3 June 2003 | by Rob PaulSee all my reviews

Chill Factor has little originality, with sloppy direction, and a straight to cable feel.

The only thing that kept me watching was counting how many times the main characters uttered the words 'Oh S***' - if you ever watch it, you'll be surprised by how often the writer relies on these words to convey 'fear/tension/disbelief'. My own thinking was that the actors realised just how bad the movie was and threw in double the amount of 'Oh ****' as the script originally had!
