Frozen (2010) – By Brian Morton

When I first heard about Frozen, I have to admit, I wasn’t all that excited to see it. Three people trapped on a ski lift in the dead of winter…how can you possibly make that interesting or scary?! Well, I shouldn’t have doubted Adam Green, not only is Frozen scary, it will have you on the edge of your seat!

Parker, Joe and Dan are taking a weekend off and going skiing. And, like all good college students, they’re looking for a way to do it for free…or at least as cheap as possible. And, they do this be bribing the ski lift operator to let them on. And that’s where the problem starts! When bad weather is rolling in and the ski resort is closing for the weekend, our three heroes find themselves sitting on a ski lift with no one knowing that they’re out there, and no one due to return to the mountain for a week!

Now, you might be like me and be thinking to yourself, I really can’t sit for an hour and a half and watch three people sit on a bench in the sky. Well, you, like me, would be dead wrong! Frozen is the best possible film making, the story is believable without being predictable. These three people do everything you might think of to get down on their own, with the same consequences that you can imagine. I won’t give away the ending, but, suffice it to say, that Frozen will have you feeling everything that these three feel and you’ll find yourself rooting for them until the bitter (cold) end.

I’m giving Frozen 4 out of 4 cigars, it’s an amazing story, told well with great acting. And, afterward, you’ll not only want to skip this year’s ski season, you’ll find yourself warning others against going! You can find out more by heading over to
