Critic Reviews for Extreme Ops
In their quest for the youth market, Hollywood hacks often dress up their old script ideas in baggy pants and backward baseball caps, but I hope American kids aren't dumb enough to swallow this awful extreme-sports adventure.
The impossible plot and laugh-out-loud dialogue would have been tolerable if the tricks were impressive.
This is a duff plot, but as an excuse to show lots of people with guns, a lot more people jumping around on snowboards and even more people repeatedly shouting 'Woooo!', it's unbeatable.
An acceptably mindless sanctuary from the annual December attack of important movies duking it out for Oscar glory.

Audience Reviews for Extreme Ops
The stunt, the action, and the eye candy was incredible. The storyline was strong and this movie could have been great, if they had focused as much attention on the story and the conflict as they did on the stunts. All in all, very entertaining, eventhou there isn't much of a story to it.
Extreme Ops is the perfect definition of a very bad film. Bad acting, bad actors, plot and directing. The plot to this film is by far one of the stupidest plots I've ever seen for a film. A bunch of extreme sports kids defeat powerful terrorists. Right then that should tell you this film will suck-and it it does. Everyone in this film obviously know nothing in making a good action film. If you want a good action film view Die Hard, that had a story, this piece of shit had action and no story. Extreme Ops is one of the worst films I've seen, and like I said it's the perfect example of a bad film. Nothing really does make sense, and the film gets even more rediculous. A very bad teen oriented action film, and I watched this when I was in my teens, it sucked then and it sucks now.
"Look it's not easy for me to admit this, but the fact of it is, over the past 24 hours, I've fallen in love with each and every one of you. We're going to be pretty high up there and it's going to be pretty dangerous. And if anything should happen, I don't think I'd forgive myself. Especially you Silo, your quiet charm has cast a spell over me." - Ian
Actually this movie wasn't a total stinker. It had some good points, a lot of low points as well, but still some good stuff to be seen. The story was actually a rather interesting idea. The characters in the movie were all pretty good ideas, just not executed correctly. The two characters that were supposed to be super adrenaline junkies were good ideas, but weren't done justice. I'm not saying the acting was horrible or anything like that, I'm just saying that some of the things they were doing didn't look "cool", just plain stupid. There were a few stunts that they did that were really cool though, so it wasn't a total bust. The action in the film was actually really good at times. But, it was very often short-lived. For the actual final moments of the movie, let's just say it could have been better. Most of the actors did a fine job. Rufus Sewell did a fine job as always. Devon Sawa did a surprisingly good job in this movie. Bridgette Wilson did a great job with her role and looks absolutely fantastic throughout the movie. Jana Pallaske did an ok job with her role. She wasn't spectacular, but she did pretty good job given the material. All in all, I can't in good conscience recommend you go see this movie in the theater unless you just want to see some cool snowboarding/skiing footage.
