Interesting story with lots of action. Not sure I would have chosen this as my first career to drive a truck on a road made of ice. But I guess the story has its merits, especially when it showed brotherly love, not by one, but by two of the actors. Suspense was there and those who enjoy action movies will not be disappointed, although I thought the the main actors took too much of a beating, but that’s just me. In the end, this would be a movie I would watch again.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Is Neeson the new Seagal?.. can’t think of any other men less suited to their profession.
Liam Cage vs Nick Neeson.
Not sure who is my favorite from the 2. But both seem to love the 1-man-show kind of films which have absurd and nonsensical stories.
The Ice Road is…just another Liam Neeson movie. Obviously Nick Cage would have liked to be in this one, but Liam got there first.
Realism went for vacation here. Trucks and truckers after having seen this film are probably furious with these completely wrong and unbelievable scenes.
But, that’s the Hollywood magic.
So folks this ain’t a documentary but an action film set in cold Canada involving trucks, mines, bad people and ice roads.
In fact, it’s an enjoyable action flick.
It needs to be seen with the right amount of patience, to go through all the silly dialogue moments and the unreal truck scenes.
Maybe the cinema experience helps too.
So, switch off and you might actually enjoy it.
American trucker Mike McCann (Liam Neeson) is struggling to care for his mechanic brother Gurty (Marcus Thomas), a former soldier with brain issues. He gets a needed job opportunity from Jim Goldenrod (Laurence Fishburne). A diamond mine in northern Manitoba has a cave-in. Needed drilling equipment is getting trucked in over the ice road despite being weeks after the driving season. The ice is thinning and the operation is full of dangers. Tantoo (Amber Midthunder) is the third driver and Tom Varnay (Benjamin Walker) is the company man joining the trip.
I don’t see the premise making sense. There has to be an easier way to create a villain. As a cover-up, this is way too complicated and way too murdering. I do like the trucking action but the weird evil corporation makes no sense. The story could still work but it would work better with fewer bad guys. It’s always weird when a random corporation has a professional hit team willing to kill on demand. It’s also unnecessary to have the awkward underground drama. Keep it on the ice road. As for our main characters, there are a couple of uncomfortable scenes of Mike dealing with Gurty. Liam Neeson has an intensity which can translate into anger during times of frustration. That’s a pitfall for him. All in all, the trucking action is better than I expected even with some pedestrian CGI but the story is much more problematic.
