The straight-to-DVD thriller "Ice Soldiers" might be your next guilty pleasure, mainly because of the appearance of Michael Ironside in a parka, and a crazy-ass plot concerning three Nazi supersoldiers who wreck havoc after emerging from their Arctic slumber. No, seriously, that's the plot!
Prison Break's Dominic Purcell stars as a scientist who believes that a secret Nazi program had produced three genetically-modified soldiers and is convinced that they are somehow buried deep inside the Antarctic tundra. Of course, he gets more than he bargained for when his research team goes searching for evidence of their existence and discovers the myths are very real -- and very dangerous -- and very blonde!
Directed by Icelandic-born filmmaker Sturla Gunnarsson (2005's Beowulf & Grendel), the Canadian-produced feature also stars Adam Beach (Cowboys & Aliens) and Camille Sullivan (TV's Rookie Blue). The above trailer says it's now available on Blu-Ray and DVD, but we're not sure if that's exactly true -- then again, we didn't believe, until today, there was a movie about Nazi supersoldiers stuck in ice. Go figure!
Deep in the arctic, a military expedition unearths the remnants of a super soldier program from the past that threatens to spill into present. All that stands between these frozen soldiers and society are TC Cardinal (Adam Beach), a Canadian Native living above the treeline, and Malraux (Dominic Purcell), a scientist with a past connected to the Ice Soldiers.
