With Premium Rush coming out this weekend to be nothing other than a schlocky mess, I figure we are ripe to have some more EXTREME action movies coming out. This film will be directed by any hack like Rob Cohen.
This film starts off with two brothers at the top of a gondola in Vail, Colorado. They are all getting ready to ride down a diamond course and we see one of them , Rick, played by Mike Vogel is nervous. He’s not as experienced as his older brother Ryan, played by Anson Mount. Ryan encourages to just do it anyway, and when they begin to ride, an avalanche starts. They attempt to out ride the avalanche and are doing well, but it starts to get faster and Rick, decides to ride up a half pipe (that is conveniently in the middle of the course) and get big enough air to grab on to a high tree branch. His brother follows suit, but does not get enough air and grabs onto Ricks board. Rick tries to grab him and bring him up to safety, but Ryan says it’s too late, he’ll end up bringing them both down. He says “never stop riding” and he falls in slow motion into the avalanche, and we assume he dies. Rick screams no, and at that moment a helicopter comes to get him out of the tree, and the the Title Card “SNOWBLIND” comes onto the screen.
