The Frozen Ground Reviews

August 27, 2013
"The Frozen Ground" trucks in cliche, as most serial killer and police procedural films do, but the strength of the acting (from the leads down to people with only one or two lines) helps ground the film.

The Frozen Ground hits the familiar notes.

Hangs a tad slackly between thriller and procedural, but still holds attention throughout.
