Even The Ice Road’s dumbest turns are stabilised by the presence of Neeson, a real Kenworth of a man if there ever was one.

A muddle of cliches and unremarkable action sequences...

Despite its many perils, both natural and human, The Ice Road is surprisingly dull.

Further cements Liam Neeson's reputation as the only action star in the 60-70 age bracket worth his salt.

Gird your expectations accordingly - as you would for any Neeson action film of the past decade - and you'll enjoy The Ice Road.

As The Ice Road goes on, (its) matter-of-fact approach increasingly feels at odds with what's happening onscreen. Such a smart movie probably shouldn't have been so stupid.

(Neeson's) action hero schtick... has become so repetitive that one imagines him just shuffling from one set to the other dragging his rifle...

(The Ice Road) has its blunt charms, and offers more than one instance of Neeson punching a guy in the face. And admit it: that’s part of what you came here for, isn’t it?

The Ice Road doesn't share a trucker's discipline, and it speeds up and up and up until it bleeds into a different, more conventional action sub-genre altogether.

Suffice it to say that Neeson’s agent clearly still flips through screenplays looking for the word “revenge.”

Any bit of visual wit that manages to slip through feels accidental.

We've seen these tropes a thousand times... if you can plug into that part of your brain, then a fun time is on the cards.
