The Frozen Ground is an intense yet subtle thriller that definitely deserves to be watched. As it based on a true story it does not have high speed car chases or gunasfights galore that one would expect in a move starring Nicolas Cage. It is a portrayal of a detective in the early 1980’s on the trail of a serial killer who has until then managed to stay hidden and unnoticed.
Nicolas Cage is the detective who comes into contact with a girl (Vanessa Hudgens) who managed to escape her abductor, played creepily and effectively by John Cusack. Even though she reported her kidnapping and rape to the police they felt disinclined to believe her as she was a prostitute and her abductor was seen as an upstanding citizen of the community who had an alibi (even though he had prior arrests for sexual assault).
Through the movie the police find more and more evidence suggesting that quite a few women have disappeared and realize that they have a serial killer on their hands.
From there on they start zeroing in on the serial killer but cannot do anything until they gather enough evidence against him. And a catasandasmouse game ensues where they are on the trail of the killer who is simultaneously trying to eliminate the only witness who can testify against him. Even though this is not a blockbuster there are some genuinely effective scenes in the movie, like when the killer takes one of his victims into the Alaskan wilderness and executes her in the forest.
Having been based on a true story the movie ends with the photos of all of the known victims who were killed. And that makes the movie much more realistic when you remember that what you have watched is not a fictional story but has actually happened.
Overall the acting is very good. Nicolas Cage gives a subtle performance as opposed to his usual manic acting style. John Cusack’s portrayal of the killer is superb and Vanessa Hudgens also acts well in her role. The supporting actors all do their part well (yes even 50 Cent) to make The Frozen Ground an interesting and watchable thriller.
