The Snowman is not the worst film I’ve seen this year but for a thriller it’s really not that thrilling. My advice is that you save your money or just watch Unlocked.
The Snowman just seems like a TV series that managed to get enough money to make a movie; the fact that it’s based on a bestselling novel by Jo Nesbøl is baffling.
