The movie was good but at times it seemed to be boring. I believe it could've been alot better than it was.

Can't wait to see this movie. The movie trailer def makes me want to go watch it and plus you can't go wrong with this cast.

Cage & Cusack look like they really did an outstanding job portraying their rolls. Based on a true story, can't wait to see the entire movie...

Stellar performances are given by Cage and Cusack in this true-crime suspense thriller. Solid script. Although the outcome is predictable, the directing, cast, and script provide the suspense necessary to keep viewers immersed in the evolution of suspense.

Now what I saw in the videos on YouTube make me think to myself and say this is going to be powerful, excellent, and outstanding Performance by those great actors. They really bring the \"inspired true story back to life once again.

It’s handsomely lensed, and when Cage and Cusack finally go nose-to-nose, the fur does fly. Full Review

Slant Magazine
Taste and good intentions are only going to get one so far with a script this tone deaf and direction this ugly and monotonous. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
[A] solid if unmemorable true-crime drama. Full Review

Ultimately, the cumulative effect is deadening, just another chapter in an endless battle between overtasked and underpaid good guys, and cowardly baddies; the only real humanity in the film comes from Hudgens’ Cindy, who seems like a wild card of sorts, her character’s dimensions suggesting a world outside of the lurid details of this case. Refreshingly, she’s the only one in the film who refuses to be defined by the death and tragedy surrounding her. Full Review

What’s more depressing: that John Cusack chose the junky, un-exciting serial killer drama The Frozen Ground as his latest step away from John Cusack-y roles, or that Nicolas Cage chose to, at long last, be as un-Cage-like as possible? Full Review
