Out of the 5 or 6 ski films I have seen this season, I would say this is the film that made me say, WOW the most out of all of them. And when I watch a movie I look for that. Like I said before the only downfall for me would be the short length. I would like to add, if you are looking for a great ski movie, this would be my recommendation.
When I first turned it on, I was somewhat confused where the music was and what not, but I then realized the whole idea of the movie and thought it to be amazing. I thought that there could have been more bonus features but what can one do.
I got this movie free from Newschoolers, so therefore it was a great value. But if I was to purchase this movie I would say that it was a fantastic value. One because of the content, and two because of the story line. The only down fall was the length of this film. I thought it could have been much longer. But again, what can one do.
As I watched this film I was complete surprised. I found that the story line behind the whole thing was fantastic. Unlike some have said before they didn't like the whole global warming pitch but I thought that it was very affective. It made me really want to promote global safety on emmisions and what not. I thought it was the best movie I have seen this year.
Throughout this film the quality of the skiing was fantastic. I was utterly surprised by the significant amount of urban rails and the success. I personally think Frank Raymond slays so many rails that it is unbelievable. I again was amazed by the content of this movie. I think that Josh Bibby also threw down hard in this film. The nose butters were absolutely outstanding. Kid SLAYS.
Plehouse really threw down with this movie, but in a totally newschool way. The underlying theme for Save is global warming- throughout the movie they show quick shots of receding snowlines in the alps and himalayas, and at the end there are some basic facts on just how completely messed up our world is going to be if we don't fix things. The global warming stuff is not overdone; the majority of the film is still sick skiing, and all of the environmental content is smooth and "artsy". That said, the movie is still really different than the average new ski movie these days. While a lot of the new movies are focused on glamour and prestige (X-Games Fame, Jon-like Celebrity status, perfect snow and pristine tables), Save is much more down-to earth. While they don't mention it because that would be way too cliche', the movie is really more about skiers who love to ski, and want to keep this lifestyle alive. All this, and they still have room for some ill Octo-Grabs from Charles.
