The Iceman (2012)

The story of Richard Kuklinski, the notorious contract killer and family man, whose wife and daughters never had any clue about his real profession.

Unfortunately, this fact-based story gets a quite formulaic treatment, but the movie does offer a good cast, and Michael Shannon's stellar performance saves the day.

Maltin***: "Tough, fact-based character study/crime drama...well made and extremely well acted, though it lacks the depth of Scorsese's GOODFELLAS and such TV series  as The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire; not surprisingly, actors from all three...are cast here."
