Movie Info

Robert Saunders (Dylan McDermott), a New York City mechanic is knocked unconscious at his birthday dinner and wakes up to find himself locked inside the restaurant's walk-in freezer. But why he's there - and how he'll survive - will reveal a chilling nightmare of mistaken identity, the Russian mob, a missing $8 million, and a wounded cop (Peter Facinelli) who may hold the key it all. The temperature is dropping. The fear is growing. And for a man caught between frozen death and vicious thugs, what happens next may lead to the most cold-blooded twist of all.(c) Anchor Bay

Critic Reviews for Freezer

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

A mediocre work built on a flimsy, nonsensical premise that squanders its modest potential with a cornucopia of bad plot twists.

An economical yet expansive thriller.

McDermott does his best to make Robert a fearless, wisecracking smart-ass in the early Bruce Willis mold, but he's defeated by a script so dopey that its best stab at a witticism is "Baby, I wouldn't give you the ice off my eyebrows."

Pardon the obvious pun, but as a thriller, Freezer left me cold.

No one involved with the making of this movie should be allowed to work again.

McDermott having a grand old time here as a Willis-style wiseass, while the production organizes levels of punishment for the leading man, creating a passably entertaining B-movie.

Audience Reviews for Freezer

Not too bad. Actually pretty good little low budget thriller with one of those popular twists I didn't see coming, but enjoyed.

I used to work in freezers much colder than this for much longer periods of time and came out fine. Clearly our protagonist is a bit of a softy. That said, I found Freezer surprisingly enjoyable. To be fair, the past few movies in a row I've seen have all been unequivocally horrendous, so maybe it was just "less bad" as opposed to "good". But I did find myself entertained this mostly-predictable mystery and its wise-crackin' lead. It managed to be more interesting in a fifteen foot fridge than a lot of films I've seen recently managed to be across the whole bloody planet..

Trying to provide surprises doesn't work if every part of your movie doesn't work, including the surprises.
