Description

From executive producer Martin Scorsese, The Snowman is based on Jo Nesbø's New York Times bestselling thriller series. When an elite crime squad's lead detective (Michael Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit (Rebecca Ferguson), the cop must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.

    I don’t know why the bad reviews, it was a good suspense movie. You have to pay attention, typical scandianvian plot. Wow what happen to Val Kilmer. Great location shots, burr.

    I found this to be an enjoyable movie. It was not as much of an action thriller as I expected it to be, but it did have its moments to shine. The cast was amazing, though at times the chemistry was not quite as amazing. It’s one of those movies where you need to go back and watch it again to grasp the entertainment in it. It just stinks that Val Kilmer can’t seem to catch a break now a days.

    Horrible. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Then, I was forced to sit through all that for a crappy ending.
  • This film is unfinished

    For everyone wondering what’s blatantly wrong with The Snowman: it’s an unfinished film with a theatrical release. 15% of the screenplay was never filmed. Future cult classic on your hands right here.
  • Poorly made, weak plot...

    Spoiler: You know within the first few minutes that this is filmed as a "B" movie with terriblly cheap green screen in the first few minutes when his mother breaks through the ice in her volvo. The shot of him through the window is awful green screen editing. Then the water entering the car is low grade CG. This set the tone for me for the rest of the movie. There is a list of great stars in this movie. I couldn't believe the list: Of course Michael Fassbender, Chloe Sevigny, Val Kilmer, J. K. Simmons, and more... But the story was weak; the budget was obviously very low, or eaten up by the A cast list; and the villian was underdeveloped and we couldnt' care less what happens with him. I thought the 7% viewer rating was a bit exagerated but I think this is pretty accurate. How does Fassbender go from Alien... to this! Very embarrasing for Michael. Lets hope the next Alien movie wakes him up and restores his reputation. Two stars because I'm a sucker for foreign filmed thrillers in the snow... especially in Norway or Sweden.. (this one in Norway). There was so much potential for a great thriller here but it just never arrived.

    Disappointing. We kept watching thinking the movie would pick up and get better. The ending was rough and unrealistic. Several of us watched and all shared the same opinion.
  • NOT WORTHY OF MICHAEL FASSBENDER

    I really wanted to like it and I usually love all things Michael Fassbender but this movie was slooow, boring, unexciting and could have been shortened by about 30+min.
  • Poor story structure

    Well shot, nice visuals, but the story is a whodunnit with no build up or connection, just a hey- we-need-to-wrap-this-up finish. Blam. Done. Weak structure.

    Saw this movie last week, and I fell asleep through part of it, and quit watching halfway. Slow moving, drawn out plot, just plain bad. Now, if you can't sleep, yeah check this out, you should be out in about 15-20 minutes.
