My Review
Well I was not really disappointed by this film. I had basically written it off as cheesy natural disaster film.

I can’t really say there was any superb acting and of course this film seems to pull a lot from past movies involving natural disasters. Quick developing massive storm, defiant government, righteous scientist, family trapped in the worst part of the storm, father/son relationship issues, shall I continue?

You would think that by my remarks above I didn’t like it, but it was entertaining enough. A little long, but it’s got to be hard to put the earth into an ice age and tell a story in 123 minutes. Even with that the storm and everything happened so fast that it was like they sped up nature to accommodate for the running time.

Another irritating thing, the “fake” Wolves. I mean you could have at least used real wolves or hybrids in the non attacking scenes.

Ok, I think I am about done with this review, the more I write and think about it, the more pissed off I get at the movie.
