    The Iceman is a vivid evocation of a remorseless sociopath sustaining a double life as a contract killer and devoted family man. Gritty, gripping and unrelentingly intense, Ariel Vromen’s film boasts richly detailed character work from an ideal cast.

    Shannon's restrained and mesmerizing portrayal, bolstered by an excellent offbeat supporting cast, makes for an edgy and compelling Mob yarn.

    So it's a bit squishy at the center. But the film is sleek, purposeful and extremely well acted.

    Ultimately The Iceman is a blend of Mafia-film cliché and the jarring reality of lives undone by crime.
