5.0 out of 5 stars TOP NOTCH!!!!!! March 21, 2008
An outstanding piece of film making by Jim Wynorski, which sadly never made it to the theater where the big screen would have done justice to the mind blowing special effects. Costas Mandylor provides an electric performance as John Deckert, the man assigned by the US government to lead a team up the dangerous north face of K2. Nia Peeples provides the love interest and the on screen chemistry between her and Deckert is so alive you can taste it. The impressive cast also includes Linden Ashby, Michael Sunczyk, Jim Thorburn and Colin Lawrence. All in all this is a fast paced action thriller with plenty of unexpected twists and turns on the way. The climbing sequences are both accurate and believable and the breath taking mountain photography helps to make this picture both heart jumping and visually stunning.

4.0 out of 5 stars A high-tech thriller with a race to the top of the world November 23, 2005
A race against time to the top of the world, terrorists putting the lives of millions at risk, saber-rattling from all corners of the globe, and a looming high-tech disaster of epic proportions: all of this combined to spur my interest in this film. Subzero didn't play out quite as I expected it to, but overall it was definitely an enjoyable action thriller. I expected the bulk of the film to consist of our heroes' arduous climb to the top of K2 (on the border of China and Pakistan), and I was a little disappointed in how easy Subzero made the whole climb look - but, still, there's plenty of action, intrigue, and dizzying danger along the way, and the whole thing's capped by a pretty good ending.

The setup is a little bit of a stretch. Apparently, the UN secretly launched twelve satellites to guard against rogue missile attacks with EMP weapons. As you may already know (and certainly the Iranians know), an EMP pulse destroys everything electrical in a large vicinity; those who aren't killed by all the explosions and fires are basically thrown back in time a couple of hundred years in the long-term absence of any real technology. There's a trigger mechanism for these EMP satellites in the form of a cube, and for some reason the magic cube is housed in a minimal-security research station in Siberia (yeah, like the US is going to go along with that). Terrorists easily assault the place, steal the cube, and take off in a cargo plane - only to be shot down by a Russian missile. Miraculously, the cube survives intact - but, unfortunately, it comes to rest near the summit of K2.

3.0 out of 5 stars SUBPAR CLIFFHANGER NOT TOO BAD February 9, 2007
SUBZERO is a subpar version of Stallone's 90s CLIFFHANGER. While not nearly as well done as its predecessor, this movie is a decent enough thriller with some good mountain climbing sequences and a fair modicum of suspense.

After a device capable of instigating satellite attacks on major cities is lost in the mountains, a team of experts is assembled to find and deactivate the device.

Costas Mandylor leads the average cast with Linden Ashby as his old buddy. The special effects are pedestrian but the movie moves along well enough and is ultimately a satisfying adventure.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sub Zero was a complex & well thought out Script which combined imagination, climate, & possible world devastation by
a cube the size of a rubiks cube. Which was the targeting & triggering mechanism of a series of EMP sattellites put there
to supposedly protect the world from a nuclear hollocost.

1.0 out of 5 stars My mistake March 10, 2006
When I rented this DVD I mistakenly thought that Subzero was the title of the movie. I didn't realize that it was actually the rating of the movie. Sub Zero.

A lot of money must have been spent on helicopters but unfortunately they mustn't have had enough money to recruit good actors, storywriters, special affects people etc, etc. Actually one of the special affects where the building explodes on top of the mountain looks like it was made with the same move editing software that I use for my home movies. That software only cost me $50.
