HE'S 40,000 YEARS OLD. Deep within an Arctic glacier they found him, preserved by a miracle of nature, brought back to life by a miracle of science. Now medical science wants to exploit him in the name of research. One man wants to stop them...in the name of humanity. But he'll need more than a miracle to survive...he'll need a friend. See more »
Fred Schepisi has said of this film: "Iceman is a way of looking at us. There is wonder in looking at someone who is really us from the beginning. I thought this film could have been, as novelist Vladimir Nabokov observed, 'The precision of poetry, and the intuition of science.'" See more »
When Charlie is hanging from the helicopters runner, there is no logical reason why the helicopter is suddenly flying above the clouds. As the team member opens the door and reaches out him, presumably to pull him in, it would have been much wiser to tell the pilot to at least descend. No pilot worthy of getting a helicopter license would fly that high with a person hanging off a runner in the first place unless his motive was to kill him in an unnecessary elaborate movie-plot fashion.

A prehistoric man from 20 to 40 thousand years ago is found frozen in a block of arctic ice. A research team find him, manage to bring him back to life, and try to figure out how to interact with him.
The performances feel genuine. The first dynamic is between the scientists who want to chop up his body and learn its biochemistry to better humankind vs those who want to study his habits and interact with him. The second dynamic is between the iceman and the ethnographer who gains his trust and friendship.
All the time I was watching it, I was angry at the ham-fisted incompetence of the researchers. Sure, I know, this is a movie and so the scriptwriters put in bumbling incompetence to push the plot forward. But just imagine if it a prehistoric man really were brought to life. It would be such a marvellous opportunity for interaction and learning, and even a halfway competent research team would make something better of it.
So, all the time, I was angry at the scriptwriters for cheating humanity and the iceman of this chance, and this didn't leave space to enjoy the film. 5/10.
