Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
For a film about three people stranded on a ski lift in ice-cold weather with little hope for survival, Adam Green's Frozen is not without its charm. The picture milks the dire situation for all its horrific worth, even if it stumbles a bit due to the high-concept trappings. Thankfully the great outweighs the few plodding moments, as a new entry in the "danger in everyday places" genre steps up to scare anyone who's ever put their trust in a tiny seat suspended by razor-sharp cables, with nothing but open air underneath them. Before the suspense begins, the dramatics are already set up thanks to a third-wheel situation between two old buddies, Joe Shawn Ashmore and Dan Kevin Zegers, and Dan's girlfriend, Parker Emma Bell. Tensions rise after Dan brings her on a ski trip that he and Joe had been going on since they were kids. The fact that Parker's a novice skier and slows them down doesn't help things either. Things get worse once they head out for a night ski just as the resort is about to close for a few days. Out of nowhere, the chair stops with all of them on it and the lights go out. Hundreds of feet off the ground, the three are faced with a rapidly dropping temperature and insurmountable odds that they won't survive the night, never mind a few days. To make a flick like this work, it's only to be expected that there will be some padding to fill up its 94-minute running time. To the writer/director's credit, Green manages to make those exposition-heavy sections of the running time as painless as possible. Even with those missteps, the harrowing experience is still worth the ride for adventurous audiences. They might wonder why the characters aren't bundled up more -- or trying out different ideas sooner -- but in a way, that's the fun of Frozen and the genre it's so heavily rooted in. By stepping up the stakes and keeping viewers on their toes, Green can add competent survival dramatist to his resumé. The fact that he was able to pull off the trick of this movie without it being laughable, all the while packing in as much style as he does, spells great things for the filmmaker. It's doubtful that viewers will easily shake off this film after they've seen it, which, in and of itself, is a major feat for everyone involved. The movie is hopeless one second and thrilling the next, inevitably leading to even more bloodcurdling reveals sure to keep the audience just as frozen to their seats as the film's unfortunate protagonists. Bundle up for this one -- you'll need the extra layers.

    If you like a good thriller, keeping you on the edge of your sea

    If you like a good thriller, keeping you on the edge of your seat, this is the movie for you! You've read about the beginning of the movie through the description and ratings, so give the movie time to get you past the first part. Once these three skateboarders start up that ski lift, you won't want to miss a minute.

    Amazing Movie

    Do you like scary movies? Do you like gory movies? Then you need to get off your but and go get Frozen. It is a scary, gory movie. It is a really good movie because setting works, it scary, and the actors are really good. Frozen is about a girl and her boyfriend and there friend. The ski resort was shut down. They talked him into letting then ride one more time. They got stuck on the ski lift. They were stuck on there for 7 days. The setting is amazing. They are in a mountain at a close ski resort stuck on a ski lift. It is below zero they all are getting frost bite. Do you think that is scary? I think it is very very scary. The setting is perfect and amazing. Frozen is a really scary movie. I think you would like it if you like scary and gory movies. I rate the movie 4.5 stars because it is scary. I think I is scary because of the setting and gory stuff in the movie The actors are amazing. What they do is amazing the girl¿s boyfriend jumps off the ski lift and breaks his leg but of course it is fake. I think in my opinion they actors did really awesome. You need to get this movie right now. The movie is amazing. I rented it on netflix. It is a movie you should see it. Rent it or buy it now. It is a really goood movie. I love it you really need to get this movie right now.
