The true story of Richard Kuklinski, the notorious contract killer and familyman.The Iceman is the electrifying true story of Richard Kuklinski (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, “Revolutionary Road”), notorious mob contract killer and loving family man. He earned his nick-name by freezing the bodies of his victims, disguising the time of death and throwing police off-track. He was a man who used his tendencies toward violence and detachment from consequence to create an idyllic family life. His family and neighbors believed he was an average businessman, having no idea about his deadly alternate life. Kuklinski killed over one hundred people during his life. He never felt remorse for anything he had done, except hurting his family.The proof that the movie sucks is that it was picked up by a non-major studio, nor even a major-indie studio. The studio releasing The Iceman, Millennium Entertainment, is known for dumping movies in a very limited number of theaters for one week and then releasing on VOD and DVD soon thereafter. Goes to show that a movie starring an Oscar winner AND three Oscar nominees can be a stinker.
Not to be confused with the 1984 movie Iceman.
