As Extreme Everything has been on screens lately, it has got to be difficult to "one-up" some of the other titles. Perhaps that's why the creators of Extreme Ops made the decision to go "one-down" instead by replacing the usual cardboard heroes with more believable characters.

Extreme Ops

Most of the amazing stunts in this film are done without using special effects. Obviously stunts in a movie like this pose great risks unless you are a professional taking the appropriate precautions. (Even then, Werner Koenig, a producer and professional skier, was killed in an avalanche during location scouting for this movie.) The website, http://extremeopsmovie.com, provides extensive detail of all the rigging and safety equipment required to create the many heart-pounding shots in this film. Also note that many of the activities depicted (like boarding on top of a train) would be illegal in reality.
