I mean, don't expect me to grade this Wham! videoclip-turned-into-a feature length movie!!!...it's not funny, the story (story?!) is predictable, the characters are stereotypes, everything is basically fluff...and yet, I was fascinated by it.
It's an interesting peek into an era, the late 80s (bubble is coming!) when skiing was at its peak in Japan and the movie industry was dominated by the idol genre...
If I have to be completely honest though, the skiing scenes are impressive (by far…
The plot is thin and predictable (Indy Jones-like) but the spirit is very faithful to the original series, and surprisingly the CG works well, besides some stiffness in some of the characters. The gags, the funny parts, and the characterization (especially Letitia) were the highlights for me. The music and the action scenes were also positive. A decent film and a fun ride, particularly if you’re a fan.
