  • 1 star "This is a great example of a movie gone horribly wrong. Nonsensical and disjointed story line, poor acting, and stupidly long made this nightmare unbearable. I think as punishment for all those involved - it would be good to have them see the film for a week straight. There would be no better justice! Save yourselves - avoid at all costs."
  • 2 stars "I'd give it a C-minus..Beautiful scenery but that's about all..Totally confusing concerning the plot, hard to follow...I'd say its a waste of money."
  • 5 stars "I can't believe this got fair reviews and It got great reviews. This is by far the better movie, beautiful winter scenes, and a better more involved plot!!"
