Product Description

Product Description

Ariel Vromen directs this gritty biopic tracing the career of New York contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon). After convincing his Catholic wife Deborah Pellicotti (Winona Ryder) that he works for Disney when he in fact produces porn videos, Polish-American Kuklinski soon finds himself on the payroll of local mobster Roy Demeo (Ray Liotta) as an 'enforcer'. As he warms to his new role amidst the New Jersey underworld, despatching 'contracts' with clinical precision, a striking contrast begins to build between that of the outwardly devoted family man and the ruthlessly efficient, emotionless killer.

The Iceman is all about Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon), who functioned as a contract killer for the mob from 1966 to 1988. He's presumed to have assassinated over 100 people. A mob middleman (Ray Liotta) is dazzled that Kuklinski shows no fear with a gun in his face, and so the guy gets hired to rack up the corpses. At the same time trying to keep his immoral secret away from his family.
The interesting part of the film is in the aspect of 'Does Kuklinski genuinely love his wife and two daughters? how can he with all these cold blooded murders behind him..
To that the director and script writers do not necessarily do justice to the rationale and psyche of the man..though perhaps thats the point..you can never really explore such evil.which makes the ending even more of a mind boggler as thats the most touching and profound part. The film is not really given time to breathe though which was a concern and is heavily edited and feels rushed at points with big time jumps and strange continuity.
Shannon holds the whole of the film together and doesn't lose his grip. Richard Kuklinski seems tailor made for Shannon, an actor who on the screen and stage has proven his complete expertise with actualizing individuals verging on complete mental instability. He truly is mesmerizing and assured in this film and fast becoming a fave actor of mine. intensity levels are at maximum with Shannon.
A who's who of actors past and present make for some minor chuckles. David Schwimmer's tracksuits and pony-tail being of considerable jesting value. Oh and Agent Johnson from Die Hard makes an appearance. No, not him, the other one.
There are better films of this nature out there and as a bio-pic The Iceman just about gets by in a matter of a fact way.

This is a biopic of mob killer Richard Kuklinski. Whilst he certainly killed a lot of people, he is not a serial killer in the traditional sense, since the majority of these killings were on behalf of whomever ordered the "hit". This is just a technicality though, and does not really impact the film whatsoever.

The story is told at a reasonable pace, there is a stark contrast between Kuklinski the family man and Kuklinski the killer. There is plenty of violence as you would expect, but it is stylistically done and not graphic or gory. The film is well acted with a great cast, Winona Ryder in particular is excellent.

This film is not as suspense filled or action packed as some films I watch, but I did not feel that it dragged, I had read about Kuklinski before watching so I had an idea of what to expect. I thought it was a fascinating look at his life and an era gone by but not that long ago. If you enjoy mobster movies and/or biopics, this is a good, solid film.

The film is based on the true life story of hitman Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon). Richard starts out making copies of porno films for the mob when Roy Demeo (Ray Liotta) recognizes his talent and turns him into a hitman. The story goes that his family didn't know anything about his hitman life, most likely made up by their attorney. It is said he killed over 100 men, although we only get the main hits. A montage of hits done to some good background music would have given us a better feel for his notoriety. One story is that Kuklinski killed Hoffa. The film avoids that controversy.

The film is gritty, but doesn't offer the action of a fictional production. Richard lived a quiet life and didn't flaunt his wealth, a simple requirement for someone to be a long term hitman. By the end of the film, you start to sympathize with the Iceman. On the negative side, I was really expecting accents from the folks in New Jersey. Winona Ryder sounded more like she was from Ohio, as did most of the cast.

Realistic film. Worth viewing as a history or as crime drama.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex and nudity.

I was drawn to this movie because it stars Michael Shannon, who is wonderful in everything (that shamefully bad Superman pish notwithstanding). Sadly, The Iceman is considerably less than the sum of its parts, which include a compelling main character with a terrific story, restrained direction and an impressive cast. The problem is that it is almost entirely derivative of *insert name of any gangster/crime movie of the past 30 years here*. All of the characters and scenarios - true story or not - feel plucked straight out of another, superior film. It's not that is isn't interesting, but it can't help but be an unrewarding and, frankly, boring experience due to its contentedness to simply rehash all of the tropes of this type of movie. Technical merits on the blu ray are first rate. Extra features a bit of a non-event. Much like the movie.

First of all the Iceman is not a serial killer, he is a hit man for the Mob. This is not an exciting film, more of a docudrama although it looks very authentic and the cast of well known actors does a very good job.
The story follows the life of Richard Kuklinski who works in a porn lab till he is discovered by the local mob boss played in usual menacing style by Ray Liotta and recruited as a stone cold killer. Michael Shannon is so convincing in the role that it is hard to imagine him playing anything else. The real Kuklinski is believed to have killed over a hundred people but the death toll in this film is a lot lower.
Watch out for Chris Evans and David Schwimmer playing well out of their normal fields and doing a great job of it.
You'll probably enjoy this most if you're into organised crime dramas.
