Critic Reviews for Ice Station Zebra
A fairly tight, exciting, Saturday night adventure story that suddenly goes all muddy in its crises, so that at two crucial points, it is very difficult to know what is going on, or who knows what about it. It doesn't make much difference, though.
If this had been a routine Saturday-afternoon thriller, it might have been fun. But it's been stretched out to roadshow length and loaded down with lots of gimmicks to conceal the thinness of the story.
An uncharacteristically weak thriller-actioner from the talented director John Sturges.
A conventional Cold War thriller whose flatness keeps it from being as suspenseful as it should be.
Audience Reviews for Ice Station Zebra
Classic adventure based on a novel by Alistair Maclean. A stellar cast, non-stop action and intrigue and marvelous visuals and sets - the star of which is the tilting submarine inards. One bit always annoys me - the stock footage of Phantom jets pretending to be Migs but its a petty gripe about what is one of my favourite films.
I don't usually like military submarine type movies, but I actually enjoyed this one. The special effects are cool, the story is good and understandable, and I loved McGoohan in this movie, he was awesome. I really liked this movie.
A stellar cast, yet the story is oddly spiltted in two episodes who feel a bit disconnected. A shame though because both had potential on their own. Anyway, a good and surprisingly realistic movie. If you are into classic movies, submarines and cold war this one is for you.
