No surprises here, with lots of violence, blood and gore. Throw in some suspense, mediocre acting and a marginal plot and I give it 2 out of 5 stars, which is as expected.

If you want a well made Post-Apocalyptic thriller this is your movie.
If you want Shakespear look somewhere else.
Doesn't pretend to be anything else.

It's interesting that there are so many post-apocalyptic frozen wastelands now that global warming is the latest probable cause. This is more believable than Snowpiercer but still only a mediocre film. The crazed marauders are so much like zombies that they might as well be and you'd probably enjoy I Am Legend or World War Z more.

Clearly these actors needed to pay some bills.

The plot is just a rehash of the old "Fort Apache" cliché--the good guys surrounded by hostiles intent on killing them. The Post-apocalypse genre, like that of Zombies and that of Vampires, has been overdone to the point of being tiresome. However, this won't stop Hollywood from turning out more of the same. At the end of this movie, you end up feeling like you've just seen the pilot of a rather dumb tv show.

For those of us concerned with Global Warming,.. here's a refreshing change of pace. Good puoduction values help keep this actioner interesting. And the storyline and acting are better than I expected !

Horrible. Really dumb plot.

I was expecting this movie to be direct-to-video grade terrible, and was actually pleasantly surprised with the production values and realism. Some plot-holes and underdeveloped secondary characters aside, I'd recommend this one for genre fans and those who are willing to give the occasional made-in-Canada production a chance.
