Goofs

The premise of the movie is incorrect. The ozone layer blocks harmful ultraviolet light, which is a very important function to most life on this planet, but is not a barrier preventing the cold of the mesosphere from reaching the ground. Ozone is an oxygen molecule with three oxygen atoms rather than two, and the photochemical reaction of oxygen to ozone and back is what absorbs the UV wavelength energy. The ozone layer is between 12 and 19 miles above the earth, but if it were compressed to the atmospheric pressure at sea level, it would only be about 3 millimeters thick. The danger in a "rift" or hole in the ozone layer is rapid sunburn and possible genetic damage. During some years there is a hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica; during other years it isn't there, and during yet other years it spans the entire Antarctic. See more »

Don't waste your time
2 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was extremely disappointed with this movie. Basic common denominators were forgotten when making this film. ie. A vehicle will not start at - 100 especially if you live in a country where gasoline isn't treated to endure freezing temperatures. Also you could not brush the ice off a windshield.... You would be scraping a very long time; when it's cold you would see your breath; these are some basic but important realities that were totally overlooked in this film. I'm guessing the makers of this movie have never actually experienced living in a cold climate and understanding the reality of it. This movie was much too unrealistic and anyone thinking about watching it think again.
