The Snowman REVIEWS

  • A disaster

    October 11th, 2017

    The Snowman is a disaster. It's not only a disaster, it's an unfathomable disaster. This film had absolutely everything going for it. I've not read the source material, that the film is based on, but it's being hailed as one the best books in its genre here in Norway. The director, Tomas Alfredson, has made some great films in the past and the cas...

  • Wow, this was quite the stinker!

    October 12th, 2017

    I just don't know where to begin... . ...well lets start with the story, a films core. The Snowman's plot and its execution was all over the place. It's not just that it was nonsensical and just laughably stupid by the end, but the movie was filled with scenes and complete subplots that were completely inconsequential and unnecessary. Some charact...

  • An interesting crime-thriller that is quite enjoyable despite all the hate it gets.

    October 18th, 2017

    As I read many reviews the two things people hate this movie for is: It's a crime-thriller and not a horror story like the book was. Because I haven't read the book I can't say on what level they differ, but the movie is still very interesting and exciting. And the other thing is the ending. I agree that it comes a bit fast and leaves you kinda ha...

  • It is not bad

    October 23rd, 2017

    Seen a lot of negativity in the reviews. Here's an explanation. 1. It is a 5th book from the Jo Nesbø, Harry Hole series.. All the cool and fairly ,let's say important, characters you meet in The Redbreast and so on. Those characters in the police force are in all of the book series. You only meet Katrine Bratt, which is a new character in the bo...

  • Worthy movie for every Movie lover Never to miss and lose.

    October 23rd, 2017

    It is a class thriller and gripping till the end. It is one of the finest in the class of thriller movies in terms of screenplay, photography and last but not least the story telling mechanism is stylish. Mystery is held tight and never could be revealed.. Worth for the money. I think the world of movie review must lay out certain key indicators t...

  • Visually stunning & constant tension

    October 15th, 2017

    The movie has a rapid pace from the first 2 minutes. You start to have ideas of who can be the snowman and with each scene you will change your mind. Loved the fact that it's not that easy to understand the action with back and forth pieces of the puzzle.. Not many will understand it! But those who will will appreciate how stunning the scenes wher...

  • A snowman in every crime scene.

    October 23rd, 2017

    The opening snow scene depicts an isolated hut where a kid's "Uncle Jarnis" drops in unexpectedly to grill his kid on Norwegian history. When the boy doesn't know the answer, the "uncle" takes it out on the mom, i.e. the uncle's mistress. When the couple repair to a private room, the kid builds a snow­man out­side. It's fitting as in the quiz th...

  • A noir masterpiece

    October 15th, 2017

    Obviously we have seen different movies. Alfredson's The snowman is an excellent piece of modern cinema, built not on the conventions of a thriller, like Nesbo's book(although of course it works as a thriller), but on the tensions between the unfolding images, the mesmerizing effect of a hypnotic pace that encloses us in a dark and cold vision, th...

  • Nice, moody thriller.

    October 14th, 2017

    Differs from the typical fare with a nice steady build up of suspense, gives satisfying clues, and in the end wraps up the mystery. If you are looking for Jigsaw, then this is not the film for you. I realize that some of the disappointed reviews were from folks who were hoping to be frightened. I personally have no love for shock value, and am nev...

  • Universal Movie Studio's Horror Specialists make a house call to . . .

    October 23rd, 2017

    . . . America with THE SNOWMAN, carefully crafted to show what's in store for us as we teeter on the Precipice of TrumpCare. The Basic Plot of THE SNOWMAN is that a fiendish demon (played by J.K. Simmons) already has assumed control of a backward frozen wasteland dubbed "Norway," and instituted TrumpCare. The institution of TrumpCare is highlighte...
