Goofs

When the bomb is set on the cable-car, Greig tells Meg that she has only 4 minutes until the bomb goes off. Yet when one of the terrorists sets the bomb, it clearly says 2.20. Seconds later, the bomb is seen again, only this time the bomb reads 3.45 as if it's counting down from 4 minutes which it clearly was not. See more »

Even if you are a Bruce Campbell fan, forget it.
9 September 2001 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

Let me start off by saying I am a huge Bruce Campbell fan. Almost everything he does is great entertainment. Things that come to mind are Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness, Brisco County, Xena, and even Jack of All Trades.

So when I saw Icebreaker was playing on Showtime, I thought it might be fun. I was disappointed. I am no movie critic, so let me just describe the movie as bad. Now, some Bruce Campbell movies, like Evil Dead II, are so bad that they are hilarious, and that makes them good. Icebreaker is just plain bad. The plot is silly, the dialog is uninspired, and even the action is tedious, that is, unless you really like skiing and machine guns.

It is a shame, because it looked like Icebreaker had a decent budget. I got the impression that about halfway through, everyone realized it was a dud, but they had no choice but to finish it. Next time, someone needs to read the script before they start shooting.
