A group of thieves led by Eric Qualen hijack a $100,000,000 delivery en route to a Denver credit union. Their plan to transfer the money mid-air to collaborators in another plane goes awry, and the hijackers crash land and lose the money in the surrounding mountains. They radio for help, and former ranger Gabe Walker and his partner Hal Tucker answer the call. Qualen and his men have a high-tech tracking device that shows them the locations of the three cases of missing money, but they need help traveling through the mountains, so they force Gabe and Hal to be their guides. Forced to scale a rock face in the middle of a snow storm, Gabe grabs some of the money and escapes. Gabe knows Qualen will kill Hal as soon as Qualen has the remaining cash, so, with fellow ranger Jessie Deighan, Gabe tries to reach the money before Qualen does.


The legendary movie with Silvester Stallone in the leading role. Where you can climb over the icefalls without using the cramons, ice axes and rope.

The movie was shoted in beautiful location in Dolomites.

It is not the climbing movie in real meaning but it is funny. :)

I guess this would be a entertaining if not a climber, but I am so the movie was a joke.

so badly filmed! Besides climbing errors like not checking ropes and gear they go from the Dolomites one second to snowy, forested segments in the next. The whole premise of the movie is so preposterous that I guess you are supposed to be distracted from all the other errors. I did like watching Stallone muscle his way up the cliffs though!

Voted 3/5

I really liked all the beautiful scenery, but the plot was a bit much for me. It was made well, but the writer took to much creative liberty with a lot of it. The acting was average, and the action non stop.
