David's Review of The Iceman
Despite a good central performance from Michael Shannon, this is mafia cliches on parade. Nice to have Winona Ryder back in a leading role (the dutiful, yet clueless wife), but as outrageous & hard to believe the story of a working father who was really a a hitman for many years, the construction and story left much to desire. Little tension, just two solid performances in an otherwise forgettable drama. ** 1/2 out of 4 stars.
