Storyline

A film crew travels to the Austrian Alps near the (former) Yugoslav border to film three extreme sports enthusiasts being chased down by an avalanche for a commercial. What they don't know, however, is that they're filming near the secret hideout of Slobodan Pavle, a Serbian war criminal. Accidentally catching him on film, they become locked in a life-or-death chase for their lives through the mountains that includes skiing, snowboarding, sky diving, white water rafting, helicopters, motorcycles and base jumping.

Quotes

Silo: [after Ian gives them safety equipment] This shit is for pussies!
Ian: Look it's not easy for me to admit this, but the fact of it is, over the past 24 hours, I've fallen in love with each and every one of you. We're going to be pretty high up there and it's going to be pretty dangerous. And if anything should happen, I don't think I'd forgive myself. Especially you Silo, your quiet charm has cast a spell over me.
Silo: Piss off!

Meh. Downgraded stunty version of "Vertical Limit"
21 May 2019 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

Not as bad as others say... still enjoyable though and I might not be as descriptive as some. Very cool ridiculous stunts which is nice, great cast, messy script which isn't bad with the entertainment value and epicness!
