“The action scenes are intense and thrilling, and even the CGI effects for the disaster scenes are pretty good […] Nothing here will change anyone’s minds if you’re someone who doesn’t like Asylum’s products, but for those like that that always look forward to each of their releases this one was a fun ride and a few steps above their usual natural disaster fare.” Jeffrey Long

“A meteorologically and geographically factually accurate ice disaster film from The Asylum and starring a very sad and drunk Tom Sizemore. This was exceptionally cheap and bad, even by Asylum standards.” Ryan Kinder
