The Iceman: A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A true life crime story almost more fanciful that something Hollywood could create allows the always scary Michael Shannon to once again deliver the kind of performance that will one day see him Oscar bound.  A capable supporting cast (not least Chris Evans) and some striking visuals, the only thing that stops this being a modern classic is a sense of familiarity that comes with the crime genre.  The iceman may be real but everything he does we’ve seen before. Well worth a watch.

Best Bit: Shannon is superb.

Rent, Borrow, Buy, Stream: Buy

IMDB Rating: 7 out of 10 stars

If you liked this try: Goodfellas (10/10) Carlitos Way (10/10); Scarface (9/10)
