The management of a ski resort blatantly ignores a local expert's warning that a mass of snow has build up which is just waiting to come down the ski slopes in a terrible avalanche. Instead of clearing the endangered area, skiers are allowed to remain 'for the rest of the day'. Nature doesn't wait till after business hours, so the crystallized wave rushes down and crushes everything on its path, including a brand new hotel; among the guests is the architect Michael Cooper's own family, which now tries to remember the plans well enough to find the way out, as he tries to instruct the rescue operation above, where a second, even larger avalanche is expected.

I want to claw my snow-filled eyes out.
8 August 2011 | by cult_hero13See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. What happened to pride in one's work? The writer, surely should have known that so much of this was unbelievable. The director seemed to have no say in how the actors supposedly acted. Obviously, the actors themselves have no pride in their work as was evident throughout.

I wouldn't even rate this as B film. At least B films know they're bad and try to make that part of the movie. This movie tries to portray itself as something to take seriously.

I hope my review can help push the overall rating of this movie closer to 1 and aide the next poor soul who stumbles upon this and wonders if it'll be any good.
