Storyline

INTER SCI climatologist Dr. David Kotzman has evidence that a shift in the Earth's polarity triggered the last Ice Age...in a single day. Now, it's happening again, and there's no time to escape. As the temperature plummets, Miami is blasted with snow and ice. Evacuation routes are jammed. The only chance David, his old flame Bryn, and a few other hopeful survivors have is to hole themselves up in a special chamber at INTER SCI. A desperate race for survival is ignited as nature's fury rages and the temperature plunges toward -459.67° F...ABSOLUTE ZERO! Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Did You Know?

Goofs

When Miami is being evacuated heavy traffic is seen moving in both directions on the freeway. In an evacuation like this incoming lanes of traffic on the freeway would be closed and used for cars leaving the city. If the city is being evacuated no one would be allowed to enter the city anyway. See more »

Absolute Zero was the quality of this movie
8 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bad acting, painfully corny dialog, low-budget special effects and just plain bad research makes this movie an absolute zero. The whole premise makes no sense....that shifting magnetic poles would create a zone of -459F degree temperatures from 30 degrees north to 30 degrees south. First of all, absolute zero is not even possible -- all molecular movement would stop. Even outer space is 3 degrees above AZ. Secondly, why their lab is the only place in this belt safe from the iron grip of AZ is never explained....nor why, seconds after AZ is reached, a helicopter suddenly appears through the (hitherto non-existent) skylight windows. Also, I guess the producers don't know that stations east of the Mississippi start with W and west of the Missisippo, with K. The continual "newscasts" from Miami news station KNOV showed the ignorance of the writers and lack of continuity.

Throw in a student who is suddenly an expert in building computer controls; a insipid re-sparked love interest between Fahey and Eleniak; and a painful scene involving space suits and an outside catwalk; and you get the picture why this was more of a comedy than an scifi/action flick.
