About this Film

The Snowman

ODEON says...
‘The Snowman’ follows the investigations of detective Harry Hole when he finds a pink scarf wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman, and sets out to learn what happened to its owner.

Harry works with the Oslo Crime Squad, and quickly learns that the woman who owned the scarf has disappeared. Looking deeper into the case, it becomes apparent that whoever is responsible for her disappearance has been around for a very long time…

Wrap up against the cold for ‘The Snowman’, a chilling crime thriller starring Michael Fassbender that brings Jo Nesbo’s hugely successful novels to life.

Not that bad

Reviewer: MichelDate: 2017-10-18

As a standalone film is not bad, it's just an average crime film, less than I expected. Being based in a book it could be much better than it is and the trailer teases too many scenes that are not even in the movie.

Pretty gripping

Reviewer: robsmileyDate: 2017-10-15

I enjoyed it, the film kept my attention, maybe not everyone's cup of tea, more of a crime drama than a real thriller maybe.

Glacial Mess

Reviewer: Robin86Date: 2017-10-14

Meandering directionless. Nonsensical investigation. Scenes in trailer not in film. Subplots and red herrings that go nowhere, yet zero real clues or progression for audience. Ending felt tacked on and. How NOT to edit a final cut. Irritating watch.

Cheers Robin86
