When the bomb is set on the cable-car, Greig tells Meg that she has only 4 minutes until the bomb goes off. Yet when one of the terrorists sets the bomb, it clearly says 2.20. Seconds later, the bomb is seen again, only this time the bomb reads 3.45 as if it's counting down from 4 minutes which it clearly was not. See more »

The Ice Never Melts. There Is Just No Heat Here.
7 November 2003 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

Ski patrol officer Sean Astin tries to save the day, his parents and his girl from an evil and deranged madman (Hollywood goof-ball Bruce Campbell) who has a nuclear device at a winter resort. Campbell leads some crazed terrorists in the venture and the only one who can save the group of hostages is the baby-faced Astin. Stupid and unintentionally hilarious venture for all involved as Campbell steals the show (as he usually does in sorry ventures) as a comical and bald-headed villain that will make you think of him as a very poor man's Gene Hackman from "Superman". Nothing really to recommend. Might have camp value for some, but that does not endear it. Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
