At a top secret facility on Alaska's the North Shore, one of the darkest secrets of the Cold War remains in storage. A substance recovered from a meteor, it has the same properties of anti-matter. Called ICE-10 is a dooms day substance that if released would start a chain reaction destroying the world. Created as a weapon of last resort, it was kept in the far north where the cold helped keep it under control. The deadliness of this material becomes evident when a military plane is dispatched to bring back a small amount for testing. When the plane crashes, the material escapes and an entire town in Northern Canada is wiped out. Written by randyrabituk

Did You Know?


Despite the filmed title being Super Tanker there is in fact no Tanker present.

The ship is in fact a Bulk Cargo Carrier designed to carry large quantity of small dry stores eg grain, ore, coal, cement etc as opposed to a Tanker which is a dedicated liquid carrier (usually of oil or petroleum products).

...yet oddly in the pre-sailing briefing the ship is correctly refered to the as a Bulk Carrier. See more »

User Reviews

Overall, a very decent achievement.
29 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As someone who loves Sci-Fi and who doesn't much care for the Sci-Fy channel's TV movies, I was very impressed to have my expectations upgraded slightly watching this film. The CG was certainly tolerable, acting considerably above what I expected, minus a few instances, and the music tracks were surprisingly well done to fit the scenes. Even the dialog was delivered believably in most instances. After having watched nearly 4-5 movies a week for almost 30 years I DO often judge books by their cover (Release information, budget and reviews included) when it comes to movies. Especially since IMDb came into existence. I gave it a 5 only because I remained interested the entire time and was actually surprised that I wasn't able to fully predict certain outcomes of various scenes.

It's not a smashing success but at least it doesn't insult your intelligence, make you squirm with eye-rolling incredulity, or bore you to the point of angry disinterest. It may be a 'B' film, yet it stands high on the shoulders of what is most often produced by the Sci-Fy channel. I would honestly recommend it for a rainy day.
