    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Part of the appeal is that it's so bad it's good: The story is ridiculous. At other times, it's just plain good: There are ski and snowboarding scenes, plenty of them, that are beautifully filmed and exhilarating to behold. show more

    A tad more character development would have been nice. show more

    There is a fair share of turkeys at the multiplex this week, but none are quite as overcooked as Extreme Ops. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The stunt work is top-notch; the dialogue and drama often food-spittingly funny. I can hardly wait for Extreme Ops II, perhaps set atop a South Sea island volcano, with North Korean agents and parasailing. show more

    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. show more

    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. show more

    Steve Davis Austin Chronicle

    It's like "Jackass," but with a budget and no midgets. show more

    Less a movie than a 93-minute Mountain Dew commercial. show more

    Keith Phipps The A.V. Club

    Extreme Ops seems to have only the slightest grasp of its own absurdity (or its own horribleness), which makes it almost charming. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    Action pics rarely come much more blandly generic than Extreme Ops, an instantly forgettable snow-and-stuntwork extravaganza. show more
