"Get back in the fu**ing car"
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.

The story of Richie Kuklinski is absolutely fascinating. Unfortunately, Michael Shannon is atrocious and ruins what could have been a great movie. Deeply unattractive, wooden and boring, his performance no doubt would have made Kuklinski click his tongue in annoyance.

Michael Shannon's best part to date

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Great cast. Michael Shannon almost makes you feel bad for The Iceman! Kuklinski and his brother were shaped into the monsters they became by their abusive parents. Watch it now!

I love Michael Shannon and I think overall it's an enjoyable film but no where near as good as it should've been.

Felt like the timeframe it was meant to represent and mostly accurate based on the Iceman books and interviews.

I like Michael Shannon as much as the next guy but this script and direction could use some work. Good try though... 3 stars just for Shannon.

Ray Liotta really isn't a good actor.

Brilliant in all departments.

Based on true accounts of the serial killer nicknamed "The Iceman". Pretty violent in places and acting is pretty decent too.

Michael Shannon gives an impressive portrayal of a killer who is oddly likeable, as far as killers go. It shows the blurred lines of psychology and how it varies for each individual; that a person can commit psychopathic atrocities but still possess humanity.

Not good at all. Very cheesy, poorly executed.

What a Thrilled film this came to, It tells the story about a serial killer on the loose who has been two high on drugs, And I recommend people checking out who haven't yet seen the film.

Score: 7.5/10

It's not original, but it has pretty good performances, with an interesting turn for David Schwimmer. Michael Shannon was good in the beginning, but then I just became annoyed with him, and I ultimately don't think his performance makes the movie worth watching. This is a cliche movie, but with known actors that give good enough performances. Worth catching for free (cable, streaming) but not worth paying.

Eihän tämä kertonutkaan Kimi Räikkösestä joo, aiheena siis sarjamurhaaja, jolla perhe-elämä. Ei ollut niin hyvä leffa kuin miltä kuulostaa, en oikein jaksanut pysyä hereillä.

A decent mob movie with a good cast. Unfortunately, doesn't risk enough or have a good ending to be all that memorable.

Filme mediano com uma excelente actuação de Michael Shannon, um maior desenvolvimento da história faria deste filme algo para durar no tempo
½ April 8, 2016
Michael Shannon's chilling performance may be the only reason The Iceman makes a mark, but its directionless plotting and shortsighted script are glaring stains on what could have been a fascinating true crime thriller. An amateurish biopic with Oscar aspirations and a made-for-TV competence, the film never realizes the heart-wrenching potential of its fascinating source material in spite of its AAA cast. The Iceman is, at its heart, is more like skimming a Wikipedia page than a character study. Thank the heavens for Shannon, because The Iceman is a cold, ho-hum day in Hell's Kitchen.
