Watched “Extreme Ops” on DVD. I wanted to rent this movie on multiple occasions, because of its cheap and catchy title and a nice snowboard guy on the cover, but a low rating at IMDB kind of set me back. This time though, I was in a hurry and wanted to get over with the renting stuff, so I took it without much thinking.
It’s an excellent movie about extreme sports done by people who obviously love extreme sports. Especially skiing and snowboarding. With some skating. And parachuting. And rock climbing. Lots and lots of extreme action. Very nice footage. They even tried to put some story behind. The story sucked, but it wasn’t needed that much anyway. Soundtrack was very appropriate. I wish there were more of it though. I also enjoyed the natural type of acting by most of the cast. Surely this film has its entertaining value. It’s not going to provoke any deep thinking though.
I’ll give it a 7 out of 10. Part of the marks are to compensate for the low rating it has. I really enjoyed the flick.
