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.

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".

CHILL FACTOR is one of those movies that you enjoy for its duration but does not live long in the memory.The main story takes a little longer than it needs to to get under way but once it does the movie races along to an exciting and dare I say suspenseful climax and emerges victorious as a pleasing and involving action flick. Skeet Ulrich and Cuba Gooding Jnr.,actors unfamiliar to me work well together as two likeable guys transporting some kind of explosive "macguffin" in an ice cream truck to protect it from psychopathic terrorists on their trail.The standout performacehowever,comes from Hudson Leick who portrays the villainous warrior woman Callisto on XENA WARRIOR PRINCESS.She plays the tough mercenary hench(wo)man to bad guy Peter Firth and she can play evil like no other actress around today;Leick can wither with a glance and helps make CHILL FACTOR a movie to seek out.More from her please.
