ICE GIRLS REVIEWED
“Ice Girls” is a film about a teenage girl’s desire to compete in ice skating. How is this different than what Dorothy Hamill or Minka Kelly accomplished ages ago? I don’t know. For 91 minutes, I watched as a gaggle of young ladies talked with professional ice skaters and Natasha Henstridge. They could’ve been revealing the secrets of immortality and I’d be drawing a blank. Sometimes, that’s what happens.
This movie is not different from the many runaway productions like it. However, it made me Wiki to find out what is an Elvis Stojko. I’m not impressed. While the movie is well made and seems to hold youthful attention, I’m just not a fan. It’s not any singular element of the film, it’s just the sum of the parts. Nothing connects for me, there’s no interesting character dynamics and the film feels like an overwrought TV movie. If that floats your boat, give it a shot.
