A director (Rufus Sewell) leads his film crew to the Austrian Alps to make a commercial featuring three extreme skiers tailed by an avalanche. Unbeknownst to them, Slobodan Pavle (Klaus Lowitsch), a Serbian war criminal, is hiding nearby. When he finds out he’s been accidentally captured on film, he hunts down the crew. Bridgette Wilson-Sampras and Devon Sawa co-star in this action-filled adventure.
This is unlike any other film which I have seen. It starts out fairly slowly and then really speeds down the tracks at film’s end. A Serbian war criminal hunts down several extreme skiers in the Alps at the film’s climax. Their attempts to escape and to nail him conclude with a fast paced ending. An exciting action sequence includes the enemy firing from a helicopter and the lightning fast skiers doing all they can to elude him and to even bring him down. The scenes leading up to that include some interesting skiing scenes, but also have slow moving party scenes and dialog which is a bit uninspired. The themes of sacrifice and being a team player are commendable. Unfortunately, some strong language and the implied sexual relationship between an unmarried couple prevents us from awarding our Dove Seal to this DVD.
