Consensus: A mystery that feels as mashed together and perishable as its title, The Snowman squanders its bestselling source material as well as a top-notch ensemble cast.

The overall outcome of "The Snowman" is definitely disappointing. Parts of this movie are gripping --- and even terrifying --- but the script and Alfredson's direction never capitalize on those moments.

A movie that fails to receive any connection to the bestselling book that adapted this film ten years later, The Snowman hardly relates itself to the mystery… More
