I'll skip the synopsis since JPX already reviewed this. I'll jump right into my likes and dislikes. The situation is a nightmare for me personally. Not only do I hate the cold but I'm afraid of heights. Therefore the set up was ideal to have the bejebus scared out of me. Like with “Thirst” my problem was that I just wasn't convinced of the direness of their situation. First of all, I don't remember any of them having a fit of shivering. You'd be damn cold after spending some time motionless on that metal lift chair in nothing more than a regular ski suit. No one had one of those Handsome Stan sub-zero super suits.
Then the storm rolls in with whipping snow and wind, why didn't they protect their faces better? They had scarves yet bared the wind with exposed faces. Dammit I should have been sitting at home feeling cold just watching it. Nope, still warm and cozy here.
This guy gave a 5 minute eye rolling heartfelt speech that totally seemed inappropriate to me at the time. It just added to the lack of authenticity for me.
I actually felt really bad for this poor bastard. Obviously no one ever told him if you jump from a big height try to land on your butt cause your legs won't withstand the impact. It gets much worse for him as well. He's really the whole reason I didn't write this off as crap, I truly felt sorry for the guy.
