      michelle w It's got 2 great actors that I love very much however neither of them could see how incredibly dumb the plot was? I guess everyone needs work to pay their bills. They could have been given much much better projects to invest their time. Sub par action scenes, below par acting and all the B rated actors and actesses didn't help even with 2 leading men on board. Best part was when Cuba slid into that motorcycle and knocked the guy for a complete LOOP!! Lol Thumbs down for me overall. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/18/22 Full Review Audience Member Keep your brain home, it's silly funny but pretty enjoyable, hot coffee-boy & ice-cream chill man on-hold of mass destruction toy & the world in their hands playing cat & mouse. Why don't take a break & have a treat since carrying a whole truck haha? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review h a One of my favorite movies of all time. But you morons here on rotten tomatoes have proven once again that you couldn't find a good movie if it were sitting right under your nose. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member On the surface it is a silly film, but has a great cast and the dynamic between skeet Ulrich and Cuba gooding jr. is fun. Try it out for a fun saving the world film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/24/18 Full Review Audience Member Panned by the critics and thin on the plot, but fans of Cuba Gooding will like his funny character Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Frances H Not too bad to watch while you do something else.

      Ron Givens New York Daily News This is a cookie-cutter buddy movie, as predictable as they come. Jun 11, 2013 Full Review Nathan Rabin AV Club As an unintentional send-up of the predictability and wretchedness of modern action-comedies, Chill Factor is hilarious. Sadly, however, no one involved seems to realize the silliness and transgressive stupidity of its sub-direct-to-video-thriller script. Jun 11, 2013 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Nobody questions this logic, but then there are a lot of logical gaps in this movie. Rated: 2/4 Jun 11, 2013 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …as an accidental comedy, Chill Factor has plenty to offer slumming cineastes, with weak, colourless leads, a slavering, snarling villain, and some ludicrous but entertaining action scenes… Rated: 3/5 Sep 3, 2023 Full Review Enrique Fernandez South Florida Sun-Sentinel It doesn't bother me too much that this is silly; like everyone else in the theater, I'm here for the thrills. But Chill Factor doesn't let me have any with my brain. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 18, 2021 Full Review Chris Ward Flickering Myth This dull and uninspiring mess has very little to offer other than an unoriginal idea in an under-utilised setting.
