    Synopsis


    The Iceman
    Michael Shannon stars as notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski in this biopic from director Ariel Vromen (Rx, Danika). To his loving wife Deborah (Winona Ryder) and their growing family, Kuklinski was a caring father. But he was also a man with a dark secret and an unusual talent for covering his tracks. For nearly three decades starting in the 1950s, the suburban family man worked as one of the Gambino crime family's chief executioners, earning the nickname "Iceman" for his use of freezers in obscuring the forensic details of his victim's deaths. By constantly varying his methods, Kuklinski made it virtually impossible for investigators to assemble an accurate profile of the killer credited with taking over 100 lives. A protégé of seasoned assassin Robert "Mister Softee" Pronge (Chris Evans), the elusive contract killer struggles to reconcile his relationship with his sociopathic brother Joseph (Stephen Dorff) while nurturing a close friendship with his Gambino contact Roy DeMeo (Ray Liotta). Then, in 1986, an arrest brings Kuklinski's violent career to a sudden end. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      In "The Iceman," Michael Shannon, who plays a real life New Jersey hitman ..Kuklinski occupies parallel universes. In one, he works for Gambino family associate Roy DeMeo. Ray Liotta is in typically unnerving form as the Jersey mobster who initiates Kuklinski into his gang with a mix of smiling charm and abject cruelty. In the other world, Kuklinski dotes on wife Deborah (Winona Ryder) and gently engages their two daughters. He's built a refuge and guards it with vigilance. Chris Evans does a surprisingly dark turn for a guy owning the "Captain America" role. He plays Mr. Freezy, the long-haired contract killer based on hitman Robert Prongay, who keeps his victims in the freezer of his ice-cream truck before disposing of them. DeMeo hired Freezy for the same job he'd given Kuklinski. The rivals realize neither is fully trusted and begin working together without DeMeo's knowledge. All the performances in "The Iceman" command our attention. Ryder finds truth in the various modes of Deborah's life with Kuklinski: denial perhaps, a bit of fear as things begin to unravel, but mostly loving trust.
