Still shot from the movie: Extreme Ops.

Extreme Ops

As Extreme Everything has been on screens lately, it has got to be difficult to "one-up" some of the other titles.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

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.
