Ice Soldiers is a 2013 Canadian action-science fiction film directed by Sturla Gunnarsson and starring Dominic Purcell, Adam Beach and Michael Ironside.


In 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis a team of Canadian troops in the arctic manage to capture three Soviet soldiers with super human abilities. They are examined but later break free and kill much of the troops stationed in the north. 50 years later, a team of Canadian scientists discover them buried beneath the Arctic ice. They begin to debate on what to do with them but can never reach an agreement. When the soldiers are revived, they again go on killing spree and kill much of the military and scientist personnel. Malraux walks through the wilderness after them when he stumbles across an Inuit who agrees to team up and fight these intruders to stop them from reaching south. They succeed in catching up to them and kill them after surviving many atrocities.



Ice Soldiers was filmed in the Sudbury, Ontario area in 2013.[1]


Norman Wilner of Now wrote, "It's all pretty generic, and very stupid".[2] David Johnson of DVD Verdict called it "pretty much standard-issue stalking and stabbing."[3] Jay Stone of rated it 2/5 stars and called it "a gleefully preposterous slice of B movie cheese".[4]
