CINEMA REVIEW: @TheFrozenGround “Cage and Cusack reunite for the first time since Con Air”

Vanessa-Hudgens-Frozen-Ground-500x456

THE FROZEN GROUND is inspired by the incredible true story that follows Alaskan State Trooper Jack Halcombe (Nicolas Cage) as he sets out to end the murderous rampage of Robert Hansen (John Cusack), a serial killer who has gone unnoticed for 13 years. As the bodies of street girls start to pile up in Anchorage, fear strikes a chord with the public. Risking his life, Halcombe goes on a personal manhunt to find the killer before the next body surfaces. When a seventeen year old escapee (Vanessa Hudgens) reveals key information about the case, Halcombe is finally on the trail of the killer.

The Frozen Ground may not be everyone’s favourite thriller of 2013, it’s not “Silence of the Lambs” and not “Se7en” but it kept me engrossed throughout and I always like Nicholas Cage’s films.

Miss Hudgens takes a big step away from the Disney High School musical films and looks a promising  young actor. Cage and Cusack reunite for the first time since Con Air, but there’s no cheesy one liners. Its a serious film.

Worth seeing, well put together and good acting.  Score= 7.5/10
