Storyline

It begins on a glacier nestled on a frozen peak high in the wild Ural Mountains of Russia, kissed by clouds, the top of the world. A lonely, forbidding place, it's home to THOM CUSSLER and brother, JOCK, a pair of transplanted westerners seeking their fortune in Russia's new capitalist economy. They run a hard-luck snowmobile tour business that takes adventurous winter tourists up the mountains to experience the ultimate extreme winter thrill. During one such excursion, a massive ledge of snow at the top of the ridge suddenly collapses and an avalanche crashes down! Only the quick thinking and expert driving of Thom and Jock saves them. The tiny village of Dubroz, nestled far below, is not so lucky. Avalanche sirens wail, but the panicked villagers barely have time to act as the avalanche crashes down! A wall of snow smashes into one end of the village, blasting-in windows, collapsing and burying buildings, tossing cars in the air like toys! From their vantage point high on the ridge ...

Preposterous hokum, but, hey, nice scenery!
27 December 2012 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Two brothers from the States run a snowmobile business in a Russian ski town. One loves the daughter of a gentleman who runs the resort, the other has a yen for a touchy geologist. But, at present, biz is not great and romance is not budding. All too soon, the geologist declares that there should be no snowmobiling, as the conditions are ripe for an avalanche. Not only that, she says the ski resort should never have been built in this area, for it will most likely be perpetually dangerous to natural disaster! Of course, no one likes this announcement, for those making money on snowy activities are not ready to pull up stakes. Therefore, contention ensues. No surprise, then, when the big avalanche does come roaring down the slopes and some folks are forces to enter a snow cave to wait out a rescue. Will it arrive? This is a fairly horrid film, except for the lovely scenery. The acting is below average, the script is totally implausible and the direction is lame. Yet, for those who realize most disaster films are not magically believable, some viewers may opt to get this one. As some of the bad guys get their due, the calamity breeds romance among the young and the snowy setting is gorgeous, what's not to love, er, like, er tolerate for an evening?
