A perfect storm of a film, where bad acting, bad writing, and bad directing come together to produce a surpassingly bad work. It’s actually difficult to fault the actors for what they’re given to say and do, and it’s a coin toss as to whether the dreadful dialogue or nonsensical action is worse. An absolute misfire, with no redeeming features beyond some beautiful Antarctic shots.
