“Pretty Good” is beyond that, it is darn good. Let’s get the most noticeable thing out of the way: there’s no big mountain footage here and yes, haters will bitch but so what? Norkunas and Pinnick at Rage have got everything else: back country, urban rails, pillows, sides of barns, night shoots, jibs, monster airs, you name it and what they do deliver they do well. Derek Spong lights it up with the smoothest execution out there. Rising stars like Gus Kenworthy and LJ Strenio kick out the jams while Rage staples Ian Cosco and Dylan Natale always deliver the footage. The soundtrack absolutely kills here too, running from moody dark pop to hip hop to reggae, the music’s vibe gets underneath the shots and totally elevates them. Who would have thought rail shots from a Minnesota night shoot could come to life in crazy ways but add Ladyhawke’s track “Magic” and its mesmerizing. Rage’s skiers hit it with attitude and combined with the artful direction and the tinted-color shots (check out either of the Mt. Bachelor sequences), “Pretty Good” makes for a gorgeous-looking action film that deserves attention. The Austin Powers tribute opening will crack you up too.
