Storyline

Alaska Trooper Jack Holcombe believes Robert Hansen is a serial killer who abducts young girls, tortures and sexually assaults them, then kills them. But Holcombe doesn't have enough evidence to get a search warrant for Hansen's premises. Holcombe knows that one victim, Cyndy Paulsen, somehow survived, so he decides to seek her help, but he finds that she's now a junkie with trust issues. Holcombe has to earn her trust; meanwhile, Hansen is still hunting and killing girls. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Great and Effective Old-Fashioned Thriller
16 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1993, in Anchorage, Alaska, the young prostitute Cindy Paulson (Vanessa Hudgens) is found cuffed in her apartment and she claims that she has been rapped and threatened by Robert "Bob" Hansen (John Cusack), a citizen married with children. The police officers do not believe on her words and Cindy returns to the streets and Bob is not accused.

Meanwhile Sergeant Jack Halcombe (Nicolas Cage) is assigned to investigate the murder of seven young women and the detective that found Cindy secretly sends her case to him. Jack believes that Bob is the serial-killer but he has no evidences to arrest him. Jack tries to earn Cindy's trust to send Bob to the court but she is afraid and tries to leave Alaska.

"The Frozen Ground' is a great and effective old-fashioned thriller that is supported in performances and not in explosions, car chases or special effects. Based on true events, the plot succeeds in keeping the attention of the viewer, despite the killer's identity be disclosed in the beginning. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Sangue no Gelo" ("Blood on the Ice")
