Storyline

INTER SCI climatologist Dr. David Kotzman has evidence that a shift in the Earth's polarity triggered the last Ice Age...in a single day. Now, it's happening again, and there's no time to escape. As the temperature plummets, Miami is blasted with snow and ice. Evacuation routes are jammed. The only chance David, his old flame Bryn, and a few other hopeful survivors have is to hole themselves up in a special chamber at INTER SCI. A desperate race for survival is ignited as nature's fury rages and the temperature plunges toward -459.67° F...ABSOLUTE ZERO! Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Goofs

The people who went out of the INTER SCI building should have been frozen solid since the temperatures were extremely low. Their suits were not enough to keep them warm and to insulate them from the extreme temperature. See more »

Quotes

David: Told you I didn't want any military at the test. You lied to me.
Dr. Veet: I think you misunderstood me, David. I agreed with you that Absolute Zero had no military consideration. I still believe that to be true.
David: Then why were they here?
Dr. Veet: Well, they're as interested in the weather as the rest of us, so why not take advantage of their very deep pockets for research and development, or would you rather I laid off some staff instead?

Hilariously Bad
1 October 2006 | by reo_ivSee all my reviews

I rented this gem knowing it was a Day After Tomorrow clone. I expected it to be campy and bad.

The special effects were hilarious and just bad. Some times it would be an entire CG shot that looks like some freshman's work with making a 3D model at art school.

Though the best part of the movie is the constant statement that "Science is Never Wrong." If I was playing a drinking game I would have been plastered by the end of this movie. Even the little kid in the movie said science is never wrong.

The physics in this movie are laughable at best. The idea that the last ice age started 10,000 years ago and lasted 1000 years is hilarious.

It was as if the writers, producers and actors couldn't be bothered to check a history book about the ice age anywhere.

Let alone the idea of absolute zero.

All I can say is they must have made this movie for what it was, a great no-brainer campy stupid flick.
