Adam Green’s taut survival thriller is better than it should be: the concept and the characters’ behaviour are mostly plausible, the script is dark and funny, the acting is adequate, and the wildlife scenes are convincing. Sure, we can nitpick about continuity and tapered endings, but as far as low-key, low-budget filmmaking goes, Frozen is a minor success.
