The Ice Road [Movie Review]

The Ice Road [Movie Review] | As I was scrolling the Netflix, I realised there is a new Liam Neeson movie entitled as such. I immediately think about Cold Pursuit - will it be similar?

Whatever - I will just watch it.

When an explosion happens at a mine and entraps 26 miners, the executives call for help.

Mike, a trucker punches another trucker when that man calls his brother a 'retard' and they both were fired. When he hears about an opening for ice road truckers, Mike applied and got the job. He was to join a rescue mission to the mine, led by Jim (a trucker) along with Tantoo (also a trucker) and Varnay, the insurance guy sent to assess the situation. The group was given $200,000 to be split between the four truckers and later be distributed among the mine survivors.

Along the way, Jim's truck engine seizes. While attempting repair, the ice beneath the truck gives way and brings Jim along into the icy tomb. As the icy roads start to crack, the other two trucks attempt to flee the pressure wave and both trucks end up skid on the icy road.

Mike and Varnay accuse Tantoo of sabotaging Jim's truck but later Tantoo reveals that her brother is among the trap miners and she wants to save him. While trying to right the truck, Varnay locks Mike and Gurty inside their trailer and leaves with Tantoo, after he knocks her unconscious and admits that he sabotaged Jim's truck. He also rigs Mike's truck with dynamites, in hopes that the duo will be killed in the explosion.

Being a war veteran, Mike manages to escape from the trailer and throw the dynamite away before it explodes.

Who is Varnay and why is he trying to kill the group of truckers?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.0/ 5.0 The plot was given away very early in the movie. But the action keeps me glued to the movie - also because I like Liam Neeson, so that's that. Haha.

Cast: 4.3/ 5.0 I would say not the best of Liam's movie but watchable. The others are equally convincing in delivering their parts.

Will I watch it again: Not in the very near future, unless I feel like watching everything Liam hehe.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.

  1. Reviews 4.0 masih tahap baik lagi bro, Sekarang filem Holloywood sudah tak berapa best berbanding area seperti Korea Selatan. Maybe penerbit barat sudah kekeringan idea hehee
