An utter disaster that somehow found its way into British Netflix. A shameful attempt at continuing on where 'the day after tomorrow' left off.
The acting is beyond atrocious, you needn't look further than the 'chocolate bar' scene to see this. In the scene, a character (the names are impossible to recall through the sheer rage this film induces) states she'd like some chocolate bars. Our main character then asks her when she last checked her blood sugar which, given that it is a totally spontaneous comment, tells us there will be issues later in the films regarding her having diabetes and not being able to leave the building due to the weather. This, shockingly, is revealed a mere 20 minutes later. Oh, if you got that far, I'm impressed already. The acting when it comes to 'freezing' is so cliché that it's embarrassing. Must be seen to be believed.
The point that I turned the film off (after giving it multiple chances to redeem itself) comes after the emergency alert. All of Australia is being told that a deadly cold front that kills instantly is about to take the land into its icy tendrils... and nobody thinks to suspend aircraft from landing. As if that wasn't a poor enough blunder, when trying to tell a landing plane that they are experiencing 'dangerous weather' (which does it no justice at all), the pilot ignores the warning and lands anyway. Because pilots are well known for ignoring the instructions given by ground control right? Anyway, I turned this film off immediately following the shoddy explosion CGI. Not only is this a below freezing area which would presumably interact with flames in a very negative way, but the animating throughout is dated and poorly executed.
Kudos to anyone who managed the entire film. That's time you'll never get back, but your persistence is admirable. Among the worst films I'be ever seen (and while my views tend to be controversial sometimes, watch it and you'll see the ratings are being kind).
