Buy it... only if you are a truly devoted Hans Zimmer collector and want about five minutes of decent material from this stock, unoriginal score.

Avoid it... if you have no need for an uninspiring sampling of Media Ventures cues of bland and predictable derivation.

Chill Factor: (Hans Zimmer/John Powell/Jeff Rona) Did film studios really take audiences for such fools that those viewers wouldn't be able to figure out that Chill Factor is a badly twisted and poorly conceived remake of the popular 1994 film Speed? This time, instead of a bus rigged to explode if it slows below 50 miles per hour, you have a nasty biological weapon that will explode and defoliate plants, melt human flesh, etc, if it is warmed above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Worse yet, the bomb's name is Elvis and the vehicle this time is an ice cream truck. The plot is one of those buddy/adversity varieties, putting Cuba Gooding Jr. and Skeet Ulrich in the position of being forced to carry the bomb to a target chosen for reasons of revenge by a government-brainwashed villain who has gotten free from the clutches of the law. One of the famously dumb quotes from the film was "I'd like to kick your ass like last year's underwear." Sound stupid? Indeed it is, and the film plummeted to the depths of obscurity within a week or two after its theatrical release, destined to eventually be one of those after-midnight flicks you see on cable channels, broken into segments between advertisements for sultry 900-number phone sex and Caribbean psychics who would eventually be indicted for fraud. Another problem existed with the mix of the film's sound effects and music; while they were balanced in a decent, stereophonic fashion in the film, the bass of the sound effects booms in sub-25Hz ranges, often bordering on the ability to blow out speakers if you attempt to raise the volume to enjoy the music. As an assignment, Chill Factor was just as curious for composer Hans Zimmer as it had been for Cuba Gooding Jr., who had just come off of an Academy Award win. Zimmer had been nominated for three Academy Awards in the 18 months prior to Chill Factor, gaining mainstream attention for The Thin Red Line, The Prince of Egypt, and As Good As It Gets. Add to that period a strong action score for The Peacemaker and Zimmer was on a roll.
