Now here’s a treat for this Sunday, a great action/thriller flick starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Skeet Ulrich chill factorthat is so interesting and easygoing that you will be surprised when it ends. Two regular guys find themselves in a very tricky situation when they embark on a mission to deliver the new high-tech bomb to an army base. A simple delivery guy and a store clerk must fight terrorists and drive the bomb in an ice-cream truck to that location, so you got the Speed thing going on in the combination with humor and action.

I shall always remember the name of the truck, Old Pitt haha, outrageous. Cuba did several good movies in that period like the Instinct and Outbreak, and in recent years I have seen him in some action blunders that do not deserve actor that is so good. Chill Factor is a fun and entertaining movie with perfect pacing and very likable characters. The jokes are sprinkled throughout the movie and some of them are hilarious, while others fall flat on their face. Set up like this, with two Average Joe’s doing everything they can to deliver the bomb to the base despite the fact that the bad guys are after them, it’s meant to be a little dreamy. However, if you want, you can tear apart its story, jokes and almost everything else. The only thing that’s stopping you is Old Pitt. If you want to make Old Pitt cry, then that’s up to you…
