A device that controls a powerful Russian-made satellite weapon is stolen by Russian terrorists, who try to escape by flying out but are shot down. The device is now on top of K2. The device is still active and where it will strike is indeterminable. The good guys have to get to the device and deactivate it. Only trouble, it's winter and it'll be difficult to climb K2. A few of the best mountain climbers in the world are recruited to take techs who can deactivate the device to the top of K2. However, before the climbing party leaves, a team member dies, and it might not be natural causes. The group who stole the device might have someone on the team. But they still go on.

Not a sub par flick in my view, I really liked it despite some corniness
9 March 2017 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

John (Costas Mandylar) is one of the earth's top mountain climbers. He and a team which includes Kelli (Nia Peeples) love to scale whatever is hardest in the world. Yet, even he is not prepared for the US government to come calling for his help. It seems a Siberian "power cube" has been stolen and its destructive potential is enormous. Entire cities can be leveled by a push of a button. Fortunately, a plane that was carrying the cube out of the Russian wilderness was shot down in the sky. Now, guess what? The glowing golden cube is on top of K2 and its winter in the Himalayas. You guessed it, the USA leaders want John and his team to scale K2 under dangerous conditions and retrieve it before more damage can be done. Already, Havana is dust and rubble. Despite the tremendous danger, the team decides they will risk it for humankind. Will they be successful? Many viewers will probably agree with other critics, that this is a cheesy, low-budget, far-fetched thriller. OK, they are somewhat right. But, I still watched the enthralling climb to get this nasty little cube. Mandylar, Peeples and the others do quite well in somewhat stilted roles. This viewer especially liked Michael Ryan who played a cool, intelligent major. Naturally, the scenery is breathtakingly gorgeous while I found the story and production values more than adequate. Are you an armchair wannabe mountain climber who wouldn't risk the sport in the flesh? Sub Zero has some big vicarious thrills for YOU!
