VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Several men are caught in an avalanche and they are thrown through the snow as it moves like a wave (they are all OK).
 We see a skier fall and tumble down a steep mountain (he's OK) and another tumbles and cartwheels down a steep slope (he's OK).
 A man jumps off a very high bridge, flips backward three times and then opens a parasail and floats to the ground safely. A man skis to the edges of steep drop-offs, jumps over the edge and opens a parachute. People are shown in many scenes skiing very fast down extremely steep mountainsides and performing jumps and tricks.
 We hear about people dying in skiing accidents. We hear that a skier died trying to help a friend who had fallen while skiing. We hear that a veteran Vietnam helicopter pilot had been shot down 13 times and survived. We hear that a man skied the Grand Teton and an avalanche started (he was not harmed). People talk about avalanches, falling rocks and other life threatening situations. A man talks about getting out of jail and going skiing.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
