The Frozen Ground - Movie Review: Based On Actual Events Of Anchorage

The narration rolls on from 1983, when a 17-year-old prostitute and stripper Cindy Paulson (Vanessa Hudgens) is in hand cuffs and escapes from the clutches of her psychologically-disturbed client. She tries to explain to the police officer that an Anchorage bakery owner Robert Hansen (John Cusack) tried to kill her. The officer dismisses her plea as just a tale of a whore.

Around the same time an unidentified body is found on the outskirts of Anchorage. Sergeant Jack Halcombe (Nicolas Cage) investigates the crime scene and finds a used cartridge case in the grave. When media reporters question Halcombe about the recently discovered body as well as other bodies found in the area, he denies a connection between the murders.

But after hearing Cindy's story, Halcombe tracks her down and asks another officer about the man she accused. Halcombe deduces that Hansen, highly respected, married businessman with kids and who was previously arrested for indecent disturbances, is a methodical murderer.

Because Hansen appears to be a decent citizen and the complainant a prostitute, the police portray her as a lethargic, skeptical, misogynistic person and dismiss her accusations. Even when Halcombe amasses reams of circumstantial evidence against Hansen, the District Attorney refuses to act. Continue to read The Frozen Ground Movie Review in the slideshow.
