“The winter sun rises. The frozen man melts. The inevitable cycle continues.”
The Snowman is a crime, thriller movie and is based on the book written by the Norwegian writer, Jo Nesbo. Being honest, I thought the movie wouldn’t be good because of the foul reviews, however, I liked it. More or less. It started out slow and a bit dull, but the story line was respectable, and I wonder why most of them have a different opinion about it.
It’s a story about a drunk detective investigating a series of brutal murders that happen only in Winter. As a lover of crime, I was too eager to watch the movie and it didn’t disappoint me, actually. I mean, the ending was a bit…let’s say, not perfect but hey, as long as the plot works, I’m okay with it.
Though I must mention, the scenes were a bit too abrupt or a bit too confusing at times. There were more cut scenes than a continuous one. Also, one more reason I sat to watch this movie was because of Michael Fassbender. I’ve taken quite a liking to him since the Assassins Creed.
Pointing out the culprit wasn’t too hard either and I thought there will be much more murders and a lot of bloodier scenes since the most crime movies I’ve watched are filled with abundant gore (I do write gore myself, so this didn’t get to me much) Although, I did love seeing Norway haha. I wish to go there sometimes to see the Northern Lights.
The plot was however, in my personal opinion, common and too simple for such a culprit. Now that I think about it, it was a silly reason to kill all those innocent women.
I don’t really recommend this movie but if you’re just looking to pass some time and if you like Michael Fassbender then sure, go ahead and watch it. There’s no harm in it whatsoever. I fairly liked it and I guess you might as well. Just don’t curse me if you didn’t like the movie, okay? These reviews of mine are entirely personal. Thank you for understanding.
My Rating: 2/5
