The Frozen Ground (2013)

murderer to justice. Based on actual events.

Director:
Scott Walker
Writer:
Scott Walker
Stars:
Nicolas Cage, Vanessa Hudgens, John Cusack

Cusack does a creepy good job of portraying the killer, and Cage does a normal acting job instead of his usual over the top

stuff.
The cop he plays was 2 weeks from transferring to another job in another state,
and he gets put on a simple case, which leads to the bigger one.
very realistic and original, and well done.

This is a good low budget scifi movie. It was the first of the 3 "Riddick" movies.
I saw the recent one first("Riddick"), and liked it. Then I found the first one, then later saw the 2nd one "Chronicles of

Riddick". Better to see them in order as one leads directly to the next one.
I think the first one is maybe the best, the 2nd one was a little out there and had a british feel to it, and @ desi, was made in BC canada.

SEE RANK
The Snow Walker (2003)
103 min - Adventure | Drama - 5 March 2004 (Canada)
7.5
A pilot and his passenger struggle for survival after crashing in the Arctic tundra.

My Summary: A arrogant selfish ex WWII pilot agrees to take a sick indian girl back to town from
way out in the tundra after being paid to do it ( he refused at first).
The plane then has a oil leak and he has to crash land in the middle of nowhere and he had gone off his flight path. The nearest settlement is 200 miles off. It is still summer but winter is coming soon.
He leaves the girl at the plane and says he will walk to the settlement, he doesn't do very good LOL so lucky he brought the girl on the plane.
Unusual movie, and you cant help but like the indian girl. I would have written a better ending , but some like this type of ending.

Director:
Charles Martin Smith
Writers:
Charles Martin Smith, Farley Mowat (based on the story "Walk Well My Brother" by)
Stars:
Barry Pepper, Annabella Piugattuk, James Cromwell
