The videography & snowboarding are impressive. The time & effort to assemble the riders while balancing weather and conditions to achieve near perfect shots is commendable & also included in the bonus features. Where this type of film leaves me shaking my head is the almost "at all costs" mentality. They speculate that they can barely make a run due to fuel, fog, or avy conditions, yet they try anyways. Then you have the endless high-five, narcissism, and hubris of these self-centered athletes. At least they show a few bails to indicate that nothing is perfect, but in many respects they are pushing the limits of human physical accomplishment where the consequences are permanent injury or death. Sadly, it doesn't seem that they're riding for fun. What's missing in the film is included in the bonus features, particularly the attention to avalanche conditions, where they show a more realistic appraisal of weather and snowpack conditions. We also get access to some fanastic POV runs with JJ and TR. I would have left the guns & propane tanks on the cutting room floor & spliced in the POV footage & avy practice.
