A mediocre film about a climbing adventure gone wrong and the countless lives that were sacrificed to save poor little Annie, that is what I wasted two hours of my life on. WHERE WAS THE PLOT! WHERE WAS IT! So predictable and so shallow. It was the classic, rescue mission movie. It's dangerous, people will die, the hot girl always lives, everyone's favorite characters die, the just get there in the nick of time, and then more things go wrong! BUT, I do have to give the writers credit for the nitro reaction in sun concept, that was not predicted. I thought the bombs were just highly unstable and could go off at any time; a slight curve ball for viewers. As for the characters in the movie, Peter and Annie were pretty basic. Peter has to sacrifice dad, Annie can't let that happen, big Peter killing dad tension between siblings; child's play. Of course Peter gets with the hot blond at the end even though they really only said like 5 words to each other throughout the whole movie and shared a lovely finger snapping scene together. Montgomery died, Aussie bros died (all pot head do in movies), and the Muslim guy died. Oh yeah, and Tom, but he was just kind of there as another dead body to put in the movie. So it only took like 4 rescue crew members to die until Annie could be saved (all hail Annie). Vaugh's death though was pretty nice in my opinion, his character counts for at least one of these stars because I did not see that one coming. I knew the dude was unrealistic and selfish, but a murderer?! He is one bad apple! He let Montgomery's wife die and shot an air bubble into Tom, dude knows how to do natural selection. I was impressed, but extremely saddened by his death. Also, another whole star in this impressive 2.5 rating is the special effects. Sure I could do some of those myself but they were pretty good for 2000. They really made the countless number of near death scenes really worth it in the end. Overall decent movie with a few unpredictable things, but for the most part it seemed like a really basic plot with the whole "dad tension" being exploited.

While not quite having its moments, Shock Treatment is only interesting because it has Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray,Nell Campbell(my fave and she is hot as a nurse), and Patricia Quinn. Where Rocky Horror is totally classic and seemingly breakthrough, this just falls on its face. Something about a game show involving newlywed couples. Good thing Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon steered clear of this mess. Some people think that this is cultish in its own right, I don't. Shock Treatment should only be seen just to see how the Rocky Horror magic was not carried over for another go.

Robert Redford and Gene Hackman give fantastic performances. The script is well written. Michael Ritchie did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama. Downhill Racer is a must see.
Tim H (kr) wrote: Major Spoilers Ahead Ahh. So much I love and hate about this movie. Okay, "love" and "hate" are both such strong words. It's far closer to "like" and "dislike." I mean, this movie really does toe the line of absolute classic in many respects, but there's just so many safe moments that stop thing movie from becoming truly great. I guess the first thing that I should really address is Barbara Stanwyck. Now, I've liked her in other things. She's never been my favorite actress and I think I have discovered why. She is always pretty solid when it comes to playing intense. Luckily, most of The Furies is about intensity. (I mean, look at the title. The metaphor isn't exactly lost on me.) But it's those moments of happiness that really kill me. She can't fake laugh to save her life. Honestly, it's like pulling teeth at times. Luckily, her life isn't that awesome. For a good chunk of the movie, I was thinking that I wasn't going to be all that interested in the film. It really reminded me of Duel in the Sun in many fashions. I wasn't the biggest fan of Duel in the Sun, althought the film does have my respect. But it really starts shaping into this romance. Now, I have no problem with romance. I am a big sappy pushover at times. I'm also no stranger to frontier romance. I can totally dig it. But this is a romance that is just kind of lame. We have this strong woman (saw it in Gone With the Wind; liked it there) who is torn between this complete douchenozzle (accurate expression) and has this other poorer suitor who is as great as they come. She's very cold with the poor guy because she's kind of a rich b*tch, but that aspect is downplayed a bit. But she falls head over heels for the other guy, who is a jerk to her and she's warned against. All this I find dull and a little whiny. I am glad that the movie turned around. About halfway through the movie, the story gets to be fantastic and riveting. I don't mind all that buildup if the story starts to get great. And that it does. I am on the edge of my seat for a good chunk of it. But then the end. That miserable end. WHAT. THE. HELL. Oh, I'm not talking about the absolute end. The last minute or so is the only that stopped me from going totally homicidal on the film. But this is a vengeance story. Now, I don't mind someone changing their mind about vengeance or realizing that the vengeance won't tame the hatred in their soul. No. But I do hate when everyone forgives each other and goes out for cake and ice cream afterwards. I'm sorry, but it is a weak choice. I've seen Anthony Mann films before and their usually much more ferocious than what I saw. I understand that the idea was that the character was only happy with his daughter when she was independent, but that is absolutely lame. It seemed like the story went from 0 to 60 on a dime. That's lame. That's very lame. This movie could have been a classic, but that moment felt so cheap to me that I could only review this movie for the riveting premise that got me enthralled to begin with. When it comes to Western action, I guess this movie has that. There's a pretty cool shootout that has dynamite involved. That's as cool as a shootout can get. I'm not saying that there's gonna be guns blazing in this movie, but it does meet the general needs of the common Western. The way that it is shot is mostly pretty fantastic. I'm not going to say that there is anything that is too breathtaking about the filming. There's some pretty decent tension built up at times, but realize that this is one of those family romantic dramas. Really, this is more Jane Eyre than it is Rio Bravo. Like I said, this movie is close to being a classic. There's just a huge flaw to the movie and that is the cheap Hollywood ending. I wish this movie took a risk, but at the end of the day, the most risk you'll get is someone throwing a pair of scissors.

Painfully simplistic back-stories are paved for the supporting cast without contributing much to main plot. DC Animation has done much better than this...
