Storyline

Alex Dalton is a 30-year-old airplane mechanic who dreams of winning the gold medal in Olympic figure skating, but is troubled by his past after walking out of a competition against a rival Russian figure staking. Alex's dreams put a strain on his demanding father Edgar who wants him to abandon his dreams to help him run his mechanic business. Then, a shady business manager, named Brian Burke, offers to sponsor Alex for him to achieve his dream, but as a cost of firing his old coach Tom Bryant. With a sponsor, a new coach, and publicity, Alex sees his dream coming true, only to soon learn that his sponsor and new coach plan to fix the judging of all the figure skating competitions so they can use Alex and his newfound fame for personal gain.

Ice Pawn
26 March 2007 | by Tigereyez-2See all my reviews

This film is about a figure skater named Alex Dalton (Paul Cross) who is getting too old to compete. His lifelong dream was to win the Olympics, and his die-hard ambition drives him to never give up.

Alex works as an airplane mechanic, which pays for his passion for skating. With his mother deceased, his father is the only relative he has close to him (played by Dan Haggerty), but does not support his skating.

Alex is approached by a rich investor one day who has taken notice to him and wants to sponsor him, but he makes Alex sign a contract that says Alex must pay him a large percent of what he would make if he wins the Olympics. To ensure Alex's victory, he then goes about fixing the competition so that Alex wins.

Alex finds out about the rigging of the competition and pretends that he's taking drugs to fool everyone into thinking that will be disqualified, which makes everyone else bet on other competitors to win. Then, in his moment of truth, Alex pulls off a Triple Axel and wins on his own merit. The character of Alex Dalton, superbly acted by Paul Cross is a great example of perseverance in the face of corruption, following the dreams in your heart, and winning when everyone thinks you're just an underdog. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to enjoy a real story about life and what happens when decisions are put in front of you when choices have to be made.
