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.

Green orchestrates all this with some skill but not too much gore. A minor tour de force.
September 24, 2010
Fiendish, sweaty and tense as hell. One to watch through the fingers.
September 23, 2010
It's a stunt film that only just overcomes the challenge it's set itself.
September 22, 2010
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.

There's not enough here for 90 minutes.

Frozen is good for five minutes of "What would you do if?" games. Then it's just stiff as a board.
February 5, 2010
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.
February 5, 2010
In those moments when we (and the characters) are paralyzed between bad decisions, we're as stiff with tension as an icicle.
February 5, 2010
Another date movie-horror flick designed to scare tentative couples into each other's arms.
February 5, 2010
Tthe script is clunky, the acting strained. Too bad. Underlying the life-and-death thriller are notions about the ways coupledom changes and challenges friendships.
February 5, 2010
The performances and what passes for dialogue -- mostly extended bickering and screaming -- are so lackluster that it's hard to care about the fate of this trio for long.
February 5, 2010
Taking a dramatic turn from the slasher hilarity of his breakthrough feature Hatchet, writer/director Green plays it straight with a script that has the virtue of simplicity.
February 5, 2010
Adam Green's Frozen explores a tiny idea exhaustively, and I mean exhaustively.
February 5, 2010
A nifty little chiller that balances its cold terrain with an unexpectedly warm heart.
February 5, 2010
The threesome's constant conversation amid the building unease helps establish them as characters with which the audience can identify.
February 4, 2010
The film moves along, in its paradoxically static way, at a pretty fair clip. I look forward to Green's follow-up.
February 4, 2010
The excess of conversation never succeeds at humor, but it does make us hate the characters, whose speech seems to have just two modes: bickering and whining.
February 4, 2010
An entertaining, suspense-filled, sometimes wonderfully grotesque little scarefest.
