The Snowman REVIEWS

  • A disaster

    October 11th, 2017

    The Snowman is a disaster. It's not only a disaster, it's an unfathomable disaster. This film had absolutely everything going for it. I've not read the source material, that the film is based on, but it's being hailed as one the best books in its genre here in Norway. The director, Tomas Alfredson, has made some great films in the past and the cas...

  • Wow, this was quite the stinker!

    October 12th, 2017

    I just don't know where to begin... . ...well lets start with the story, a films core. The Snowman's plot and its execution was all over the place. It's not just that it was nonsensical and just laughably stupid by the end, but the movie was filled with scenes and complete subplots that were completely inconsequential and unnecessary. Some charact...

  • Started so promisingly too

    October 15th, 2017

    The snowy white landscapes of Oslo seemed like the perfect setting for chilling crime thriller The Snowman, a film based on Jo Nesbø's novel of the same name. The trailers promised so much and with a lead actor like Michael Fassbender on board, it had the potential to be one of the most intense films of the year. . When Harry Hole (Michael Fassbe...

  • What is there to say, you definitely won't remember this one

    October 14th, 2017

    Incredible novel from great Norwegian writer Jo Nesbo has turned it's pages onto screen and once again book to movie adaptation suffers from same problems that always catch movies that try to portray characters and action that happens inside book and minds of readers. Movie follows Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender) and Katherine Bratt (Rebecca Fergu...

  • I really wanted it to be good, but it's mostly a mess, with great visuals.

    October 12th, 2017

    Let's start off with me saying that I loved the source material when I read it a few years ago, and when I saw that it's gonna get a movie adaptation I was really hyped for it. This movie had every chance of being something amazing, the book it's based on, the director, the cast would all be amazing, but somehow they messed the whole thing up. . T...

  • Huge disappointment

    October 15th, 2017

    If you're a fan of Jo Nesbo, don't waste your time on this movie. Except names and building a snowman, nothing is like in the brilliant book. All important parts are missing, one plot cut and never explained, looks totally unnecessary. And I'm very disappointed with Harry's actor, he doesn't look like Harry at all. ...

  • Oh dear

    October 13th, 2017

    What went wrong? That's what I want to know. What happened? This movie had everything going for it. It had an amazing book (I'm a massive Jo Nesbo fan; he must be furious about this movie) as the source material, a talented director and a seriously strong cast. It had all the ingredients to be an awesome Nordic-Noir thriller. How couldn't it be? N...

  • cold and tiresome

    October 16th, 2017

    I found this film quite a laboured watch. It tended to feel like a stomp through knee high snow rather than the slick pacy thriller the trailer would have you believe it to be. The partnership between Fassbender and Ferguson feels contrived and as a result fails to grow the emotional capital required to make you feel anything towards the end. I al...

  • Spoilers contained :very Disappointing considering excellent Novel

    October 14th, 2017

    Jo Nesbo is one of my favourite authors and his Harry Hole series to me is just superb they way he has over time captured the very essence of all the main characters especially their human frailties as well as their brilliance.. On seeing original trailer i was really looking forward to this film version of my favourite Jo Nesbo novel but at times...

  • The Snowman Melts Into A Puddle of Dirty Water

    October 15th, 2017

    The 'acid test' of what is, or is not, a 'good film' is (in my opinion) is the question: . Would you watch it again? - For 'the snowman' the answer is a resounding NO . This is trying to be a clever 'physiological thriller' and fails, and fails badly. . It is clumsy, clunky, predictable and disjointed. It is hard to believe this was made by profes...
