In the 1960s, Richard Kuklinski is working as a porn film lab tech until his mob bosses persuade him to change his career into that of a contract killer. For years, Kuklinski gains a reputation for cold blooded professionalism even as he raises a family who are kept in the dark about his true career. Unfortunately, mob politics ultimately forces him to secretly work independently with the psychopathic Robert 'Mr. Freezy' Pronge. As much as Kuklinski tries to keep his lives separate, circumstances and his own weaknesses threaten a terrible collision as the consequences of his choices finally catch up to him.Written by

A competing version starring Mickey Rourke and based on the Phillip Carlo version of The Iceman was in development at the same time. Ultimately this version won out. See more »
One hour, thirty four mins and thirty nine seconds into the movie when Richard Kuklinski is being arrested in his 1976 Lincoln continental with his wife, there is a December 2013 New Hampshire Vehicle inspection sticker that appears on the windshield when the camera zooms into their faces to see their reactions to the armed police officers approaching them.

Mr. Kuklinski, do you have any regrets about the things you've done?

Really well acted by the all star cast, and also written and directed just as well. A little slowly paced but this film still keeps your attention. Michael Shannon was outstanding in his role. 8/10 from me
