No out of the ordinary stand out sequences or acting or even story but just a decent all round film.
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 ›
I didn't really like this movie, but I found the DVD in the woods next to some folded up adult magazine pages that probably once belong to a lonely homeless man. I thought the DVD might really be a something else, but it wasn't. It was Extreme Ops, just like the case said it would be. For a free hobo movie, beggars can't be choosers. Also, Rufus Sewell is in this. Five Stars.
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).
