Token Travesty
by Richard Jack Smith

For Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, we find all the usual suspects: annoying characters, bad cinematography and editing which snips the life-force out of every player. In short, a token travesty. The whole sorry mess should be wrapped in a bag, decimated by C4 and the remains promptly discarded in the deepest, darkest dungeon on earth.

No need for a plot synopsis. The land worms, also known as Graboids, have risen from the depths in the Canadian Arctic. Near the start, a distracting blue filter tries to convince us that sand can be ice. Nice try Leibovitz.

As of this writing, Michael Gross has worn his way through many an improvisation and screenwriter’s catchy phrase. In fact, he stopped being funny during his last episode from the long cancelled TV series. Simply shouting his lines in close-up as barely rehearsed co-stars react in amateurish glee makes him appear weak.

Can it get any worse?

(Capsule review. Released by Universal Pictures and rated "PG-13" for creature violence, gore, crude humor and language.)
