Storyline

Ten years ago, after being accused of a hideous murder of a mother and her twin daughters, Sean Veil became paranoid, filming himself along twenty-four hours a day to have an alibi if necessary. The small time psychologist Saul Seger became a famous forensic profiler and writer with the case and every now and then he accuses Sean Veil of the crime. The reporter Katie Carter believes in Sean's innocence. When the body of the missing Mary Shaw is found, Sean has to prove where he was five years ago. However, the tapes that can prove that he is not guilty have mysteriously disappeared from the storage shelf and Sean suspects that Saul has stolen them to incriminate him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Lee Evans, as you've never seen him before!
21 June 2004 | by (Warrington, England) – See all my reviews

Freeze Frame is an engaging psychological thriller which keeps you guessing right up to the final shot. It's a low budget UK movie which uses few sets and only a handful of characters. However the clever editing, where the POV switches quite frequently from the main movie cameras to one of Sean's many surveillance cams, gives the movie an edge of gritty realism and adds to the overall creepy factor.

That, combined with the atmospheric music and a surprisingly superb performance by a freakishly scary looking Lee Evans (who's movie career so far has been very poor, he was the bumbling Brit with a dodgy US accent in 'There's Something About Mary' and the bumbling Brit in 'The Medallion' with Jackie Chan) soon has you forgetting about the budget as you find yourself becoming more and more engaged in this well written, character driven movie.

On the minus side, some of the supporting cast performances are not the best and towards the end the plot almost spirals out of control. Personally I hate those type of movies where they try to cover up the fact that the writers didn't really have a clue how to end it, by creating twists within twists until the viewer ends up totally confused. Freeze Frame manages to pull itself out of that trap just before they went too far IMHO and the way it ends was the best they could do under the circumstances, although I could imagine some people feeling a little bit unfulfilled and disappointed with the conclusion. Personally I loved it and I highly recommend it!
