An ultra-paranoid murder suspect videotapes himself round the clock so he'll have a rock-solid alibi if he's ever accused of another crime. But, the one tape that could prove him innocent mysteriously disappears, and he's forced to go on the run to fabricate the evidence.

Critic Reviews for Freeze Frame

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Simpson and director of photography Mark Garret manage to place the audience well inside the disoriented, dystopian world inhabited by Veil.

December 9, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Evans is wonderfully vulnerable and insidious as the mischievously named Sean Veil.

December 9, 2004

Sadly, after a promising opening, John Simpson's feature debut dissolves into a disappointing hodgepodge of risible overacting and transparent plotting.

Top Critic

Simpson has a strong idea to work through, a good actor and a great set (a dank Belfast prison) and doesn't squander them -- even if the influence of Darren Aronofsky's Pi is perhaps a little too tangible.

August 14, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This low budget debut feature swiftly squanders an interesting premise of a man under perpetual self-surveillance to become a garbled and illogical thriller.

April 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Uma premissa original e inteligente que é muito bem explorada pelo estreante diretor John Simpson e pelo comediante Lee Evans, surpreendentemente eficaz em um papel dramático.

This dark, moody and atmospheric drama is drenched in black and gray shades, almost devoid of color and life. It has an interesting gimmick that is stretched a bit too thin..either the lead character is guilty and is mentally ill, or is innocent and the world is out to get him. The acting by Evans is on spot, however the surrounding cast tries too hard at times, and their performance suffers. The plot is a one trick pony that sustains life by continually twisting and turning, so the viewer is kept wondering till the very end, when more twisting is conducted than a chubby checker song. Orwellian in tone, this film is a fairly original piece of work thats worthy of your attention.
