Cheesy and enjoyable Schi-Fi Channel Creature Feature
Awakening from beneath the ice at a diamond mine in the Arctic, a vicious prehistoric creature runs rampant through the area that leaves a pair of truckers and a geologist as the only ones to stop it before it destroys all around it.
On the whole this one was quite a decent creature feature. One of the better features here is the usual amount of action scenes throughout here which has a great effect on this one in giving it a rather enjoyable pace. The fact that this one gets a lot of these scenes together is what works so well as the action starts in rather quickly with the mining excavation uncovering the creature and its' subsequent rampage across the work-station being an incredible opening as the creature charging through camp, slashing through bodies and wrecking the equipment creates a lot of great times to get this one going. The other big action scenes here are just as fun with the big one being the chase against the tankers out on the ice-road which is quite thrilling trying to use their truckers' tactics to get away with while the main factor of the film's action here is the big attack on the house. There's a lot of fun to be had from these attacks as it breaks through the barricades to get at them which is what generates the suspense and forcing them to find new ways to defend against it. This action also allows it the opportunity for a bit more gore than expected, as the opening massacre is basically ripping bodies apart while those at the house are a lot more varied which helps this one out with it's positives. There's not a whole lot here that hold it back, though they are pretty big. The biggest one here is the fact that there's very little about it's creature that works here, as there's the ever-present atrocious CGI that's present here for the creature that looks really bad throughout here. The digital pixilation for it during the attacks are quite obvious, and the fact that it repeats actions from elsewhere in the film that don't really match-up to their surroundings as well as changes dimensions constantly which throws it off even more. Likewise, the fact that it's origins are so confusing about what it really is and where it came from is all given away in one single throwaway line from a panic- stricken individual who never gets to finish it to provide the final clues. Beyond this, the only other feature here to drag this down was the unnecessary romance building at the very end when the point had already been made that they're attracted to each other which stops the film cold at that point. Otherwise, this one was quite enjoyable.
