Film Review: Iceman

FilmJournal
18 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Clarence Fok’s goofy but charming 1989 The Iceman Cometh gets a modern retread in a film that’s been making headlines since the project was announced a few years back. Plagued by all manner of production snafus and a ballooning budget, the problems show in the final product. Iceman is a fractured...

Michael Shannon shines in the otherwise dull 'The Iceman'

Las Vegas Weekly
22 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Michael Shannon’s typically intense performance as a cold-blooded contract killer (based on real-life hitman Richard Kuklinski, who allegedly killed between 100 and 250 people) elevates The Iceman , which otherwise has little reason to exist apart from a viewer’s morbid curiosity.

Not Coming

  • Excerpt: A couple of decades ago, many directors might have put Christopher Walken at the top of their lists when scouting potential actors to play the part of a coldblooded hitman leading a double life as a seemingly ordinary husband and father.

  • Conclusion: Filmen: Den makabra historien om Richard Kuklinski, också känd som "The Iceman", har berättats tidigare både i HBO-producerade dokumentärer och böcker. Här gestaltas den känslokalle yrkesmördaren av en fullkomligt strålande Michael Shannon i vad som kunde ha blivit en riktigt spännande film, men som...

  • Excerpt: Även om jag inte levde på 70-talet så vill jag ändå att skildringar av det ska kännas rätt. Att gå från att se fantastiska Cemetery Junction till att recensera The Iceman , där 70-talet bara blir mellanskillnaden av ett oambitiöst 60-tal och ett intetsägande 80-tal, är svårt.
