Time Out says

Despite a better cast than most Alistair MacLean adaptations and an interesting Arctic story about Cold War struggles to dominate the globe by weather control, this fast becomes a dodo with such elements as a former U-Boat base, most of the cast's suspiciously Nazi pasts, and an array of Teutonic accents clearly destined to play a large part in the story. Faced with such silliness, the writers panic and abandon exposition for slug-out set pieces, loud bangs and noisy chases. Left stranded, the cast must have drawn straws for lines like 'This is no place for scientists who can't control themselves'.
