Just a mess of a film - The Snowman review by TH

Spoiler Alert
01/04/2018

You'd think a film directed by Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy, Let the right one in) and produced by Martin Scorcese would be half decent, think again. It has a feel of 'Girl with the dragon Tattoo' about it being set in snowy Norway and has a flimsy plot about a serial killer bumping off sexually promiscuous people and then building a snowman as his calling card with Michael Fassbender (Harry Hole, yes that is his name) stars alongside Rebecca Ferguson as the detectives. No real character development to make you feel remotely interested in the people, the editing in the film is shockingly bad, jumping from scene to scene poorly and the climax just poorly executed and rushed and to a degree laughable. That a side some nice shots of a snowy Norway but that a side a really poor thriller.

Could have and should have been a lot better! - The Snowman review by CS

Spoiler Alert
12/03/2018

I was expecting this to have depth and a slightly supernatural edge to it. Whereas films like the Hannibal Lecter series were quite deep and created strong character development, allowing the actors to really get their teeth into their characters, this film never really goes deep at all and a lot of what should be character development is missing. There's never really any strong explanation as to why the killer is doing what they do, how they are choosing their victims and there are very odd and disjointed flashbacks to another detective in the past. This could have been such a good film if only the script had bothered to delve a bit deeper. Fassbender's talent is wholly wasted on this film it's very slow, disjointed, missing pieces and also somewhat predictable!
