Consensus: Writer/director Adam Green has the beginnings of an inventive, frightening yarn in Frozen, but neither the script nor the cast are quite strong enough to truly do it justice.

Frozen is a tour de force, not because of exceptional performances by the actors, but rather the outstanding directing of Adam Green, who also wrote the script. The script gave Green a limited area within which to work, and he carried it off superbly.

Frozen is good for five minutes of "What would you do if?" games. Then it's just stiff as a board.

Overall, it's a one note premise, where the characters, stuck up on a lift, have nowhere to go and quite fittingly the movie in turn, goes nowhere.

Adam Green's taut, toe-curling survival thriller is better than it should be: the concept and the characters' behaviour are mostly plausible, the script is dark and funny, the acting is adequate, and the wildlife scenes are convincing.

A stuck chairlift just doesn't exert the same primal terror as a roiling sea, and to make up the difference, Green would need a better cast and sharper dialogue than he has here.

You'll definitely recall this freezing flick the next time you go skiing. For the next 15 years or so.

There's not enough here for 90 minutes.

In those moments when we (and the characters) are paralyzed between bad decisions, we're as stiff with tension as an icicle.

Reinterpretation of The Snow Queen, Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairytale as an animated, female empowerment musical.

The fact that this film is tense and terrifying as hell and has three great performances is what compensates for a generally thin dialogue and the… More

The acting and script may not be up to par, but I thought the movie was decent. It definitely stirred up a great "what if & what would you do?"… More
