Customer Reviews

When it is 20 below zero water freezes, but it wasn't frozen in these scenes.
William R, High
The Long Kiss Goodnight is one of my all time favorite movies, and I started getting really mad.
Shaw Sande
Some of the explosion scenes in the movie, especially one at the end, are pretty cool.

The video box says they crash in Alaska, but in the movie they say they are crashing near Tumbler Ridge, which is in British Columbia. They say it is North-North-East of Edmonton, but it is North-North-West. This movie is so full of holes!! The plane comes to a rest half off a cliff, but no other scene shows the cliff. They drive from B.C. to Niagara Falls for the (quite awesome) bridge scene, in a few hours. A guy falls several hundred feet during an avalanche, while moments before he was in a wooded valley. The snow comes and goes. People arrive out of nowhere. The bear eats two humans in as many days. The movie box also says it is a chemical weapon, but it is a mind controlled weapon, with what seems to be electro-magnetic parts. The only chemical is there to destroy the machine. This movie is a good one to watch to see how many holes you can find! It doesn't take much to find them. Treat must be nearing the end of his career.

How could Fox legally make this movie? The plane tethering and crash sequences as well as the rescue helicopter shots are straight out of "Cliffhanger." As Treat Williams (or is it a substitute?) comes to the rescue, we switch to "Narrow Margin" footage. At this point, I was hoping that Gene Hackman might step in to save the day. Near the finale, we are given the great 18-wheeler roll and bridge explosion from "The Long Kiss Goodnite!" By now, not even cameos from Geena Davis or Samuel L. Jackson could save this film. The Tesla device was the only original idea - had it not been just a fantasy, we might be living in a very different world; without (to quote dialogue from the film) "new-kew-luhr" problems.
I think this DVD has a chance of becoming a collector's item in that it is SO, SO BAD. It will bring a great many hearty laughs to action film buffs! Buy a copy before it goes out of print!!!

What a boring, ridiculous movie. For a film that supposedly starred Treat Williams, he was barely in the movie. Everything about the plot was highly improbable from the plane crash to the weather. The actresses in the movie continued to have perfect makeup and hairdos considering they had survived a plane crash and several days without running water or hair blow dryers. I don't have a clue how the movie turned out as I had to turn it off as my brain was rapidly turning to mush. I hope somebody buys my copy so I can get it out of the house.

In CRASH POINT ZERO, which is commonly marketed as "Extreme Limits," Treat Williams and a no-name cast plus action scenes pinched from other movies all coalesce into one of the biggest 90 minute misamas of the year 2001.

It's an absolute stinker about a plane carrying a death ray invented by Nicholas Tesla that crashes in the Canadian mountains. To keep this dangerous weapon from falling into the wrong hands, the CIA comes to the rescue.

Can you say: "BORING"?
(NOTE: currenty rated 3.1 at IMDb.)

The director of "Extreme Limits," exploitation specialist Jim Wynorski, got his Hollywood start cutting movie trailers for "King of the B's" Roger Corman. With megaphone, beret and jodhpurs he's directly responsible for such "classics" as CHOPPING MALL (1986), BIG BAD MAMA II (1988), RETURN OF THE SWAMP THING (1989), MUNCHIE (1992), MUNCHIE STRIKES BACK (1994), THE BARE WENCH PROJECT (2000) and its various sequels and permutations. Perhaps to diffuse blame, Wynorski has directed under several aliases: Arch Stanton, Jamie Wagner, Tom Popatopolous, Harold Blueberry, Noble Henry, Salvadore Ross, Rob Robertson, J.R. Mandish, Bob E. Brown and the one he used here, Jay Andrews.

What you can learn from reading other reviews! As my wife sat and watched this movie, I kept thinking that the big explosion at the end reminded me of another movie..the far superior LONG KISS GOODNIGHT. And now that I have read the other reviews, I see where they used footage from CLIFFHANGER and NARROW MARGIN. Hmmm...studios will go to extreme lengths to make movies huh?

As far as the rest of the movie goes, Treat Williams is all but lost in a small role as the CIA special agent with the warped sense of humor. Most of the focus is given to the budding romance of John Beck and Susan Blakeley, survivors of the ridiculously staged plane crash. Add Bongo the Bear and a subdued Steve Franken and there's even more foolishness. Not to mention the other survivors who go off on their own; one dies from unknown causes; the stupid wildlife t.v. star (hah) shows her stupidity by firing a gun and causing an avalance that wipes out everyone except the two lovebirds who have just reconciled. We also have a crooked pilot, a diabetic man and his daughter, and oh yes, a Tessla device that uses brainwaves to cause nuclear destruction.

Why the three stars? The scenery is beautiful; I found myself interested in spite of myself, and some of the performances were enjoyable, particularly Ms. Blakeley's alcoholic writer. But the big "character development" scenes only served to slow down the movie's overall pacing. But considering the theft from other movies, one can only laugh and say, gee whiz!!!
