NOTHING LIKE THE BOOK TOO MUCH WAS LEFT OUT OF THE MOVIE A BETTER JOB COULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY THE WRITER THAT MADE THE BOOK A GREAT SUCESS

Excellent acting all around. Good to see Ryder back in the saddle...did a great job as the innocent wife. Had a problem knowing who was who because the bad guys all looked alike and in muted dark lighting. Beautiful contrast between K's brutality on one hand and his family tenderness on the other.

Hate to say it ********** a waste of time and money. Was familiar with the story and am fond of actors Michael Shannon and Ray Liotta but this film never goes anywhere and after it was done, I thought to myself that I wished I was one of Kuklinski's victims :-) to avoid the torture of viewing it.

A well done movie based on an amazing true story.

Ultimately, this is a grim (both visually and thematically) character study of an unsympathetic character, leaving Shannon, who manages to deliver another impressive performance, twisting in the ice-cold wind. Full Review

Shannon's restrained and mesmerizing portrayal, bolstered by an excellent offbeat supporting cast, makes for an edgy and compelling Mob yarn. Full Review

The Iceman is a vivid evocation of a remorseless sociopath sustaining a double life as a contract killer and devoted family man. Gritty, gripping and unrelentingly intense, Ariel Vromen’s film boasts richly detailed character work from an ideal cast. Full Review

It's an unsettling piece that reminds us how even monsters aspire to living the American dream. Full Review

New York Daily News
As Richard Kuklinski, the Garden State guy who sleepwalks into an infamously deadly life he was born for, Shannon hits a whole other level. Full Review
