Good Enough to Watch Again Sometime

6/10 Sometimes, I'll watch a movie because of who is playing a main character. And I don't mean I'm looking for any of the "usual suspects." I mean I want to watch an actor I see in movies, but who often seems to have some secondary role. Dominic Purcell's name caught my eye in this one.

TV roles are all well and good, but it is often refreshing to see such an actor play the lead or a main role (Bryan Cranston in Cold Comes the Night is another example). Here, Purcell plays a part with little need for drama, and little opportunity to demonstrate acting talent. To be fair, that was his character here, but the movie was still an enjoyable semi-action flick. The plot is tied into the 1962 Cuban Missle Crisis, but only tangentially. The Sci-Fi aspect overwhelms any real historical theme. And the plot-twist has so many clues dropped that it seems like a made-for-TV movie.

Regardless, the movie held my attention and Purcell's adequate performance was well supported by Michael Ironside and Adam Beach (who must unfortunately play the native American with an alcohol history stereotype).

As an aside, the movie might have been better if Purcell's character had developed more of a romantic interest in Camille Sullivan's character, or if the characters of the super soldiers (especially No. 1) had been fleshed out some more. eg. "bad ass wakes up after 50 years and his mission seems a little stale in a completely changed world." As it is, they come off as new Rap music fans who want to have sex with the first woman they lay eyes on.

No academy award winner here, or even high action, but still a fair watch for a story requiring little mental effort.

Second-hand Snowy Action

4/10 4.25 of 10. It's hard not to like a film that makes a scientist an action hero. Unfortunately, beyond that and some impressive snow action and chases, this isn't a breath of cold, fresh air.

The film is weighed down far too much by melodrama and action cliches while the science fiction elements are soft and rarely explored like the surrounding snow. It's too bad because there is an interesting plot setup.

If you don't mind "pro" wrestling fight scenes mixed with your action and and non-sequiturs in your science fiction, you might be able to enjoy this. I'd rewatch Colony instead if your looking for Wintery sci-fi.

Preposterous But It Held My Interest

5/10 In this B-movie sci-fi thriller, I found the plot elements just got too preposterous for me, but it did hold my interest throughout, so I would say it served as an escape flick. Just to mention, there's plenty of killings and mayhem along the way here, with few characters spared the carnage.

The story centers around 3 boys programmed genetically by a Nazi scientist, in the early 1940's, to obtain superhuman capabilities, but also to act as virtual "killing machines". When the war ended, the Russians got a hold of them, and trained them for a terrorist attack in New York City, in 1962, while America's attention was completely focused on the Cuban Missile Crisis.

However en route to their mission, their plane crashed in the Canadian Artic, and they were taken as patients to the Northgate base some 70 miles away. They quickly recovered and ended up killing 25 people at the base, leaving only one survivor a female doctor, who was raped and assaulted. They then disappeared into the frozen Artic tundra, never to be heard from again.

Now some 50 years later, Dr. Andrew Malraux, portrayed by Dominic Purcell (Assault on Wall Street) has come to the Northgate camp to try and somehow find the bodies or traces of the 3 assassins. His expedition is sponsored by IV Industries, who led by their R&D head Jane Frazer, played by Camille Sullivan, will surreptitiously be looking for oil while they're there.

Dr. Malraux finds the 3 frozen bodies of the assassins in an ice cave, and they're taken back to the base camp again. You can pretty much guess what mayhem is going to follow here. I guessed the twist ending about 2/3rds of the way through the film, and in retrospect I should have figured it out earlier.

All in all, as mentioned if you don't mind the violence, some nudity at a strip club (yes, even in the Artic), and some preposterous plot elements you may find, as I did, that you will be somewhat absorbed and interested in how it will all end.

Good story, average movie

4/10 Okay, it seems that there is no need to give a summary of the movie, since it has already been supplied by other reviewers.

To me, the story was quite interesting, but the movie could have been much more better. Elements of an action movie was all around, but there was not much elements of science fiction, although the movie itself is a science fiction movie because of the story.

In overall, it is an OK movie that you can enjoy anyway.

I want to mention the mistakes that I have noticed:

At 29:06, Colonel gives an instruction to Sergeant and Sergeant repeats it to the radio by yelling "You heard the man...". However, there is no way that anybody could have heard the man, because Colonel was not talking to the radio but directly to Sergeant. In fact, throughout the movie, only thing that Sergeant does to repeat Colonel's orders by yelling "You heard the man..."

At 01:16:21, super soldier kills all the people in a hall with a single magazine, in automatic suppressive fire mode, which is hardly possible.

At 01:18:24, Malraux shoots at the truck carrying super soldiers with a Beretta 92 and hands gun over to TC when he arrives with snowmobile, by saying "You shoot, I'll drive". At 01:18:30, the gun turns into a Glock, which TC collects at the explosives cabin at 01:13:72, just before they get caught by police.

May contain spoilers

4/10 Seems like the Russians were working on their own Captain America-like super soldier program during the 1950s. 3 of these ubermench, looking suspiciously like Hitler's concept of the Aryan blonde haired, white skinned superman, are on a mission to attack sites in America during the pre-occupation with the Cuban missile crises. Their plane crashes, they go into a form of suspended animation, some scientific exploration team stumbles upon them, wakes them up and all suffer the final fate... except the lone female scientist. The Russian superman who rapes her lets her live, no doubt so that he can come back for seconds....

The film now jumps 50 years to the present day, in which events seem to repeat themselves.... with a few twists...

It's not a terrible movie. I've seen worse acting, worse plot-lines etc. At the same time it is nothing to write home about. If you're bored and want to see some mindless mayhem, a few strippers, and a little Greek tragedy, this will do the job...

Or to put it another way, Michael Ironside's SCANNERS was an original masterpiece compared to this latest film.

You say: toe-mah-toe; I say toe-may-toe!
