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 »
Easily one of the worst movies of all time. I'm understating it. This is the kind of bad that causes you to pause the movie so you can call your friends and tell them you are watching the worst movie in the world! Which is, of course, the very reason I loved it. I couldn't shut it off. The script is shameless, "releasing magnesium payload from high-altitude balloons..." This movie had me the whole way. You couldn't make this movie up. A killer cloud of ice, people freezing to death all over the place. A small fire that keeps the whole house from freezing and killing everybody in it. The fearless refusal to confront the obvious contradictions in the story; such as, the ability to go outside when necessary to get medicine and the ability to outrun the killer cloud by foot, when appropriate. This is a movie for the ages. Its a topical film that is all around brilliant in its ability to make you watch because you can't believe your eyes. You know its getting worse and you can't wait. If you love bad movies you need to see this movie immediately. Right now, today. Arctic Blast is easily one of the worst movies of all time. No question about it. Run out and see it today.
