    For all its high-caliber talent mix, The Snowman is a largely pedestrian affair, turgid and humorless in tone. The cast share zero screen chemistry, much of the dialogue feels like a clunky first draft and the wearily familiar plot is clogged with clumsy loose ends. show more

    The Snowman Killer is one of those ludicrous movie bad guys who is both supernaturally smart and conveniently stupid. show more
