Storyline

Ten years after a covert military experiment on a remote Pacific island went wrong and killed eighteen servicemen and his assistant, Dr. Richard Long is still trying to forget the havoc that the experiment caused. Living in the small town of Jerome, Montana, Long still does scientific experiments at the local base, and he enjoys his time fly-fishing with Tim Mason, who works at a local diner. Long is visited by Colonel Andrew Brynner, a former military officer who took the blame and served ten years in Leavenworth Federal Prison for Long's experiment. Now a free man with a score to settle, Brynner has assembled a team of terrorists, including an icy blond named Vaughn. Brynner plans to steal and then sell "Elvis" -- Long's highly volatile, blue crystal substance -- to the highest international bidder. Unfortunately for him, Long, who gets killed, has already delivered "Elvis" to Mason, along with directions that the substance must remain below fifty degrees Fahrenheit, or it will ...

Trivia

The exterior diner scenes were filmed in the small town of Liberty, South Carolina. In real life, the diner is actually a wood shop and the $15/night hotel is actually a coin-operated washette. See more »

Goofs

During the mountain chase scene, the lead terrorist decides to fire on the fleeing heroes and he makes the comment "Get the M-79 ready, prep the launcher". However, the weapon he fires into the tanker truck is a shoulder mounted RPG or possibly a LAW (Light Anti-Tank Weapon). The M-79 that he referred to is actually a hand held grenade launcher.

2 men and an ice cream truck. Make that 2 men with an ice cream truck and a deadly radio-active bomb named Elvis.
26 August 2004 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

---Minor Spoilers---

Cuba Gooding Jr., and Skeet Ulrich star in this decent but funny action/thriller directed by Hugh Johnson. Cuba plays an ice cream delivery man named Arlo while Skeet plays as a connivance store clerk in Montana named Tim Mason. David Paymer plays a role at the beginning of the movie that lasts about 30 minutes and he plays the best friend of Mason who is a scientist named Richard Long.

The movie starts on an island in which some sort of military establishment is. Dr. Long is in charge of this radio-active bomb named Elvis that he's been working on for a long time. Him and his assistant decide to test it out but it goes all wrong and Long's boss comes in named Bryner. If the bomb were to reach 50º Fahrenheit, it would blow up and massacre anything in it's 5-mile radius, that exact radius of the island. The bomb reaches 50º, which must be the CHILL FACTOR and it blows up. 17 soldiers are severely killed and in the scientist shelter, the military boss, Long, and his assistant survive. Next scene, the boss is charged for all of it even though it was all Long's fault. The boss goes to jail for 10 years. Next scene, 10 years later, Bryner comes out and seeks revenge. Now in Montana, he assembles a small team of smart assassins to travel with him to avenge what Long did to him. Meanwhile, Arlo (Gooding) is doing a 4 AM ice cream shift and Mason (Ulrich) is doing a connivance store night shift. The assassins invade the research center of Long and he gets shot. Already some plot holes. Long barely makes it to Mason's store, almost dead while Arlo is there to deliver $400 worth of ice cream. Long tells his best friend that he's about to die and that he needs him to bring the remaining radio-active bomb that detonates at CHILL FACTOR to the military base. This time, this Elvis is much more stronger than the 5-mile radius one. Long said he needs Arlo's ice cream truck to keep the temperature down on the bomb. Long dies, and Arlo and Mason are off to put the bomb in its proper place with Arlo's ice cream truck while the assassins are on him. Thus concludes the first 35 minutes of the movie. Note that Arlo doesn't appear in the movie until 25 minutes in. The adventure (with this twisted plot) is on. Tensions flare, in comedy as Arlo wants to get the hell away from Mason and far away as possible but Mason threatens him with a revolver forcing him to continue driving during the early parts of they're trip. They soon find out that Bryner is on their tail and they have to improvise or die.

Overall, Chill Factor is a decent action/thriller with good comedy in it but somewhat fails to impress. Maybe it's the lacking, holed plot. Good effort by Cuba and Skeet though. If you got some time and you want a good buddy film, check this one out.

My Rating: 6.5/10 (A Mid 6.5)
