2012 Ski Movie Reviews: Freeski-Crew – Dynamite
The Austrian Freeski-Crew takes a season of deep powder turns, massive booter sessions, road trips (RV-style), and urban- and backyard-style jibbing and whirls the content into the fun-filled mixture that is Dynamite. While names like Althammer, Fürsthaller, Färber, Gassner, Geyer, Göller, Guggemoos, Hartmann, Höflinger, Jenny, Nigg, Obwaller, Ritsch, Schneider and Trifonichev might not be of the household designation, these guys are capable of throwing down impressive stunts, the likes of which captivate any enthusiastic park skier for the duration of the 22-minute-long film. We get urban action in the streets of historic European cities, a session at Whistler Blackcomb’s storied parks, deep powder in Pemberton and at Revelstoke and Red Mountain, and more. The crew also pays homage to its Austrian heritage, shredding for a brief segment in traditional garments. Have you ever seen anyone throw a cork 9 tail in lederhosen? You have now. There’s also a bit of good ol’ male nudity scattered throughout. Ah, Europeans…
The booter sessions, which comprise the film’s closing segment, are perhaps the highlight of the production. The crew takes on massive, masterfully sculpted kickers at Stubai, Kitzbühel, Kronplatz, Sölden, Alta Badia and Schnalstal, throwing down hard. Not to mention, there are a handful of radical heli shots in the mix. To sum it up, it’s a mix of great skiing, well shot, and well edited. You won’t see anything groundbreaking, but you certainly won’t have a bad time hangin’ with the Freeski-Crew.
