An unforgettable and Inspirational Movie!
Verified purchase
I absolutely loved “Ice The Movie”, and enjoyed it just as much on my second viewing. It’s an invigorating, inspirational story about dreams, the tremendous self-sacrifice of fulfilling them and the importance of friendship, trust and how to overcome adversity. It conveys the struggles and triumphs of having a life-long dream, at such a young age, and the self-sacrifice, drive, passion, focus and unwavering commitment to achieve it.
I loved the use of the alarm clock each morning, to convey the passion, discipline and commitment that Bailey and Peyton have for skating, despite their young age. I also loved how the movie shows the darker side of competition, the pressure and adverse effects of parents who want their daughter to succeed at all cost, to serve their own interest. I loved the contrast between Nick, Bailey’s caring dad, who initially has trouble letting go and Peyton’s dad, who pressures Peyton to win at all cost, causing her to develop performance anxiety.
The performances of Bailey, Peyton, Nick and the entire cast are superb and a real tour of force. Bailey and Peyton are especially believable and inspirational as skating prodigies, rivals, best friends and fierce competitors in the pressure packed, high stakes world of elite figure skating.
Excellent writing as well as fantastic pacing, suspense, conflict, believable dialogue and humor. I loved the skating montages and the music! It moves the story forward and elevates the emotional experience to where I had a lump in my throat at the end. Bailey and Peyton’s skating is truly amazing and really elevates the authenticity so that the audience can have a truly memorable experience.
I love how Bailey perseveres through incredibly daunting odds, which are both realistic and inspiring. Ultimately I loved the character dynamics between Bailey and Peyton and really appreciated the tremendous growth in both of them. Ice The Movie brilliantly and deeply explores the emotions of fear, confidence, playfulness, introversion and extroversion, which makes us want to route for both Bailey and Peyton, even though only one can win the gold.

Fun, family friendly movie that shows us what the life of an elite competitive figure skater is like
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this movie. I originally purchased it because our figure skating club was looking for recent figure skating movies to show to our club members at a Movie Day event. I've watched it several times since because it was a fun movie that I could watch with my daughters that shows how hard figure skaters train and also how life can just be unfair sometimes. I loved the interaction between the characters and the awesome skating! Maddison Bullock, the star of the movies as well as it's writer and producer, is an amazing young woman. She is a former competitive figure skater and still remains active in the skating world. She wrote a movie about a world she knows well and gave us a glimpse at many aspects of it that we don't normally see. I definitely recommend this movie.

Heartfelt story, thrilling action & deep insight into the figure skating world!
Verified purchase
What a fun flick! Ice is an enthralling and touching story of friendship, passion, romance, and what it takes to be an elite athlete. The production is shear ambition, pulling off some incredible skate scenes, spanning so much gorgeous scenery and landing some epic competition moments - plus all its little indie filmmaking quirks are endearing. The characters are endearing, too, the skating is phenomenal, and the music is handled masterfully. Above all, you can tell the woman who wrote/produced/starred in it, Maddison Bullock, knows the figure skating world well, and knows how to tell a universal story from her own perspective, full of fiery determination with a dash of humor and a whole lot of heart. Ice is a great winter watch for the entire family, highly recommend!

Movie stops short from being really good
Verified purchase
Movies like this take you through the characters journey. The ups and downs and how each girl learns to overcome and to be stronger for it. Typically i wouldn't include a spoiler but I feel you will waste your money renting a movie that doesn't even let you see the girls win what they worked so hard for. I give this two stars because the story and the acting was good until you realize you never see them skate in the Olympics. Its a shame this movie could have been so much better with just one more scene.

Heartfelt and sweet love letter to ice skating
Verified purchase
A sweet look inside the world of competitive ice skating. Maddison Bullock is fantastic as Bailey in a script she wrote herself. There’s no doubt Bullock has a deep love - and an incredible talent! - of skating. This is a heartfelt love letter to the sport and she shines in this film.

Boring, mushy, fake and weak story line.
Verified purchase
This movie was poorly written, terrible story line, 3 skaters with over 60 years of skating between them watched... Nothing like skating really is. Not realistic. The skating was awful.

Feel good movie with a great message
Verified purchase
If you are looking for an academy award winning drama, this might not live up to your expectations. If you want a sweet, kindhearted, buddy, sisterhood, never give up, never surrender movie, this is the ONE! Maddison and Lisa as the "Veerak Sisters" show a very believable dynamic that two elite athletes pushed together by a set of driving parents creating a very sisterly bond between the girls, with all the sacrifices and roller coaster emotions any sisters will relate to.
Just good fun, with a message we all need right now!
Two thumbs way up!
