Plot Summary

A decade after chemical weapon "Elvis" kills 18 soldiers during a test, military scapegoat Andrew (Peter Firth) gets out of jail and tracks down scientist Richard (David Paymer) in Montana -- who shoots him. Andrew manages to tell his friend Tim (Skeet Ulrich) to get Elvis to safety at a fort 90 miles away. However, if exposed to a temperature higher than 50 degrees, the weapon will go off, so Andrew forces ice-cream-truck driver Arlo (Cuba Gooding Jr.) to help him transport the device.

    It's the performances of Ulrich and Gooding, in particular, that lift Chill Factor out of the derivative. Gooding possesses so much boundless energy that he practically dares you not to care, not to get involved, not to root for his success.

    Skeet Ulrich continues to disappoint in one high-profile project after another.

    It's one of those movies that are unfortunately so technically well done, it's hard to tune out on the senseless story.
