Eco-Terror Film With Muddled Message, 3 October 2012
Author: LeonLouisRicci from United States

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.
