    Avalanche Alley

Rating:

Disaster:

Avalanche

Plot Summary:

When a bunch of thrill-seeker snow boarders take a forbidden run down the notorious "avalanche alley," they are caught in what was supposed to be a controlled avalanche. Rick, the owner of the nearby ski resort, must race against time to find his co-workers who were also caught in the avalanche, before another massive avalanche strikes - one that will level his resort.

Comments:

I found 'Avalanche Alley' to be a genuinely entertaining film. There were some dull moments and certain parts of the storyline seemed to go so far and then vanish abruptly. The characters were largely by-the-book, with the exception of the thrill seeking snow boarders, and you could never be sure of who was going to survive. 'Avalanche Alley' gave a unique spin on an old concept with some interesting and comical moments. Overall I found the film to be quite entertaining but wouldn't go as far as to say that it was a 'must see'.

Special Effects:

The special effects were above what I was expecting from this film. Although it largely made use of the same stock footage used in 'Avalanche (1998)' and 'Con Express', the added CGI effects meant that this film stood out from the rest. My only gripe with the special effects shots is that they were to brief and obscure.
