Masterpiece paranoia (10/10)
By Jack on 2015-12-26 STUNNING OPENING SCENE
"Ice" opens with a visually stunning sequence, which is one of the best opening sequences of the show. It is particularly violent and interesting. As usual, most episodes of the show are either pretty good or pretty bad, and you can see it right from the start. Either it works beautifully, either it fails miserably. Rarely episodes are in between. This is especially true here, knowing that "Ice" is between "Ghost in the Machine" and "Space", two of the worse episodes of the series.
FIRST SECLUDED EPISODE
Visually stunning, the episode embarks us on a journey in a secluded location, which is a new for the show. This will become a tradition in the show, with following episodes such as "Darkness Falls", "Firewalker", "Dod Kalm", "Agua Mala", "Roadrunners" (to an extent), "Vienen" and "John Doe" (also to an extent).
All characters are very well constructed and casted.
The atmosphere is brilliant, going so high as Mulder and Scully almost shooting each others and angry at each others for the very first time. David Duchovny, which usually gives low-key performances, delivers in "Ice" a great performance. He's never as good as when the stakes as high and that he is pissed.
A perfect classic. 10 out of 10.
