The Ice Road (Netflix streamingj

From IMDB

“ After a remote diamond mine collapses in the far northern regions of Canada, an ice driver leads an impossible rescue mission over a frozen ocean to save the lives of trapped miners despite thawing waters and a threat they never see coming.”

I really liked this movie. Liam Neeson stars. Interesting story with good action that held my interest.

Just watched this. Just about anything and everything one knows about trucking (in actual practice) can be thrown out the window. :lol: I was fully entertained, don’t get me wrong, but man, even as a Liam fanboy, this was over the top. I almost want to re-watch it, just to count how many times the trucks would actually not get past each jackknife that happens, not to mention the aforementioned posts about driving on ice roads.

Additionally, can we stop with the villain that never seems to die? Please?

I will say, the chemistry between the cast really works, that part felt very natural. The miners, the truckers, you felt they really had that bond in their respective careers. The stuff that outsiders might not truly understand.

Grab the big tub of popcorn, and give it a whirl.
