A relatively cheesy popcorn flick but you kind of know that going on. Not every film needs to be citizen kane and sometimes you just want to have fun.
“The Snowman” is a murder mystery, based on the novel by Norwegian author Jo Nesbø. Something was definitely lost in translation, not between Norwegian and English but between the original novel, the script, the filming and the cutting room floor. The story was so convoluted it was mindboggling. One had the feeling that many of the subplots were partially dropped along the way leading to pointless story lines, with too many characters. Perhaps readers of the novel would have more of an appreciation. I had no idea what was going on. I had trouble differentiating between the similar characters and their relationships to one another, up until the end of the film. Spoiler: This film was not thought provoking, deep or interesting. The cinematography of the snowy stark landscapes of Norway was a plus. I can’t comment on the acting since the script was so bad, most of the actors didn’t had a chance to shine.
A wonderful, thought-provoking film, with stunning visuals. The sound was deafening at times to the point that it hurt. Not a mivie for the dull and dim-witted. A definite classic!
The plot of the movie was made for adults. Not for children. This movie had an interesting plot and complex ideas.
We got free tickets to watch this movie from our R points. Glad we used because the movie was great. We felt rewarded with this movie.
This movie have many good parts to keep remembering for a long time.
😘. Best movie to watch before Thor.
This movie gave me an idea for my costume for the next Comic Con in San Diego. I loved some of the designs from this movie.
IMAX was the best way to watch this movie. :)
We saw the movie on a regular screen. All the tickets were sold out for the 3D. Still seeing the movie on 2D did not take away the enchanting experiences from this movie.
