Review by Buzz McClain

A sexy young cast, fast sports action, thrilling set pieces, a dynamic techno score -- Extreme Ops has everything but a brain. It's a Labrador retriever of a movie, trying so hard to please as to drool all over the floor. The movie overall is not unlike the reckless, lovable members of the commercial cast, who think nothing of skateboarding on top of moving trains and snowboarding through the sky onto nightclub dining tables. But like an overeager dog, there's a certain charm that wins out, and when the film is over you come away thinking it wasn't half bad. Director Christian Duguay rightfully gets things moving early and only slows down for the slightest of expository reasons. Brain food? Hardly, but the action and stunts are what count, and they're terrific. A sequel wouldn't be odious.
