Editorial Reviews

INTER SCI climatologist David Koch (Jeff Fahey) has evidence that a shift in the Earth's polarity triggered the last Ice Age…in a single day. Now, it's happening again, and there's no time to escape. As the temperature plummets, Miami is blasted with snow and ice. Evacuation routes are jammed. The only chance David, his old flame Bryn (Erika Eleniak), and a few other hopeful survivors have is to hole themselves up in a special chamber at INTER SCI. A desperate race for survival is ignited as nature's fury rages and the temperature plunges toward -459.67° F...ABSOLUTE ZERO!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Awe Cheezed" January 6, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie reminds me of the first science fiction movies produced in the 50's when cardboard props swung from visible strings. It is, by far, my favorite film. From phony looking props, backgrounds, and atmospheric phenomena, to award-removing scripts, soundtracks, acting, and production, this film is, by far, the best warm pile I have ever stepped in. My favorite scene is when the older scientist falls on the soft snow in a cave during a tremor. The ground shifts just enough to make him lose his balance, he gently falls to the floor, and he is left sitting upright with a small scratch on his forehead that suprisingly enough, kills him a moment later. Then, the main character, in a feable attempt to express his utter devastation over the loss of his best friend, an otherwise undeveloped friendship until this moment, puts on his most insincere facial expression as he says, "Awe cheezed" or was it, "Awe geeze", or maybe "I cheezed", all of which seemed as inappropriate as the massive head injuries sustained by his beloved friend, and mentor. I would like to thank the producer for missing this flurb, for it has given my girlfriend and I a stress relieving catch phrase we use in response to life's many aggrevations. So America, when life throws it's worst at you, curl your nose and form the most unattractive facial expression you can muster up, and say, "Awe cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezed" hahahaha.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Good choice for "Bad Movie Night" February 8, 2007
Format:DVD
I love end of the world disaster movies. This one ranks as the most scientifically inaccurate one I've ever seen. My husband, a former 8th grade science teacher, decided if he ever goes back to teaching, he'd have his physics class watch this movie as a final exam and write everything that's wrong with it. I think they'd need a full 24 hours... (Someone freezes as the "absolute zero" cold approaches, yet someone else maybe 30 feet away is perfectly fine?) It's good for a laugh, and the acting isn't as bad as a lot of these movies. I'd recommend this to a group of college friends who plan to have a couple drinks and make fun of the movie. This ranks about equal with Solar Attack, and I'd say it's better than Dean Cain's Post Impact.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Boredom. July 5, 2007
Format:DVD
Absolute Zero is a disappointing ripoff of The Day After Tomorrow. The characters are insufferable. The hero scientist spent the first 1/3 of the movie discovering the oncoming ice storm, the middle third trying to convince people it was coming, and the last 1/3 outrunning it.

While trying to warn Miami of the pending big freeze, the scientist meets his long-lost love, who's married to someone else. Her husband conveniently gets knocked off. How better to provide the proverbial "happily ever-after" ending? Neither the daughter nor the wife shed a tear for his death, but they do stop running long enough to say, "Gee, I miss Dad", to which the wife replies, "Me too, honey." This is followed up by some serious, heartfelt sniffles and a painful narrowing of the eyebrows.

And the tension keeps on mounting...

Every movie needs controversy...so, the writer tossed in a nasty tempered corporate executive who values money over human life. No cliché there, right? For extra romance we're given two college students who exchange boring and obnoxiously unfunny quips with the other.

Ho-Hum. Who needs sleeping pills?

Maybe I missed something. Within moments after the killer storm put Miami into the deep freeze, a rescue helicopter appears in the building's skylight. It's come to save the scientist and his group. Two questions. Why didn't the skylight and the helicopter freeze like everything else outside? How did the helicopter know where to find them? Maybe I dozed off when that part was explained.

Oh, well. I really don't care. I didn't care that those who died, died, and those who lived, lived.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! July 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sure, it's a low-budget, campy movie...but that's what makes it great! Good acting, bad dialogue, and special effects. Definitely a must see if you like low-budget sci-fi movies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another one for Mystery Science Theater 2000 November 30, 2006
Format:DVD
I actually enjoyed watching this movie...I like very bad movies. The acting level was about on par with the scientific accuracy, pretty much non-existant. The only fact they got straight was that the magnetic poles did, indeed reverse about 10,000 years ago. I could fill up pages with what they got wrong. Disaster movies don't have to be scientifically feasible to work, but enough factual base to give it that "yes it could happen" twist does help. This movie might as well have claimed that the reason the tropics were about freeze to absolute zero was because giant extra-terrestrials with Co2 fire extinguishers were spraying from space so they could go ice-skating around the planet.

If you enjoy a movie where you find yourself hoping the main characters don't survive to reproduce and you gleefully wonder why you enjoy wasting so much of your time on it, this is a good one to check out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible December 14, 2008
By D12
Format:DVD
Terrible Movie...I Wish I could return it and get my 5 dollars back. The fact that it's low budget is not even an excuse. The acting is beyond bad and the story line is terrible.

-One of the main characters loses her husband in a phony... unreal tragic scene and she barely sheds a tear. I stress {A TEAR} literally.

-The main scientist/lead actor is in some ice cave at one point that is several hundred feet below the surface and his friend is killed...At this point you figure the main character is trapped with ice falling and the cave that he was in was caving in. You'd think the director would use this window to thrill us on how the scientist managed to get out of such a tough situation. Nope. As soon as the friend dies, they cut to the next scene where the scientist is in some lab doing test. This left me wondering for the rest of the entire movie.. HOW DID HE GET OUT OF THAT SITUATION?

It's like if you were watching a movie based on a plane and the bad guys were killed, but the plane is flying unmanned. You would want to know how the hero landed the plane. It would be a huge let down for the hero to kill all the bad guys and then the next scene is the hero at the hospital receiving minor medical treatment. You want to see how the hero landed or escaped the unmanned plane scene.

- Irony- The lead scientist is concerned about the Earth's polarity, the temperatures, and global warming. His concerns are so great and deeply rooted that he drives around in a Hummer (H2) getting 9 mpg while emitting 3.4 metric tons of carbon emissions per year. Yes this scientist is really concerned about the earth.

-As temperatures reach absolute zero--The cast is running towards a safe room that is suppose to protect them.
