Entertaining
4 July 2011 | by frivolousfateSee all my reviews

This movie reminded me of 'The Day After Tomorrow' from the get go;It is a natural disaster movie. The setting/environment is a cold climate, covered in snow. The plot is different, but the basic idea is similar. Sure, the plot is quite predictable and it's not entirely 'believable' but no more so than most movies. The special effects were pretty good. The characters and acting were descent as well. No real complaints. I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are the type of person who will scrutinize over how plausible every detail is in reality you might not enjoy it as much. If you enjoy disaster movies, with good scenery, and go into it just looking for a little entertainment I suspect you won't be too disappointed.
