The Ice Road (2021)

It's not so much that the movie is bad as it's wondering how on Earth they managed to get Liam Neeson and Laurence Fishburne to feature in it.

Sometimes we all just need a "turn off the brain" fun kind of movie. And it's not like those movies have to be based fully in reality, but they at least make sense. This movie just doesn't make any sense at all.

I don't want to give an spoilers, but suffice to say that the "conflict" part of the narrative is just such nonsense at to make it hard to even care about the plot. What's more is that the writing and the acting are really subpar.

The main problem is that the movie tries to sell itself as one where the characters actually have some emotions for the situation that's going on. But then a character dies and it seems like more of a "welp, that's a shame".

It's just a bad movie. There are MUCH better random action movies to tap into if that's what you're looking for.
