Even when you know what to expect, the movie was terrible
11 May 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from 100 Degrees Below Zero in the first place. And coming from somebody who's sat through a lot of The Asylum's movies and hated most of them with a few exceptions, I knew what to expect. Why do I keep watching The Asylum's movies if they are so bad?(a question I've come across countless times by those defending any of their movies) Because there is something compulsively watchable and (when they're not insulting your intelligence) entertaining about them. As said I knew what to expect from 100 Degrees Below Zero, but even that didn't stop me from thinking it was terrible. The scenery is quite nice, but because everything looks as though it was constructed in a haste and with no love I found that I couldn't enjoy it. The camera work indicates either inexperience or somebody who doesn't care at all about how the movie looks, while the special effects for the storm look like a very rushed last-minute job. Audibly, the movie is little better if at all, the sound mixing is murky, while the music is generic and sluggish in tempo, adding absolutely nothing to the atmosphere. Clunky is a good way of describing the dialogue though it's also too kind describing it too. It is also silly and awkward, structurally so thin you wonder sometimes whether there is even a script. There is nothing original in the story, I would forgive that if there was anything interesting in the telling of it but the complete lack of fun or thrills as well as the dull pacing indicate otherwise. The way the characters fall is also hilarious, unfortunately for 100 Degrees Below Zero I don't think that was intended. The characters are cardboard and you don't care for a single one of them. There are even some that are introduced but seem to be there for absolutely no reason. The acting is really poor too, Sara Makaul Lane is a slight bright spot but she is a long way from great and her character and dialogue shares much of the blame. Marc McKevitt Ewins is very wooden and bland in the lead role, and if you're going to use talented actors like Jeff Fahey and John Rhys-Davies at least give them something interesting to work with because they came across as wasted here. Overall, terrible, regardless of whether you're familiar with The Asylum or whether you know what to expect or not. 1/10 Bethany Cox
