A Good Action Movie With a Disappointing End
25 April 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Rick (Ed Marinaro) is the owner of a ski resort near the bankruptcy. His alcoholic friend Scott (Nick Mancuso) manages the place, and Rick decides to put his young wife Lauren (Kirsten Robek) in charge of the management. Alex (Wolf Larson) is one of the responsible for the safety of the mountain. In order to improve the condition of the mountain against avalanches, Alex and Lauren install eight explosives on its top to provoke a controlled explosion. However, three reckless snowboarders jeopardize the operation, causing a serious accident. This movie is a good action movie, showing astonishing landscapes, specially through the aerial camera. It transmits lots of tension, specially when some persons are buried under the snow, waiting for rescue. The problem is the story with many flaws. For example, how could a man invest money in a place located in a area with risk of avalanche, and gives its management to a drunken friend? His friend shows that has no moral qualities, lying about Alex and Lauren, drinking on duty etc. In the conclusion of the plot, it seems that the budget finished and the story has a very disappointing end. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): `A Fúria da Avalanche' (`The Fury of the Avalanche')
