The characters -- Devon Sawa ("Final Destination"), Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, Rupert Graves, Rufus Sewell, Joe Absolom, Jana Paranske -- are hired to make a promotion video for Japanese client. (Inexplicably, only Ms. Wilson-Sampras is American among the main cast. Devon Sawa is Canadian.) They are going to travel to the Alps, all camping out in the construction site of a resort hotel up on a lonely mountain. But when this rag-tag team encounter a group of terroists (don't ask me why), they are forced to use their skills for extreme sports to survive the deadly fight against them.
The story is silly, but not bad. "Cliffhanger" was silly -- you know, Sly must have been dead within five minutes with that clothes -- but not a bad actioner after all, giving a series of great stunts. And "Extreme Ops" offers some great stunts, and actors are certainly doing their jobs. See, for example, Devon Sawa hanging from the tail of the train, strapped to it by ropes. You can see people doing skateboarding on a moving train, behind a moving train, and so on.
But the drirector Christian Dugay arrange them in a meaningless way, editing so badly that you just don't know what is going on particularly in the first scenes about the canoe riding.Read more ›
Fortunately, some of the stunt sequences are enjoyable, saving this turkey from a one-star review. The best stunt scene occurs when two of the characters are being chased through the resort by some dobermans (I know it sounds lame!). In addition, some viewers will likely enjoy the snowboarding scenes, and the scenery is beautiful. Just don't look too closely at the close-ups, because they're pretty terrible. The film was nominated for Best Specialty Stunt from the World Stunt Awards (alongside Die Another Day, XXX, & Blue Crush).
The only real issue is that I wished they'd use more of the extereme sports to escape. They just did it once. What I did like was the visuals and the camera work.
This was a good was to kick back and burn off stress of the day. If you like this sort of thing (I could take or leave extereme sports) then you may want to check this out.
