The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold, Jackie Dorsey is the daughter of 1992 Winter Olympics Gold medalists Kate Moseley and Doug Dorsey. She grows up with ambitions of winning her own Olympic gold but that ambition seems to come to an end when she has a career threatening injury. Enter Alex Harrison as her new pairs skate partner and a new chance at Olympic Gold. But can they set aside their stubbornness long enough to actually win the game?
It may not be a “gold medal” film, but it is still quite enjoyable
The big problem with this film is the title “Cutting Edge 2”. If it had only the second part for the title, “Going for the Gold”, there probably would not have been some of the negative comments. If a person is willing to take the film on it’s own merits and not compare it to the other “Cutting Edge”, it is a very good entertaining experience. There is a lot of fun in the male character and his reactions to figure skating. The whole sequence with the little girls teaching him to skate, while improbable, is fun. The way he pushes the former single skater to try new things is really great. He is the “Cutting Edge” that finally wins over the girl. He lives on the edge and teaches her to enjoy life and it’s challenges.
For the person who stated that the Olympice represented here were the Alberville, France games, they certainly did not pay attention to the film as it was clearly stated in a subtitle that the scene was in Turino, Italy.
It is so easy to be negative and be stupidly clever in making remarks that people forget to enjoy a rather fun film. It was simply meant to give an enjoyable experience and it certainly does that in spades. I enjoyed it and would recommend especially if you wish to follow each of the three films in this franchise
