Nothing outstanding here...
1 March 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Well, granted my expectations for the 2002 movie "Deep Freeze" weren't particularly high when I happened to find the movie in 2020. I had never heard of the movie, nor of the people on the cast list.

But still, if I haven't seen a movie and I am given the chance, and the movie seems like it might have potential, then I will sit down to watch it. So I did with "Deep Freeze" from director John Carl Buechler.

Turns out that this was an action horror movie that felt like something left over from the late 1990s - it had that particular feel to it, for better or worse.

"Deep Freeze" wasn't a particularly impressive movie. Sure, it was watchable, but it was by no means an outstanding or overly entertaining movie. It was generic and predictable, and the creature design was dubious and questionable at best.

The acting in the movie was as to be expected for a movie such as this.

My rating of "Deep Freeze" is a mere four out of ten stars. Hardly a movie that you should rush out to watch, nor a movie that you should put at the top of your to-watch-pile of movies.
