Storyline

On a flight through the arctic the crew of a RAF airplane realizes a crashed soviet plane on the ice. There seems to be one survivor, but landing is not possible at the moment. Finally someone decides to volunteer and gets out the airplane to stay with the Russian survivor until help comes. Both men wait for days, but no help is in sight. They are on their own. Two different worlds, two different cultures and two different men dash against each other and around them is only the cold. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

A good movie?
23 December 2002 | by julilks26See all my reviews

I saw this several years back and it has scarred me for life. This is possibly the worst movie I've ever seen in my life, except Bring it On. "Royce! Put down the ax, Royce!" First off, the movie would never end. It was so unbearable I was forced to fastforward only to find nothing but the same hours into the movie. It has become a family joke at my house and seeing how all other reviewers loved it, I thought I'd give my warning to all those who don't share in their taste. My advice? I'd rather have a root canal done than see this again.
