    Relies far too much on an overdose of gore and a pack of hungry wolves to deliver its chills.
  2. Adam Green's Frozen explores a tiny idea exhaustively, and I mean exhaustively.
  3. If you actually sit through this enervating ordeal, you'll swear that time is Frozen.
  4. Frozen is good for five minutes of "What would you do if?" games. Then it's just stiff as a board.

    The acting wasn't amazing, sure, but i loved this movie. It was engaging and it really felt like something that could actually happen instead of the usual impossible situations like a zombie apocalypse that movies like this usually have. It's not without flaws but this wasn't exactly a giant budget Hollywood blockbuster and i think it did really well with what it had to work with. Overall I enjoyed "Frozen". Full Review »

What a dumb ass movie. (A) there are no wolves in New England and they almost never eat people. (b) their ski poles could have saved them lots of ways. They could have put one through the windshield of the vehicle that came by. They could have put the poles over the wires and slid down to the next pole. They could have banged on the metal with them over and over taking turns to send out a help signal. (C) they could have made a human chain from the lift with the lowest person dropping and the other two climbing back up and that person could have run for help. (D) they could have made a rope by tying their clothes together. (D) one of the boys could have gone hand over hand back to the pole with the ladder early in the evening before everything got frozen over. By the end of this movie, I was cheering for the wolves.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Lacking and unrealistic in so many ways. One of my favorite parts is how the woman falls asleep with her bare hand on the metal safety bar so they can have her gorily rip it off the next day. Pockets, anyone? Or even more annoying is the fact that none of them actually put up their hood or zipped up their jacket all the way (presumably so they can film their faces), while they get frostbite on their faces. I could literally go on and on, but I'll stop here and save you frustration and time - don't watch this movie. Full Review »
