O roteiro cria uma série de subtramas que jamais se tornam relevantes e - o que é pior - mergulham no mais puro clichê.

The only thing that saves it from being total trash is the skill of the lead actors, who make the best out of nothing.

This latest hockey opus is standard polar fare, Picket Fences on ice, so to speak.

The film's aspirations were higher in the planning stages than what was translated to film.

Crowe gives the kind of thoughtful performance that suggests what Mystery, Alaska could have been if it had stayed in focus.
