Movie Info

A decade after chemical weapon "Elvis" kills 18 soldiers during a test, military scapegoat Andrew (Peter Firth) gets out of jail and tracks down scientist Richard (David Paymer) in Montana -- who shoots him. Andrew manages to tell his friend Tim (Skeet Ulrich) to get Elvis to safety at a fort 90 miles away. However, if exposed to a temperature higher than 50 degrees, the weapon will go off, so Andrew forces ice-cream-truck driver Arlo (Cuba Gooding Jr.) to help him transport the device.

    Another dud starring Cuba Gooding Jr.

    Let me start off by saying that "Speed" is one of my all-time favorite movies, and that "Chill Factor's" plot centers a lot around "Speed's" main idea. Luckily for me, a movie taking the formula of a much more successful and original movie hasn't ever bothered me as much as it does most of the movie critics, just as long as it's also a good movie, which "Chill Factor" is. Tim Mason (Skeet Ulrich) and the driver of a stolen ice cream truck, Arlo (Cuba Gooding Jr.), get tangled up in a plot in which they must keep a chemical weapon from blowing up and killing millions of people. If this chemical weapon that's called 'Elvis' gets up to 50º, it will literally explode instantly. But that's not all, they have a group of madmen that are tracking them down because they want to get a hold of Elvis. The chemical weapon Elvis, not the singer who a lot of people think is still alive and kicking. Even though "Chill Factor" is a ripoff of one of my favorite movies of all time, I have to admit that it is a very entertaining film. The script, plot, acting, and everything else about this movie is just average, but Cuba Gooding Jr. keeps it from being a dud. Throughout "Chill Factor," he is hilarious and like always, does a great job of acting. The other things that keep "Chill Factor" from being a not so good movie is that it's interesting and somewhat suspenseful at times. If you liked "Speed," or even if you don't, I recommend at least seeing "Chill Factor." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001. Not bad for a "Speed" ripoff.

    Fine action with Skeet Ulrich and Cuba Gooding Jr. go on the lam with a deadly biological weapon to keep it out of the hands of a demented arms dealer. Stitched together from pieces of better movies including <i>Speed</i> and <i>Raiders of the Lost Ark</i> and hammered across with clumsy enthusiasm, the film quickly becomes noisy and overbearing.

    Ridiculous buddy thriller in which Cuba Gooding's ice cream delivery man gets roped into hauling unstable chemical weapons around in his truck, pursued by moustache twirling villain Peter Firth. It's obviously trash, but Gooding and Ulrich's good-natured banter keeps it watchable in a reasonably entertaining comic action no-brainer.
