The Frozen Ground Movie Review – 2013 All-Star Thriller

the frozen ground movie review

I think it’s time for a dark thriller, what do think?  Time for my The Frozen Ground movie review, lets see if that ticks all the boxes.

  • The Frozen Ground (2013)
  • Thriller
  • Written & Directed By Scott Walker
  • Music By Lorne Balfe
  • Starring Nicolas Cage ; John Cusack ; Vanessa Hudgen 

The Frozen Ground? So what that? Well it’s based on a true story about several young teenage girls who were abducted in Alaska. Nicolas Cage stars as Jack Halcombe the sergeant in charge of the case. He is on a quest to try to find the murderer and stop any further murders and abductions.

This is a tense thriller which has you knowing who the murderer is early on but the problem is no one can prove it. So the main point of the film is how to prove the murders guilt. The film has you following Nicolas Cage’s relationship with a young prostitute who is the only real witness and maybe therefore the only real hope.

Conclusion: The Frozen Ground Movie Review

Both Cage and Cusack put in decent performance as it should be noted does Vanessa Hudgens. It also looks pretty good with the snowy environment giving a bleakness, the direction is ok so all in all it’s not a bad movie.

If you like your thrillers this is certainly one you should consider, I’m not going to say that it’s a classic because it’s not but it is good. That said the film has enough going on tension etc to keep you interested throughout.


It’s a brand new film so to say so nothing to report.
