    This is a decent but grim movie. Particularly because it pulls no punches in that Cusack (Hansen) is no Hannibal Lector, i.e. cultured, charming (when not eating someone!), etc. but Hansen is a stuttering self-loathing social misfit who takes out his frustrations on people who ironically he considers subhuman (i.e. street walkers, and strippers) particularly, in the movie at least, the Hudgens character. In case a viewer of “The Frozen Ground” is left unsatisfied with the necessary compression of events, composite characters, etc. that are necessary to produce a movie of less than two hours in length “based on a true story”, and want to learn more about the real life serial killer Hansen and the case that inspired the movie one could do worse then read “Fair Game” (http://tinyurl.com/mqssp5z) by Bernard DuClos that was recently republished. Reading it as a companion to the movie will help the viewer of “The Frozen Ground” realize the liberties that were inevitably taken to make it suitable for the silver screen as well as understand elements of Hansen’s life and killing spree that the picture did not have time to delve into such as more of Hansen’s background (which early on indicated a propensity toward crime) and the backstory of the whole oil pipeline boom that produced the mafia controlled prostitution/strip bar scene that Hudgen’s character is entangled in.
