Very Intense

Not an easy movie to watch. Scott Walker has made a very gruesome, realistic, deeply disturbing (at times) work that shows the rotten depths of a psychopath's mind (John Cusack, a real gem of the film), and his main antagonist, a National Guard officer (Nicolas Cage, by the way, a very decent play here). Then, there is a young lady involved in wild world of pimps, drugs and alcohol, and she plays a key role here, too. The plot is very straight and often blood-chilling, and the twists of plot can really mesmerize. In fact, the movie was a bit slow sometimes, but nobody in the audience left the theater, 'cause it was real thrilling. The spellbinding Alaskan nature is a real must see here, it simply leaves speechless with its sheer vastness and beauty. Great job of cameramen, though. The story is clear from the trailers and here the whole plot untwists slowly for almost 2 hours, but this is quite good, as the movie never drags. Constant Alaskan snow adds up to the growing suspense. The film is not the masterpiece but worth watching and very strong as a message. Great ending, by all means

Eerie, Subtle, Affecting: well worth your time

This film hasn't received a lot of press or a wide distribution. Sadly, that's probably due to Nic Cage, which is a shame. First, he's very subdued and focused (there's no wild-man Nicholas Cage in this movie). In fact, he plays a deeply decent, dedicated Alaska State Trooper who becomes convinced that a serial killer (also very well played by a creepy John Cusack) is stalking women in Anchorage. The film downplays the gore, while showing the seedy and soul-crushing underworld where Cusack finds his victims. A very nice bonus is that almost all of the police officers shown in the film are hard-working people who want to catch this killer, but know they have to work within the law to ensure he doesn't escape them in the courts. Vanessa Hudgins turns in a very nice performance as one victim who escaped and was instrumental in identifying the killer. The director does a fine job of capturing the ghostly silences of the frozen north, where so many of the man's victims were buried. All in all, a fine, atmospheric film that is both thrilling and sad. Well worth your time.

A chilling realistic serial-killer movie

Was concerned Nick Cage would be the Nick Cage of late, but it was a nice surprise as he was absolutely fantastic. He really carried this movie and should be given the credit he deserves.Vanessa Hudgens portrayal was very good knowing her previous films were mostly comedic. She made me believe she was her character.Was hoping not to find out who the killer was until later, but as the movie played out, it suited the arrogance of Hansen. Thought Cusack did an adequate job with the material presented.The score was very dramatic and added to the feeling of the moment. Loved the outdoor wilderness scenes as they were mostly well shot, but the inside shots were framed too tight, but that was the style the cinematographer decided on , so it's a matter of opinion or budget.Overall I liked the movie and would rate this as above average. Well done Nick.
