Thin Ice Reviews

Jeff Meyers
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Arkin, as expected, is terrific ... but it's Crudup who steals the show. His brutal annihilation of an ice cream cone on Mickey's dashboard is truly a sight to behold.

If Mickey were a little less sneaky, he'd be the perfect protagonist for these hard economic times.

Ingenious, cleverly plotted engima.

The strong ensemble makes the relatively weak script easier to take as the film skates over some treacherous rough patches but never falls through.

Brent Simon
Shockya.com

A winning, if rather drolly underplayed, black comedy that tosses its protagonist into a pit of moral quicksand, and then chronicles his flailing attempts to extricate himself.

Call me a sucker, but Thin Ice played me like a violin.

There's nothing like the macabre to bring intrigue to an ordinary life, and nothing like the logistics of body disposal to challenge an insurance salesman.

A brisk, entertaining feature with an unforgivable ending, making the viewing experience primarily about treasuring the filmmaking elements that do come together satisfactorily.

Terrific performances by Kinnear, Crudup, and Arkin highlight this terrific black comedy.

Film Journal International

Director Jill Sprecher and her co-writer sister Karen have surprisingly created a very convincing macho world of men, with all their varied quirks and obsessions, that is a product of some keen and efficacious observation.

May surprise with its conclusion, but the only real surprise is how long it took to get there and how glad you are when it's over.

The movie is familiar and generic, a pastiche that often reminds you of other, better films.

Kinnear and director Jill Sprecher make you feel Mickey's squirming desperation, even if the ending feels like a cop-out.

In the end, it's a little too much like its own main character. It wants the big results. But it's not willing to put in the hard work to really earn them.

With a wink, a nudge and a heaping portion of Midwestern charm, "Thin Ice" reels us in.

Director Jill Sprecher keeps things moving at a fast and funny pace, with the narrative's sleazy underpinnings well disguised by the Upper Midwestern niceties.

With a handful of blackly humorous jolts and some game performances by a good cast, "Thin Ice" is a watchable, if not terribly original, piece of Midwestern noir.

It would like to remind you of "Fargo" - what with all the snow, the grubbiness and greed, the exaggerated accents and off-kilter rhythms - and it kind of does, but in a dispiriting way.

An amusingly twisty trifle bolstered by a first-rate cast.
