WARNING - SPOILERS BELOW.

The Digest

Ian (Rufus Sewell) has a problem. He is a director who films Extreme games type commercials. He cares about his crew and will not do anything to put them in harms way. Too bad his producer Jeffrey (Rupert Graves) doesn't get that. He just agreed to shoot a commercial with a skier being chased by an avalanche - one that isn't digitally placed in the film. So basically Ian has to get a crew together; go to a remote location; start and avalanche; then run.

after gathering a rag-tag crew of skiers and snowboarders, everything seems to be going as planned until they accidentally tape a former Serbian military man who is wanted for war crimes, but everyone thinks is dead. Now they must stay alive long enough to film the commercial, which is next to impossible, when gunfire is erupting over their head.

The Dish

What a horrible movie. Even knowing that quite of few of the special effects were real and not computer enhanced, did nothing to win me over. The plot was juvenile and the acting was wooden.

Nothing to write home about. Just another waste of film.

The Directive

Catch it on cable when nothing else is on.

Extremely bad
