  1. There is a fair share of turkeys at the multiplex this week, but none are quite as overcooked as Extreme Ops.
  2. 30
    The dramatic scenes are frequently unintentionally funny, and the action sequences -- clearly the main event -- are surprisingly uninvolving, especially given that director Christian Duguay is an extreme skiing buff who habitually shoots dangerous stunts himself.
  3. A pathetically inane and unimaginative cross between "XXX" and "Vertical Limit," it could only harm the careers of everyone involved in its making - including top British stage actors Rufus Sewell and Rupert Graves.
  4. 20
    It's like "Jackass," but with a budget and no midgets.
  5. 20
    Extreme Ops seems to have only the slightest grasp of its own absurdity (or its own horribleness), which makes it almost charming.

    Action pics rarely come much more blandly generic than Extreme Ops, an instantly forgettable snow-and-stuntwork extravaganza.
  7. Less a movie than a 93-minute Mountain Dew commercial.

    The mountain would probably recommend that you save your money.
  9. Dude, one last thing: If you see my moms and pops, definitely don't tell them about this.
  10. 10
    Ops is too brain-dead to play the incognito war criminal segment for comedy, although when Will is seen thumbing through the pages of a newspaper called USA Daily, the picture has inadvertently tumbled down a Mad magazine wormhole.
  11. 10
    Even the action sequences are poorly executed, with lots of choppy editing meant to conceal the fakery.

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, even thou there isn't much substance to it. Full Review »
