    "Most likely to succeed." They`re the least likely words you`ll find below old yearbook photos of ice cream deliveryman Arlo (Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding, Jr.) and convenience-store clerk Tim (Skeet Ulrich). But now this loose-fitting duo must succeed at any cost. A dying scientist (David Paymer) has plopped into their hand a bioweapon canister code-named Elvis and told them to speed it to a military base. Buckle up, fellas. The same assassins who dealt the scientist his deathblow will do anything to claim Elvis. And if the canister heats up to its 50-degree activation point, Elvis will claim everyone within hundreds of miles.

    Action. Suspense. Laughs. Ice cream trucks. Runaway skiffs. All are comin` at ya in this exciting and suspenseful buddy thriller fueled by one breakneck principle: chill... or be chilled.

    7 / 10
    A cute little semi-comic thriller. The theme is not new - a couple of bad guys, who want to get their hands on a lethal weapon chase the good guys (who are occasionally quite funny). As for the ending - well, you`re guess is as good as mine.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs at all and the picture is very sharp. The special effects look really great throughout the movie.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are nicely used, especially during the chase scenes.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include a short explanation about the special effects.
    Bottom line - a good thriller with some great looking special effects. Enjoy!
