What is there to say, you definitely won't remember this one
14 October 2017 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Incredible novel from great Norwegian writer Jo Nesbo has turned it's pages onto screen and once again book to movie adaptation suffers from same problems that always catch movies that try to portray characters and action that happens inside book and minds of readers. Movie follows Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender) and Katherine Bratt (Rebecca Ferguson) as they stumble upon mysterious killer that leaves snowman's while killing his victims. Michael Fassbender gives an interesting insight into Hole's mind and his troubles but it seems as he was given too little to work with and he did a pretty good job in that. Rebecca Ferguson (Katherine Bratt) was also a good part of movie as she tries to move and gives her best in everything but kept Harry at distance most of time. Writers of the movie script took great project but as you hear the lines and dialogues it is obviously that something isn't right. Director Tomas Alfredson (Let the right one in, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) gives his view of Snowman and it was sometimes slick but many many time choppy and just feeling that movie needs to project horror and fear was missing mostly, there are some great scenes and shoots but it seems that he just didn't know how to put it together. For the 119 min movie you will find last 20 minutes most entertaining and filled with everything that movie needed from the beginning because they are horrifying, tense and very greatly put together. There's a lot people that love Jo Nesbo and his work because it's filled with great action, incredible mystery, stunning character evaluation and much more. Harry Hole as detective in all those books deserves the better and proper portrayal because of potential that it could have in movie world given how Snowman changed and messed with Harry which wasn't seen very much in movie. In hope that movie won't get too destroyed and there could a possible sequel with his next book like Leopard that even much more to offer for filmmakers because this movie just might destroy that opportunity. 1.5/4
