CASS' CLIP (WARNING: **spoilers below**)
Ian (Rufus Sewell) and Jeff (Rupert Graves) are partners, in the business, of making commercials featuring extreme sports enthusiasts. While shooting a white water rafting scene, Jeff causes one of the athletes to nearly get killed. Ian and Jan agree to clearly define their respective roles -- Ian, the stunt coordinator, and Jeff, the business representative. An Asian company is in search of an exciting commercial to promote their product. So who ya gonna call when you need a thrilling avalanche scene? Ian, and his group of misfit sport extremists -- snowboarders Silo (Joe Absolom), Kittie (Jana Pallaske), World Cup-Gold Medallist, Chloe (Bridgette Wilson Sampras) along with cameraman extraordinaire, Will (Devon Sawa) head to the Australian Alps to film the commercial.

[Script change]: In order to fake the death of Serbian war criminal, Slovoban Pavle (Klaus Lowitsch), let's kill several hundred innocent passengers in a plane crash and make it look like a terrorist plot. And, why don't we hide Pavle, at the same location, where the commercial crew is staying. If Pavle was accidentally filmed, and his identity blown, this may add some much needed suspense. Finally, have Pavle and his Serbian guards chase these sports extremists down the Alps, so they can ski and snowboard downhill, all while dodging bullets. Okay, okay, and don't forget to include unnecessary cliffhanging scenes and blow up a helicopter. (PLEEZZ!!!)

Plot? Who needs a plot? Okay people, quiet on the set!

ACTION!!!

Yeah, right.

Extreme Ops is a wanna be XXX movie. However, if you're an extreme sports enthusiast, then don't waste your time seeing Extreme Ops. The acting is sub par, the dialogue is boring, the chase scenes are ridiculous, and the special effects are mediocre. Nuff said.

CASS' CONCLUSION
This movie should have been named Extreme Oops.
