Movie Info

Life at the Killington ski resort couldn't be better, at least until a group of sinister terrorists led by the morally-questionable Greig (Bruce Campbell) take its residents hostage with the threat of a stolen nuclear weapon. With disaster breathing down everyone's necks like a bad date, it's up to Ski Patrol expert Matt Foster (Sean Astin) to save the day -- not to mention the girl. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Icebreaker

Dumb low budget spy/action movie, but done in a way that's fun and amusing. Bruce Campbell is obviously the major appeal here, but the other characters can be fun at times. But it is stupid here and there, no matter which way you put it.

There's a reason this is as made fun of as it is. Campbell is completely two dimensional, but not for lack of trying; his backstory is actually used to kill a comrade-in-arms. Sadly, genuinely clever bits like that are in rare excess, because the script is full of lines and moments that were probably thought to be really good... and just aren't. The editing and directing are horrid and show how a movie with three strong talents and plethora of resources can go so very wrong.

Only saved by the wacky performance of Bruce Campbell as a terrorist mastermind who takes over a ski resort for some reason. Astin really fails as a hero type and can't carry the action scenes with any degree of realism. The plot and dialogue is silly and the action TV grade so I wouldn't go in expecting much and you might have some fun.
