Movie Reviews

An incredible personal look at the motivations of a killer

"I first picked up this title when I was browsing through the "new movie" section at blockbuster about a year ago. I was looking for a mafia-type movie and I ended up leaving the video place pleasantly suprised. The title gives an in-depth look into the life or Richard Kuklinski, a family man on one side, and heartless mafioso on the other. Kuklinski is featured almost the whole time in the documentary; only a few other people (like the agent that brought him down) are interviewed. He gives the viewers a sense of motivation for why he went into a life of crime, which stemmed from an abusive, heartless and non-loving family. He also goes into his different methods of murder (poison was his favorite; non-messy and hard to trace). We also see a side of him in which he regrets a handful of the murders. It really moved me when he talked about how he gave one man an hour to pray before he killed him and how he regrets going through with it. If you want a documentary that will move you and inform you at the same time, The Iceman is what you should be watching tonight."
A trip into the mind of a man who killed for a living.

"Quite interesting documentary about Richard Kuklinski, who whacked people for the Gambino Crime family and killed anyone who could testify against him & also set up his own "kill for money" operation. Although I was sympathetic to his "wanting to take care of his family", but truly the guy was sick & should have been given the death penalty.

The stories of him doing contract hits are really interesting & it was even funny to know that one of his accomplices (who he later killed) used a "Mr. Softee" Ice Cream truck while going out on contract hits.

It's a good documentary although a bit shocking.
I recommend it."

"This DVD does not contain part 3 (the psychiatrist interview). Buy the other DVD The Iceman Interviews."

"Since the other DVD I purchased at the same time (the iceman interviews), after contacting the author of the book titled "The Ice Man Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer" by Philip Carlo via his email address - as it appears in his book, I discovered to my dismay that this DVD comprised the first two of the three interviews contained in the second DVD. Had this information been contained in the 'description' of the DVD comprising only two interviews then I could have avoided the clear waste of money of buying them twice. The second DVD was all I needed and I could then have purchased something else with the money saved. In short the DVD "the iceman : Confessions of a Mafia Hitman" ought to be removed from publication entirely and only the second DVD "the iceman interviews" (comprising both the interviews of the former DVD together with the third interview of 'The Iceman and the Psychiatrist') remain available for sale."
