Did You Know?


The HMS Fury was abandoned in August 1825 in Prince Regent Inlet between Somerset Island and the Brodeur Peninsula in the Canadian Arctic. Prince Regent Inlet was located in the British Arctic Territory, and today (as of 2012) is located in the Nunavut Territory of Canada. The HMS Heckla (named after the Icelandic volcano) survived the expedition and was sold in 1831. See more »


The name of Dean Cain's character is _not_ a composite of characters from the Superman mythos. He is supposed to be a namesake descendant of the real-life Sir James Clark Ross, who accompanied his Uncle John and Admiral William Parry on that ill-fated nineteenth century Arctic expedition aboard the ships Fury and Hecla.

Decent entry if not entirely stellar
3 April 2017 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

While searching for a long-lost ship in the Antarctic, a scientist and his research team stumble upon a giant creature made of ice that is responsible for his missing ship's fate, and after learning it's trying to steal their life-force must find a way of stopping the creature.

Overall this wasn't that bad of a film, although it does have some problems. One of the better elements here is the fact that when this one gets going there's some good action scenes and some nifty kills featured here. It starts off rather nicely, with the creatures' attack on the shipmates that gives this a nice opening, the eerie creature attacks on the workers down in the underground ice caves are quite decent and the creature running through the works while outside on the snowbanks are quite fun as the attempt to melt it leads to some really thrilling moments. The manner of it attacking the pilot of a departing helicopter gives this one another great battle, and the numerous attacks against it while the creature tries to break into the campsite provides some even more thrilling and engaging work as it observes some rather impressive action to not only fight it off but also engages in some rather fun behavior to learn more about it. The final half, from the full backstory about it's original intention to track it down and how it attacked the first crew which leaves this one with another stellar action scene, leads into the rather fun final confrontation which uses some innovative idea and brings some solid action along that ends this on a really nice note. Given the rather unique powers it displays throughout here, these here are what make for a fun time, although strangely you just don't care as much as you usually do about these kinds of films. The biggest issue against this one is the fact that the creature here is an utter joke and barely even registers as a threat. A large part of this is due to its ongoing mystery, as there's no backstory about it appearing here on Earth and causing havoc as there's nothing about what the creature is and why appearing on Earth is needed. There's some rather lame deductive reasonings thrown about, but none of it makes any sense in the context of what's occurred to allow them to make that leap and it just comes off rather stilted and troubling to get to that possible explanation. Likewise, there's also a complete lack of gore and violence in many of the kills as the creatures' method of draining energy from victims doesn't make for a lot of opportunities for gory kills, and when they do occur it's got all the usual Sci-Fi Channel complaints that apply here as well in terms of lousy CGI to complete them. These, along with a rather languid pace in the beginning as it takes a while to get the ship out of the ice and let the creature loose, are what really hold this one back.

Rated Unrated/R: Language and Violence.
