Fire, Ice & Dynamite."
