Well, with this being a TV movie in mind, then "Ice" wasn't actually
all that bad. But it was no "The Day After Tomorrow" either, although
it essentially is the same.
Storywise, then "Ice" did prove to be entertaining enough, although the
movie was somewhat suffering from being predictable and stereotypical.
But take it for what it is, and the movie is fun and enjoyable in
Effect-wise, well then "Ice" doesn't impress. The CGI were adequate
enough, but what made the movie suffer was the horribly fake movie snow
that was used in almost all scenes that involved snow, and the equally
fake ice walls shown in the crevasse. It was so fake that even a blind
person would point a finger and laugh. Seriously, despite being from
2011, the effects were better than such even back then.
As for the people on the cast list, well they did good enough jobs with
their given roles. People brought a good amount of enthusiasm and
energy to the movie and their characters, which made the movie turn out
to be more enjoyable.
A lot of the scenes towards the end of the movie was starting to become
too much, especially the amounts of snow that apparently had fallen in
record time, and the degrees that they said were outside, yet the main
characters were able to withstand that cold in thin clothing, and not a
single hint of ice on their bodies. It was like time was running out
and they had to wrap up the movie fast and efficiently. And that just
made it seemed rushed and not believable in any way.
"Ice" does manage to raise something interesting to think about, such
as man's constant quest for fossil fuel, man's disregard for the
ecology of the world in which we live, and the heartless nature of the
corporate giants. If you are one of those environmental concerned
people, then this movie does manage to plant a seed for thought. So
"Ice" does entertain and leave you with something once the end credits
start to roll.
