Storyline

The American oil company KIC Corporation is building an ice road to explore the remote Northern Arctic National Wildlife Refuge seeking energy independence. Independent environmentalists work together in a drilling base headed by the tough Ed Pollack in a sort of agreement with the government, approving procedures and sending reports of the operation. When one insane team member is found dead naked on the snow, the environmentalist James Hoffman suspects that sour gases may have been accidentally released in the spot provoking hallucinations and insanity in the group. After a second fatal incident, he convinces Ed to travel with the team to a hospital for examination. However, weird events happen trapping the group in the base. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Marketing Video: Alaska. Vast wilderness of the north. Land of great natural beauty and diversity. This is rugged county, land of black gold. Alaska's North Slope has been producing oil out of Prudhoe Bay since 1968, delivering to refineries and ports 800 miles to the south through the great Trans-Alaskan pipeline. But another northern region known as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge has remained untapped. Only once have prospectors gained access to this barren landscape. In 1986, KIK ...

Eco-Terror Film With Muddled Message
3 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that builds, quite effectively to a suspenseful setup and then, disappoints. This repeats a number of times until the end and then it really disappoints.

It's as though the Director knows how to create an atmosphere of apprehension but fizzles on the finish line every time. There is enough here to keep you watching but ends up being a frustrating film filled with an unresolved feeling and a wanting for some sort, any, explanation for at least some of what is happening. The final shot has to be one of the most bland, what the? finishes in film history.

Ambiguity is a fine thing and can foster thought and search for insight. But here we have an Eco-terror film with a muddled message and worst of all an unconvincing, unresolved plot that is neither a convincing thesis or an entertaining ride to the edge of the tundra.
