Age of Ice (2014)

Age of Nothing

Things are going to get seriously frosty in the Middle East when the Arabian tectonic plates running down the middle of the Red Sea shift causing massive tremors and Earthquakes. But this sudden shift is also causing an immediate shift in temperature which means not only do those in the area have to worry about lava but dropping terrible which will be unsurvivable by night. In the midst of this is the Jones family who must make their way to safety.

For the briefest of moments I thought that "Age of Ice" might be passable with an opening scene of fighter planes flying low over water and running in to difficulties when the air over a cold patch causes them to crash into a Navy vessel. It wasn't the most believable of scenes but I had watched worst when it comes to these disaster movies distributed by The Asylum.

But then the focus shifted from the sea to the Middle East and the ridiculously dumb Jones family as they are looking around a pyramid when the tremors strike. What follows is utterly pointless as we watch them try and make it to safety with the aid of a mysterious local man with major connections. In truth by this point which was about 30 minutes in to the movie I had given up on caring because everything about "Age of Ice" sucked and was totally uninteresting with the routine poor special effects from cars driving in the rain except no one had wipers goings unconvincing ice clouds.

What this all boils down to is "Age of Ice" is officially one of the worst movies I have ever endured and other than the briefly promising opening there is nothing else worthy of any praise. Even for those who enjoy bad movies will find this coming up well short of the mark.
