Editorial Reviews

A television commercial shoot in Austrian Alps featuring extreme skiing goes terribly wrong when the film crew unknowingly captures a wanted Serbian war criminal on film. It's a battle for survival between the war criminal and the extreme sports enthusiasts as they both must avoid capture and the harsh elements of the Alps.

None.

A Kid's Review on August 22, 2003
Format: DVD
This movie had the worst most predictable plot in the world. It's your typical " Run from the insane russian terrorists " plot you've seen over and over again. The dialogue is also pretty stupid with one-liners like " Sup B****es " and " Wicked Cool, man ". However, the stunt sequences were pretty awesome. And whats the deal with the dvd features? There's hardly any features on it!

Though I give only two stars to this film, that doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy it. I don't care if the plot is too silly. That's OK. I don't care a British guy plays an American. Many do that in this business. But I hate when there are good materials, and when they are ruined like in this film. I mean, its stunts.
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.

I rented this movie on VHS because that was teh only formate they had. I think its pretty FReaking Lame. The Sport Sequeces are cool, but aside from that it was very boring. Basicly i Think this movie was yet another example of Hollywood Movie Trash.

EXTREME OPS packs a real wallop with some of its outstanding mind-boggling ski/snowboard sequences. The scenery is breathtaking and there is one long tense scene involving dangling on the side of the Alps. Other than that, we have a standard plot that doesn't move quick enough and some cardboard performances particularly from Bridgette Wilson Sampras and Rupert Graves. Perennial bad boy Rufus Sewell seems lost in the role of a hero, and Devon Sawa hops around like one of the 17 year cicadas. BUT who cares? The action sequences are outstanding and it's an enjoyable diversion. Still the best ski scenes on film are from ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE, and they didn't use CGI!

This is a great action packed movie. Instead of your regular good guy against bad guy deal you have a couple of sports action nuts just trying to suvive there way off a mountain from a big bad Russian Army type guy who happens to be thought to be dead btu really isn't. All the while trying to shoot a comercial for a video camera that has there skier outrunning an avalanche.

EXTREME OPS is about a group of extreme snowboarders/skiers (including Devon Sawa and Bridgette Wilson-Sampras) who travel to Austria to film a commercial. After some shenanigans, they get kicked out of their hotel and decide to rent an under-construction resort. Unfortunately, an escaped war criminal is also staying there, and he tries to kill the group. The plot is completely unbelievable, and the characters are paper-thin. Devon Sawa has an especially embarrasing part, and frankly he is way too out of shape to be believable as a world-class snowboarder.
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).

Okay, like I said, not a bad movie...was it fantastic? No, but was worth seeing. Think of this as a poor mans xXx. This is about a commercial company who wants to make a commerical with extereme sports people. Soon some terrorists get involved, and the extereme sports people have to use their extereme sports skills to escape the terrorists. Like I said, it was a poor man's xXx.
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.
