What a Thriller
14 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie , and I only saw it the one time, I was highly intoxicated with placidyl and early times but I have remembered it through out the years as one of the best pictures that I have ever seen. Though high I remember quite a bit of the story and plot. When I saw it, I had been at the set of a movie called Steel that was filmed somewhat in Lexington ,KY with Lee Majors, and one of the stunt men was killed in a fall scene.That stuck with me, and when I saw Green Ice it all returned, and at the time that I saw GI I felt as though that it was me dangling on the end of that rope when they were making their escape. It is a movie that I will always remember and wish that I could see it just once more in the state that I was in when I first saw it!
