Prostitutes, Crazy serial killer, Dark cold night, and believable acting, all go for a slightly above average film.

It's about time Nicolas Cage decided to try again, and The Frozen Ground is proof that there is still a good actor behind the craziness. The film retells the hunt for a serial killer in Alaska. As of late, both Nicolas Cage and John Cusack have been turning in beyond lazy performances, especially John Cusack with his straight to DVD ventures. But here, both actors deliver in fine form, and help elevate this film above it's television movie feel. That's the biggest problem I had with this film. It all plays out like an extended episode of Law & Order or CSI. There isn't much of anything that is special or that hasn't been seen before. Other than that glaring issue, the film is good, and should act as nothing more than proof that these two actors are still good, they just need to give the effort.

Dark and gripping, entertaining film based on true events

This is a pretty good movie! Even Nicolas Cage, who I think is a terrible actor, is okay. A serial killer is loose in Alaska and Cage has to catch him. Some plot holes, and strange police procedures, but it held my attention and was interesting. I really liked the photo tribute at the end. That was well done!

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.

With this much talent it should have been a lot better then a run of the mill law and order episode, but it wasn't.

Nicolas Cage is on top form here, with John Cusack at his silent worst. It might be thrilling and has some interesting ideas, but it doesn't have the strength of its convictions, and the exploitative stripper sub-plot feels out of place.

Movie was quite slow at the start but became better as it progressed. Really well acted, as this was based on a true storyline and really a very sensitive subject. I wouldn't want to watch this movie again, it made me feel quite sick at the end.

Decent little thriller. Was pretty impressed with both Cage and Cusack's performance.

Wonderful film with powerhouse performances across the board.

Instead of what could have been a tense and interesting story, we are given a poorly shot and directed B-movie with only one solid performance out of the whole cast. It does however, pick up near the ending, which saves it from complete ruin.

Great biography film. It has a real gritty and believable feel to it, not to mention a great cast. The end revelation sends a little chill down your spine.

John Cusack is amazing in this role, how can he go from a comedy self putty guy to a creepy arkwrd murder . He is an actor! Other than John Cusack showing he can play other roles this film doesn't do justice that this is based on a true story, a little too simple with the detective elements. However makes you wish to find out more about what happened.

This film is pretty dark -not for sensitive viewers. I found it shocking that Robert Hanson may have killed up to 30 women over a number of years, but was only convicted for murdering 17.
