We gave it a D

Screwing up his face into a pantomime of fury, Cuba Gooding Jr. looks at his partner, Skeet Ulrich, and screams out lines like ”I’m about to get in yo’ ass like last year’s underwear!” and damned if he doesn’t sound like an extremely short-tempered kindergarten teacher. The two have to transport a canister of chemical weapons through the mountain highways of Montana. The people who made Chill Factor probably think it’s Speed meets The Wages of Fear, but to describe it that way is to acknowledge that it’s less a movie than a pitch meeting on celluloid. D
