breath taking and informative
5 December 2005 | by rhodescaSee all my reviews

The entire movie was breath taking as well as informative about the sport. The scenery was amazing and the stunts were a first time viewing experience for me and kept me on the edge of my seat. It's unbelievable what the human mind and body can endure in this sport. I congratulate the snow boarders in this film and the entire crew that put this film together. This was a movie I would like to see over and over again and bring other people to see it. Unfortunately, I had to drive 1-1/2 hours to see it. It is not shown in any of my local theaters. The trip was well worth while. This is the type of movie that doesn't end when the film is over, you keep talking about it to anyone who will listen.
