4.0 out of 5 stars Se7en this is not, but it is far more realistic., 14 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Frozen Ground [DVD] (DVD)
Closely based on the real serial killer Robert Hansen this is not an action film but a suspence thriller. Thought provoking it tells the stroy very well and down to small details. Cage is unusual in the role of Jack Halcombe (a character based on the case's detective Glenn Flothe) as a tired detective that starts to puzzle the pieces together in a much larger puzzle than he suspects at the start. Many of the victims (but not all) were prostitutes that no one missed or really cared for. In the rare occasion that they did escape who would take their word against a respectable family man. Cusack's preformance as Robert Hansen is very good. Not the evil in flesh like Hannibal Lecter, he is very evil in his own right and you get to see his real evil behind the front he presents to the world and even a glimpse of terror his wife is forced to live with.

So don't buy this expecting an Cage action flick or Seven. But rather a well told story of real crime.
