(out of 5)


The exciting adventures of mountain climbers are rendered lifeless by Renny Harlin’s airheaded direction. plays a jaded helicopter rescue pilot who is unable to return to his work after losing a friend on the job.  Another rescue has been phoned in from a mountain top, a group of skiiers who have gotten stranded in the mountains, and he has to get involved again. What he and his team are unaware of, however, is that the victims are actually cold-blooded killers who have just made off with a huge robbery. Their loot is hidden somewhere in the peaks of the Rockies and they need guides to help locate them (and of course they will kill them all afterwards). Does Super Sly take it lying down? Never! Parents should be cautious of showing their youngsters the relentlessly gory violence in this harebrained action movie, everyone else should be warned that there are far too many points where you are required to suspend your disbelief beyond even the most ridiculous Hollywood film.
