Deep Winter Reviews
(2008) Deep Winter
Acting is bad and the plot is too cliche to be taken seriously and absolutely offers nothing professional skiers don't know themselves and very predictable, but if anyone were to be ignorant as much as I am about the dynamics of filming skiing videos this film succeeds at doing just that. Movie has simplistic plot about a professional skier who gets himself kicked off his ski team, he then visits a girl working at a bar who the star is close to her brother and a professional snowboarder whose also knows about the star getting himself kicked off his skiing team, brings along and introduces to him a film crew who makes ski videos for a living and offers him a contract to showcase him to do some serious skiing on some of Alaskas most trecherous mountains. Michael Madson also stars as the helicopter pilot whose job is to drop skiers/ snowboarders to the mountains. The process of making skiing videos is what should be focused here than on anything else otherwise it's pointless to be watched at all.
2.5 out of 4
oh, snap!! This movie is surprisingly good.
I haven't seen any thing like this in quite some time. so long in fact that i can't think of the other of its kind. the male chick flick.
Kellan Lutz dies on the mountain called the Meteor.
Kellan Lutz's sister and his friend get married and have a baby.
The scenery is beautiful! I think that is the best part of the whole movie. Kudos to the director for getting some fantastic shots! Some of the angles were really awkward. For instance, at one point, you were skiing down the mountain with Tyler (Eric Lively), which was awkward. I didn't really appreciate that. I want to watch them do it, not feel like I'm sliding to my own death down a solid sheet of arctic tundra. No thank you.
The soundtrack is pretty cool, I'm not a huge fan of that generic rock stuff, but it fit the movie well.
I think there was an overuse of drugs that was extremely unnecessary, for serious, get rid of the dang bong. I didn't mind the drinking but the weed was stupid.
Overall, it's a good movie. I would probably recommend this movie to my friends who ski and snow board though, it's not for everyone.
i love it
