In the future, the world is frozen over. The remaining humans have all gone underground in order to survive. There are a number of colonies in underground fortresses with severe rules. A message sent from a neighboring colony indicates that the figured a way to clear the weather and have a small patch of sunlight and Briggs (Laurence Fishburne), the leader, determines to put together a party to travel to the location of the broadcast to investigate, but instead they may bring a plague to the fortress that could wipe out everyone.

This a really good science fiction suspense film that is really well done. I was not aware of this film, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. There is a lot of different things going on. While Briggs it out, Bill Paxton’s character takes over and changes all the rules. He plays a really good heavy here who has very little understanding or compassion, but has a strong drive to take over. The story is well written, very suspenseful, and loads of fun to watch. There is a lot of scary moments, plenty of different levels working, and the locations are stunning. One of the interesting facts about this film is that a lot of it was filmed in the closed underground NORAD facility in Canada which was a key facility during the cold war. Fishburne and Paxton are really good in this film, and the story is superior. I was blown away by the suspense and thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I highly recommend it if you enjoy apocalyptic science fiction films. It’s a good one.
