When will Vanessa Hudgens stop playing the same old, troubled, drug-addict hooker type of character?? You've done enough of that, Vanessa. Try something else. Nicolas Cage gives his most solid performance in quite a long time, but unfortunately it's squandered by the film's by-the-numbers narrative and the lack of any emotional heft. The Frozen Ground is efficient and atmospheric, but also very mediocre and hollow.
