The Iceman Reviews
Let's not beat around the bush, this movie is solely watchable because of Michael Shannon and his fantastic performance. He's just constantly great in roles that call upon his innate unhinged nature.
Richard Kuklinski's story is a really interesting one, and one that is worth telling; however, this movie should've been in the hands of a better director. It had its moments, but for reasons I can't really describe, nothing mattered to me - a distance of sorts. You can't really feel for any of the characters, except for Kuklinski himself, and that's only because of Shannon's portrayal. Everything starts to really mesh together, and the movie gets tangled and messy.
Regardless, The Iceman was Shannon at his finest, and warrants a viewing.
