4.0 out of 5 stars Flash frozen April 14, 2011
By Einsatz
Well, I'm almost certain the science is suspect, most what-if stories are. I didn't mind that. The plot is pretty standard: smart scientist (Michael Shanks) identifies a problem, there's a pompous boss (Bruce Davison) who discounts it. The problem becomes undeniable. They need a solution. Smart guy has it, stupid boss wants it done his way, he's wrong.... They even threw in the prerequisite global warming rant. AND! The poor scientist/hero is beset with an overwhelming number of things to deal with besides the impending DOOM; as in wife and daughter problems and the aforementioned dope of a boss. There's even more than that but even with complications, this is not a complicated disaster flick. It is what it is, there is a whole genre of like movies (most of which I have in my collection: Absolute Zero & the Day After Tomorrow for example). I love disaster movies, even though they are by nature unrealistic. That's exactly why I love them. They are beyond the worst case scenario. They are THE END OF THE WORLD! And then some. This neatly falls into that category. Is it a good movie? Of course not. Did I like it? Yes. It's a keeper. I can easily watch this stupid movie multiple times. If you like dopey/bad disaster movies you might like this. I paid 10 bucks for it and consider that money well spent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chrystal blue persuasion September 4, 2011
This is a Standard disaster formula story with the standard disaster formula characters and the obligatory premise introduction. Yep we destroyed the ozone it was the only thing protecting us from the coldest place on earth (fifty to a hundred kilometers above), well maybe with the exceptions of Jack's wife (Alexandra Davies) and Jack's brat (Indiana Evans.) Now toss in an eclipse and only Jack Tate (Michael Shanks) sees the "hole" problem and hopefully the solution.

In the end will they listen to jack's solution? In the end will they learn to work with Mother Nature? In the end will Jack's cutie co-worker, Zoe (Saskia Hampele) get Jack or be left out in the cold? Will we ever get tired of these mediocre disaster movies? (Not me)

3.0 out of 5 stars THERE'S A HOLE IN MY OZONE May 15, 2011
Take one brilliant scientist who detects a cataclysmic hole in the ozone but no one believes him;
Add a corporate exec who thinks he has a better solution;
Mix in the genius' estranged wife and teen daughter who thinks he doesn't pay them enough attention;
A dash of the dedicated assistant who suffers from diabetes and unrequited love for the doctor;
Place all ingredients in a fog shrouded enclosure and freeze for 90 minutes.
As in most "cautionary" tales, man conquers the elements. ARCTIC BLAST is okay but nothing extraordinary. Acting is average and the fog is fluffy if not especially ominous. If you don't expect too much, you shouldn't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic Diaster Movie February 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I always enjoy Michale Shanks, this was a good rainy day diversion movie. Interesting plot about the ozone layer, nice Australian shots for a change of pace from London or NY disaster movie locations. Overall, I would recommend this movie for a pleasant watching experience. Just understand that this isn't a high budget thriller and I think you will be satisfied with the results.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very much typical of it's type but not bad August 3, 2012
I got my copy of "Arctic Blast" in a Wal-Mart $5.00 bin so it wasn't a major investment. Most of the other reviews have given the standard information and I think they are accurate. The special effects are ok; fog isn't as scary as flooding water, or lava etc. but the movie does hold your attention while it goes through the standard low budget complications these movies share. One thing nice about it; it's filmed in Tasmania and Australia so the scenery being frozen is different. There are a few standard disaster around the planet shots, Big Ben, Golden Gate, etc. but most of the location work is a plus for being a bit different. I will watch it again some night when I can use a little arm chair adventure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Artic Blast a total waste November 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the worst movies I've ever seen and I love Michael Shanks, but he couldn't save this mess. I'm a diabetic so when they gave an insulin injection to a woman suffering from excessively low blood sugar, I was just shocked--that would kill you 100%! Did these people do no research for this film? Also, the special effects were terrible and there were so many plot holes that it was laughable. And that's what I mostly did--laugh my way through this horrible film. Do NOT waste your money on this junk. It wasn't even worth the $5.00 I spent on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars FUN FROZEN FLICK March 6, 2014

After re-watching Gordon Yang’s “Metal Tornado” I decided I needed to go back and watch another film he produced called “Arctic Blast”. This like the other is a disaster flick which has always been a style of film I have enjoyed. I really like them it seems if they are these SYFY Channel type B movies. Then of course my boy Michael Shanks stars here so that it a plus.

After a tear in the ozone layer opens up super cold mesosphere air leaks in and starts to spread across Earth. The chill is enough to kill instantly so physicist Jack Tait [Shanks] is on a mission to find a way to stop it and keep all he knows and loves safe. But with time running out as well as getting no help from city officials Jack may not be able to do a thing about it.

I had a feeling going in I would like this since Jason Bourgue wrote this who has written some good B stuff. He wrote the Lou Diamond Phillips starring “Metal Tornado” as well as a few films in the “Man eater Series”. He also directed the LDP starring “Termination Point” and speaking of directing I thought Brian Trenchard-Smith did a good job here. You might know him as the director of “Night of the Demons 2” and “Leprechaun 2 & 3”. These two together made for a really great TV flick on SyFy and along with a good cast I really enjoyed it.

Of course you know I loved my boy Michael Shanks in this as well as the rest of the cast. Plus it doesn’t hurt that I am a big fan of these end of the world flicks. I really wish more than anything we could have got a commentary on the DVD. With the director, writer, Shanks, any of them separately or together. Still regardless this was a fun flick that is a good waste of an afternoon.
