Iceman

Critics Consensus

A prehistoric drama with the heart of a western, Iceman uses classic archetypes -- and deft direction -- to tell a stark and simple yet powerfully effective story.

Movie Info

The Ötztal Alps, more than 5300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled nearby a creek. It is their leader Kelab's responsibility to be the keeper of the group's holy shrine Tineka. While Kelab is hunting, the settlement is attacked. The members of the tribe are brutally murdered, amongst them Kelab's wife and son, only one newborn survives and Tineka is gone. Blinded by pain and fury, Kelab is out for one thing alone vengeance. He sets out after the murderers on what turns into a grand odyssey where he must fight constantly for the infant's survival; against the immense forces of nature; against hunters he encounters; and, amongst the loneliness of the quest, against a growing sense of doubt over the morality of his mission.

  • One can imagine Richard Harris or Charlton Heston in the role, but without any star power, Vogel does quite nicely.

  • "Iceman" is almost like something unearthed itself: a recognizable B western sharpened as much by its glints of psychology as by its kinetic savagery.

  • We can... easily follow the unsubtitled narrative. Less clear is why the German filmmaker Felix Randau would have the imaginative idea of reconstructing the possible final days of Europe's best-preserved mummy, only to give him such a basic plot.

  • It's a reasonably engaging movie, but based on very familiar filmic archetypes.

    July 27, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Wide mountain vistas and claims of painstaking authenticity fail to disguise the dopey genre underpinnings of this overfamiliar rape-and-revenge drama.

  • The majestic landscapes add to the epic quality of a film that is bloodthirsty as it is original.
