  • At first it doesn’t even cross the three young people’s minds that they were abandoned and they assume that there was a technical problem with the lift
  • I guess most people would assume that a simple setting like that would cause the movie to border on excruciatingly boring, but funny enough, I found that I never once lost interest
  • It becomes even more interesting when we see the three main characters experiencing something called “the five stages of grief” once they realise that they really might be trapped up on the lift for the entire weekend

      Earlier on this year someone recommended that I watch the suspense movie “Frozen”, which was released in 2010. It took me nearly a week to watch it since I was constantly busy and when I was free I really wasn’t in the mood to do anything else but sleep, but when I finally got the chance to see it, I realised that while it wasn’t utter perfection, it kept me very entertained.

      This particular movie is not to be confused with the animated film that was released in 2013. This movie, which was released in 2010, was actually a thriller about three good friends trapped on a ski lift after the employees who were operating it forgot that they were on it waiting to be let down. The ordeal begins where the three friends, a girl and two guys decide to go


      for one last run in the evening when most of the skiers are going back indoors. They persuade the operator to give them one last run, but he soon hands the responsibility to another employee who after being informed of an approaching storm, completely forgot that there were supposed to be people still on the lift.

      At first it doesn’t even cross the three young people’s minds that they were abandoned and they assume that there was a technical problem with the lift. However, when they see the lights go out and they’re left there for hours they realise that they might be there for the entire weekend, especially with the approaching storm.

      The thing about this movie is that most of it takes place on the lift itself. I guess most people would assume that a simple setting like that would cause the movie to border on excruciatingly boring, but funny enough, I found that I never once lost interest. It becomes even more interesting when we see the three main characters experiencing something called “the five stages of grief” once they realise that they really might be trapped up on the lift for the entire weekend. I already mentioned their denial of the situation, but then they start blaming each other, one of them thinks he can probably jump down and try to get help, and then when all else fails the characters become depressed and then accept their fate.

      One of my favourite scenes in the entire movie would have to be during the bargaining stage where one of the characters feels that he can probably jump down from the lift and try to get help. Of course, they’re on the ...

      highest one, so we the viewers and the other two main characters realise that it’s an impossible feat, but he does it anyway and breaks his legs. The terror increases when he’s there for some time looking at his broken legs, in terrible pain and unable to get up when he is attacked and ripped apart by a pack of wolves.

      I didn’t have a problem with the acting, even though I thought that it was average at most and could have been a little bit better. However, I did think that the writing and the directing could have been improved most of all. A part from the fact that I wasn’t pleased with the dialogue; I also felt that there were many things in the plot that didn’t make sense at all. For example, there was the situation with the wolves,

      which I thought was a little hard to believe. I kept wondering, “Aren’t wolves territorial creatures?” “Why are they attacking them so randomly?” “How come the girl escaped at the end and the wolves didn’t attack her?” Another thing was that I came up with a million and one ideas on how they could get down from the lift, but the main characters just seemed to sit there and come up with the worst ideas or none at all. I still couldn’t believe that one of them decided to jump, instead of trying to climb from chair to chair first.

      Overall, as I mentioned the movie isn’t great, but it’s watchable. It will keep you mindlessly entertained on a good day if you decide that you’re not going to analyse it too much. I would recommend it to fans of B-rated thrillers.

I have heard my friends telling me what a great movie it is. I have not seen it myself, but the review helps me to see where my friends were coming from. I like this kind of movie and recommend it to anyone who wants this kind of action.

You should see this movie. It is amazing. I still want to shudder when I think of it. Such a terrifying movie. Not to do spoilers, but the wolves freaked me out
