Extreme Ops ★½ 2002 (PG-13)

Shameless attempt to cash in on the popularity of extreme sports does a faceplant in every area but stunt work. The plot revolves around the antics of a group of snowboarders and skiers as they film a commercial for director Ian (Sewell). In their exploration of a half-finished resort, boarders Silo (Absolom) and Kittie (Pallaske) accidentally film a supposedly dead Serbian war criminal (Lowitsch). The intrepid crew must then evade the villain's armed henchmen while still finding time to poke fun at frosty downhill skier Chloe (Wilson-Sampras). No reason to be stoked about this one. 93m/C VHS, DVD .
