Average movie. 6 out of 10. Great graphics, bad story, bad ending, waste of time and good actors. Big screen special effects. Watch it only if you have already watched The core and Armageddon or better yet wait till it comes out on cable.
So I went out and watched the movie for the soul purpose of writing it here for you - the informed movie go-er to read.
The movie starts out pretty normal with a kind a The Core or Armageddon feel to it. Then a half an hour into the movie the lead actor decides that he is going to save his son who is in new york. While at the same time everybody else in the whole entire world (especially in north america) freezes to death. And that's the movie in a nutshell there is nothing else to it. No drilling to the center of the earth, flying into outer space, scientific mombo jumbo or a nuclear device of any kind.The movie is a first grade science class, nothing is really solved in the end except the fact that all the stupid people in the whole die. Little conflicts develop, love tri-angles, sick boy, wild wolves and girl specks french with cut leg. There are 4 high points in the movie and great special effects including; rain, tornados, hail and stupidity. Definitely not worth the price of the movie ticket and probably not even the dvd.
But if you choose to walk from Washington dc to the new york city library in the snow, dragging your friend (who has passed out because of the cold) in order to save your son then your guess is as good as mine.
