Beginning of the 80th, Alaska. Desire quickly to earn a cocksucking of 200 dollars nearly (Hudgens) to the grave does not send 17-year-old Cindi. Her client appears the psychopath who forces it and slightly was does not kill – Cindi is possible to run away. She addresses in police where its business gets to Jack Helkombi (Cage). And that starts to suspect that exemplary family man Robert Hanson (Cusack) to whom the girl points, – the serial maniac with many corpses on conscience.
In Russia «The frozen earth» leaves in film distribution a month earlier, than in the United States
In a basis of «The frozen earth» real events, and, probably, lie therefore authors do not try to hide at all the identity of the murderer – that Robert Hanson is guilty, to us tell quickly enough. And further the cinema which more all is similar at all to an ordinary series television «процедурала», and on dramatization of any gloomy criminal history by forces of NTV channel begins. Speech, of course, not about technical quality (the picture quite decently is removed and played), and it is rather about the general senselessness and uselessness of «The frozen earth».
To the real Robert Hansen now 74 years, and it stayed 30 years from the term in 461 years. Remained practically nothing
Think. After all a terrible story – some tens victims, the cruel murderer, many years avoiding punishment, purposeful коп two steps away from pension and the young lost soul which by miracle has avoided death. Eyes run up, on what to press, in what party to dig, what genre to fulfill first of all! But the screenwriter and director Scott Walker about it does not worry – it removes trivial step-by-step dramatization of events. Came, told, went, looked for proofs, combined two and two, brought charge – everything, ours won, the evil is punished, all are free.
In «The frozen earth» there are no attempts to understand mentality of the person which forces and kills defenseless girls. It not the anthem the rested policeman who put private life on a justice altar. The picture sympathetically pats on the back "fugitive" Cindi, but thus authors are not going to dig that forces such girls as it, to hit in all heavy at so early age (though the film spends inexcusably a lot of time for zhivopisaniye of difficulties of her life on the street). It, eventually, not twirled detective and hardly a suspense thriller – the tape is constructed on dialogues, and all action in the film is reduced to that Cindi over and over again will run from under supervision of police and Jack is compelled to look for it. And, certainly, it not «a pytochny porno» – all horrors in the film are created off-screen.
