The Big Hit
There are scenes in "The Big Hit" that are so awful, they simply defy description. The movie is infected with the same kind of blunderheaded idiocy and misplaced confidence that made "Last Action Hero" (1993) such a chore to sit through. Presumably, "The Big Hit" is an action-comedy, a difficult but not impossible genre to pull off. Movies of this sort require a fine balance and careful tone, and ... ...

Colorado has experienced its deadliest avalanche accident since 1962.
Five members of a Colorado snowboarder group have been found dead under tonnes of snow following an incident which occurred on a high mountain pass in Colorado's White River National Forest.
CNN has reported a sixth member of the group survived by digging himself out of the snow.
He was the one to raise the alarm after hiking a few hundred yards to a road where he flagged down workers.
On Saturday search teams recovered the bodies from the avalanche scene at Loveland Pass, which is located about 50 miles west of Denver.
The snowboarders were hit by the wall of snow at an elevation of 11,990 feet.
They were all wearing avalanche beacons.
