Trivia

The HMS Fury was abandoned in August 1825 in Prince Regent Inlet between Somerset Island and the Brodeur Peninsula in the Canadian Arctic. Prince Regent Inlet was located in the British Arctic Territory, and today (as of 2012) is located in the Nunavut Territory of Canada. The HMS Heckla (named after the Icelandic volcano) survived the expedition and was sold in 1831. See more »

Goofs

The scientist suggests that "panspermia" explains that the organism got picked up from the atmosphere of one of the gas giant planets and carried to earth; that's not quite right, panspermia would be the theory that the organism got picked up from the atmosphere of one of the gas giant planets and carried to earth, and became the ancestor of all life on earth, which is obviously not the case in this movie.

Well, for a movie of this particular type and caliber, I have to admit that I have seen worse. That being said, I am not saying that "Frost Giant" is a movie that shines and is outstanding. But it is enjoyable in itself for what it is; a low budget Sci-Fi horror movie.

The story is about a strange celestial creature that brought about the demise of explorers aboard a ship named The Fury. A strange creature made from ice, a creature that feeds on heat. In present time, JC (played by Dean Cain) is at the autumn of his grant, running out of possibilities to find this eluding ship that is somewhere beneath the arctic ice. And as luck would have it, the expedition finds the ship, but finds what is buried along with it as well.

Storywise, then "Frost Giant" is adequate. Not the best and most brilliant of story lines, but still entertaining for what it is. It is a fairly generic and stereotypical build up of the story.

As for the acting, well people were doing alright with their given roles and characters.

The special effects... Well, they were there, but they weren't outstanding, nor were they particularly great. The creature itself was nice in design, but the concept of it being made of ice, yet feeding on heat, not really that thought through.

The title of the movie, now that I don't really understand. Giant? There was no giant here, and the creature was just a tad taller than a properly build adult male. I can understand the "Arctic Predator" title, but "Frost Giant"? No, not really.

"Frost Giant" is the type of movie that you watch once, most likely out of sheer boredom and because nothing else better is available. Then you quickly forget about it, never to watch it again...
