The Frozen Ground

Fragland

  • Excerpt: The Frozen Ground is gebaseerd op het waargebeurde verhaal van de jacht op seriemoordenaar Robert Hansen. Over de jaren heen zijn verscheidene vrouwen vermist geraakt maar niemand die eraan dacht dat de vermissingen met elkaar in verband zouden kunnen staan totdat er een half vergaan lijk ontdekt wordt van een van de vermiste vrouwen en Jack Halcombe (Nicholas Cage) op de zaak gezet wordt.

Frozen Ground, The

Rock! Shock! Pop!

  • Summary: Falling between the twin stools of grimy exploitation/visceral reality and Fincheresque ambition THE FROZEN GROUND is an intermittently interesting failure. What makes it watchable (if still a bit of an uneasy experience) is the solid acting and passably engaging true story. First time director and writer Walker might want to get a better handle on cohesive tone the next time out and lay off the ADD style camerawork.

The Frozen Ground

Slant Magazine
12 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The Frozen Ground isn't a moral disgrace, which is admittedly saying something for a contemporary serial-killer film. Writer-director Scott Walker doesn't invite the audience to celebrate Robert Hansen's (John Cusack) killing spree as an inevitable and vaguely justifiable reaction to a polite society's mounting toxicity.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: Watching Nic Cage give a nicely understated performance is one of the big selling points of 'The Frozen Ground'. While the movie is never quite fresh or original enough to make it stand out, the fact that it's based on a true story gives the proceedings some added weight, and the Alaskan setting provides for some nice visuals. Rent it.

The Frozen Ground (2013)

  • Conclusion: Walker is a self-confessed "newbie" to filmmaking, and perhaps a more seasoned hand could have better navigated the procedural and human interest sides of this story. As it stands, The Frozen Ground seems more than a bit exploitative. There are pieces here that work quite well, but things never gel into a satisfying whole.

  • Summary: John Cusack and Nicolas Cage star in this solid if unmemorable true-crime drama about an Alaskan serial killer.

The Digital Fix

  • Excerpt: That title, complete with a worded intro quoting The Bible, suggests something icier considering it�s all based on a true story. In the 1980s, Robert Hansen was arrested for murdering possibly over 20 women in Alaska. In film, the cold drama is a bland procedure with a needless side-story about the underworld.

Frozen Ground, The

Empire Online
19 October 2013
  • Conclusion: With Cage as a harried cop, Cusack as a serial killer and 50 Cent as a pimp, we're assuming the casting department kicked off early on this one. Still, there's plenty in this taut thriller for you to stick around for, not least the reuniting of the Con Air duo.
