  • Summary: "Iceman" has a fun, and yet intense story that begs for cool fight sequences choreographed flawlessly. I didn't totally get the grandeur that surrounds these figures-who obviously have mastered the teachings so well they have transcended into "godhood".

A One Lone Show

  • Summary: This is what I love about Movies back in the 80's and 90's, and really just older movies in general, you can see the difference. The difference is they didn't have the technology to make what they do today, which in actuality is usually too much!

  • Summary: A prehistoric man from 20 to 40 thousand years ago is found frozen in a block of arctic ice. A research team find him, manage to bring him back to life, and try to figure out how to interact with him. The performances feel genuine.

One of the great "science fiction" movies of the 1980s.

  • Summary: It's sad to read some of the "summaries" and comments here about "Iceman." Some people dismiss 1980s movies outright, and think the usually overblown, CGI dominated "science fiction" movies of the 21st century are better!?! That makes me laugh.

All but a case of massive generation gap

  • Summary: Man has always been curious about his origins and since the days of Darwin much effort have been done in tracing back the evolution of mankind to the final link where we as animals became self conscious and began advancing rapidly in terms of how much we have modified our macro biosphere in such...

a drastically underrated movie

Mutakk, IMDb

  • Summary: People think Timothy Hutton didn't do any good movies after winning the Oscar for Ordinary People, but that's not true. Among other really good movies he's done are Q&A, Taps, Falcon & The Snowman, French Kiss, and Iceman, which is way better than you'd think it would be, considering the plot is so...

"I who have died shall live..."

  • Summary: What you think of "Iceman" depends on your general nature. If you are sentimental and deeply moved by stories of great emotion, you'll love it. If you are hard-edged, cynical and opposed to the least bit of softening in life, you'll think it crass. I know what side of the fence I'm on.

Warming sci-fi

paul2001sw-1 (paul2001sw@yahoo.co.uk), IMDb
11 May 2003
  • Summary: Unusually intelligent sci-fi, about a group of polar researchers who discover a hibernating (and slightly too human-looking) Neanderthal. The scientists (predictably) just want to cut him up, but Tim Hutton plays the lone anthropologist who befriends him and teaches him how to sing along to Neil...

An unforgettable journey of humanity

Dana Wang, IMDb
4 November 1999
  • Summary: While a group of scientists were working in the Arctic they found a man frozen in the ice. Dr. Stanley Shephard (Timothy Hutton) identified the primitive as a Neanderthal who was probably 40000 years old. Neanderthals were supposed to be located in Europe. So how could one be found in North America?

Hutton you did it again

anonymous, IMDb
27 July 1999
  • Summary: I really did like this movie. The reason for it is because Timothy Hutton(Shephard) acted so good in this movie that it makes you just want to watch it. In my opinion He is one of the best actors of century and when there is a movie that comes out where he is playing it just forces me to see it.
