Iceman

Rock! Shock! Pop!
22 November 2014
  • Summary: Iceman is hard to love as it leaves a whole lot left to be resolved in the sequel that, at the time of this writing, is already in production. As it stands, the movie is a bit slow and spends a lot of time setting up things that haven’t happened yet.

Iceman (Blu-ray Review)

18 November 2014
  • Conclusion: Another misfire on the ‘ol Donnie Yen resume I’m afraid – I knew what to expect from the trailers but it’s just a very incongruent film and the superman-like wire work and questionable CGI just drop this thing like a brick.

Iceman (2014)

14 November 2014
  • Conclusion: Even Donnie Yen's ardent fan base may be largely bored by the frenetic but rarely involving Iceman . While having absolutely no connection whatsoever to Eugene O'Neill's play, Iceman is actually a remake of a much more exciting film called The Iceman Cometh .

Iceman

DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: To be clear upfront: there's no question that Iceman , a Hong Kong action-comedy released in its home country in 3D, is a patently silly movie. The story follows He Ying, a Ming Dynasty royal guard, who, after being wrongfully accused of treason and sentenced to death, ends up caught in a blizzard...

  • Excerpt: The Iceman tells the true story of Richard “Ritchie” Kuklinski who, as a maffia assassin, has at least 100 lives on his conscience. Although, conscience… the man isn’t called “The Iceman” for nothing.

  • Excerpt: The Iceman tells the true story of Richie Kuklinski (Michael Shannon), a hired killer for the mob estimated to have offed at least 100 people and whose nickname, which gives the film its title, originated from his calculated manner of disposing bodies: freezing them so that the time of death...

The Iceman (2012)

13 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Ariel Vromen's The Iceman delivers a tight, dark, and disturbingly fascinating tale of a man living two lives and the inward and outward process of keeping them separate, which seems a more insurmountable objective than becoming one of the most notorious killers-for-hire in modern history.

  • Conclusion: The Iceman offers a fascinating portrait of a deadly criminal with two contradictory lives. Ariel Vromen's film impresses with visual flair, meticulous period production design, and strong performances from the well-assembled cast led by a frighteningly (yet expectedly) effective Michael Shannon.

Rock! Shock! Pop!
26 August 2013
  • Summary: Recommended for Michael Shannon's performance THE ICEMAN is a solid crime picture. A bit scattershot and rushed at times compared to it's voluminous source material, it is nevertheless worthwhile viewing.
