Product Description

Psychological thriller starring former comedian Lee Evans as Sean Veil, an ultra-paranoid murder suspect who obsessively films himself 24 hours a day to provide an alibi in case he is ever accused of another crime. But when the police come calling to investigate a new murder, the one tape that can prove Veil's innocence has mysteriously disappeared. Past and present collide as he strives to prove his innocence of this and all the other crimes that have been laid at his door.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Idea 17 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The concept of Freeze Frame is simple but interesting. Lee Evans was accused but acquitted 10 years previously of a vicious murder. He claims he is innocent and records every minute of his life and archives the footage in case he is accused of another crime and so needs an alibi. His life is thrown into termoil when his fear is realised but the tape he needs is missing.

The way the movie is filmed is very nice - very british and has a nice realistic feel. The characters are maybe a little clichéd but for the most part believable and the actors do what's required of them. Before watching you know that Lee Evans is either going to be horribly mis-cast or an inspired choice for the role. As it turns out - it's the latter. With a shaved head and face he also really looks the part.

On the whole I enjoyed this movie but felt that torwards the end it tripped itself up on it's own twists - maybe trying to be a little too clever.

Not a bad film but not a great one either. Watch it if you get the chance but don't pay too much for the pleasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best film, but not the worst either... 17 Feb 2006
By Rodj71
Format:DVD
I felt compelled to write because a couple of reviews of this film completely rubbish it. Amazon: how can you use peoples reviews of films when they admit to only having watched half an hour of it, then they turned it off? It is beyond me.
Yes, the film does take some time to get going, but stick with it - it certainly isn't the best film I've ever seen, by a long shot, but neither is it the worst. It is a bit silly in places and rather unrealistic, and I wouldn't advise anybody to buy it unless they really liked it, but it's worth renting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a viewing 9 July 2006
By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I thought this was a good film, although I agree that it is a slow starter. I think it is worth viewing for Evans performance alone. We are so used to his self proclaimed 'monkey man' antics and this is such a departure from that 'role' for him. It has an OK ending and the premise is quite good although not brilliantly executed. I'd say it's worth a viewing and being your own judge.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

4.0 out of 5 stars What happens when paranoia takes over 30 April 2005
Format:DVD
Being a huge fan of Lee Evans, I knew for a while that he was bringing this film out, and that it was not going to be comedy based! This film took me completely be suprise.
The main character (Lee Evans) was accused of murdering a mother and twin daughters years ago. The trial was scrapped, but ever since, Sean Veil (Evans) video tapes his every move. He home is fitted with cameras so that no corner is not seen, and if he ventures out, he has a "self-cam" so that all his movements, wherever he is,are caught on tape. He shaves his head, so his image will stick in peoples mind. Everything he can think of to prove his innocence if ever he was accused of a crime again.
However, when there is another murder, that tapes that would prove his innocence go missing. So he has to go on the run, and find other ways of proving his innocence. A reporter, who seems to be the only person to believe him, accompanies him, providing an interesting twist near the end.
The ending is tense as the plot twists in many directions, trying to find out who really did murder that family many years ago, and how it is liked to the recent murder. Lee Evans give a truly stunning performance, as a completely paranoid prisoner of his past. This film shows that Lee Evans is more than the brilliant comedian he is. The ending has so many twists, that at times it can be hard to keep up, but it doesnt take anything away from the film
This film goes to show what our society could turn us all into. A scary thought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lawrence Of Arabia it isn't, but............. 12 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In popular culture we are battered by countless reality programmes featuring cctv footage to entertain us.

This film is shot almost entirely with body-mounted and fixed surveilance cameras.The cinematography is awful;the settings are dark and claustrophobic.After all the plot is about Lee Evans playing a paranoid ex-murder suspect who films himself continuously so that he will have an alibi if ever he is suspected again of a new crime.His living quarters are a cross between an old prison and a disused factory:you would expect rats to share his habitat.

But this does help the plot magnificiently,and for me made the film interesting and exciting despite the lack of bright colours and 'proper' camerawork.

By adding a stunning ending to the film which was unexpected to say the least I would recommend a watch.
I did buy it after watching the terrific Rachael Stirling recently on James Martin's Saturday Kitchen Live:she was refreshing,funny,bright and her diction was perfect.I will certainly look out for more of her work as she turned in a marvellous low-key performance here.
No subtitles or extras on my copy which is a shame because I would have liked to know about the director's agenda.It's an intriguing production.

By G Brown
Format:DVD
Lee Evans is a comedian many will either like or intensely dislike; his manic stand-up is noted for visual gags. In Freeze Frame, he is unexpectedly good in a dark and initially disorientating thriller. As the plot becomes clear, a somewhat surreal concept emerges; a man is filming and archiving every second of his life because he claims he was wrongly accused of a horrific murder and wants to have film evidence in case it happens again.
There are few characters but all play well. The chief cop has TB and coughs blood regularly...hard to believe he'd still be at work when so ill. That aside, the sets, dark, forbidding and menacing, are very effective and Lee Evans plays out of his skin, portraying a man on the edge and finding himself being hounded and accused of another murder. His alibi dissolves and he's left exposed, terrified he'll be convicted.
It took me a wee while to get into this film but stick with it and you'll find it's very clever and the acting is first rate. Great ending with a brilliant final Lee Evans line that teetered on the edge of 'gotcha' comedy and added another star to my rating.
