Cold Blood (La mémoire du sang) Reviews

October 1, 2019
It's not much of a mystery and it's not particularly thrilling.

Reno does his best with this sorry material, and he manages to milk a few good moments; overall the cast is good but there is only so much they and Reno can do with this sloppily cobbled together story.

A lonely girl searched in vain for the warm heart of a cold billionaire father, only to find that warm heart at the core of a cold-blooded assassin. Great premise, shoddy delivery.

An uninspired script and meaningless dialogue fill space while the viewer hopes for one of Henry's ice bullets to the head.

Nobody should have to sit through junk like this, even in summer, and I don't know anyone who will.

Cold Blood just falls flat. Secrets should be shocking, unpredictable, and strongly impact the story. Here they're predictable and lacks cleverness in discovering everyone's true identities and motives.

Generic, character-deficient and lacking in suspense or thrills, "Cold Blood" never kicks into gear.
July 6, 2019
The presence of Jean Reno in "Cold Blood" is undoubtedly meant to invoke memories of better movies like "Leon" and "Nikita." Sadly, that only exacerbates how poor this is.

... captures the visual details of everyday life in such a harsh environment, yet has difficulty maintaining suspense with its chilly narrative momentum and a procedural plot driven by far-fetched coincidences.

[V]iewers are more likely to identify with the cop's solitary goldfish, gazing out at a world that's both familiar and incomprehensible.

Cold Blood isn't so much hysterically awful as simply lifeless.
July 5, 2019
An utterly dismal attempt at a convoluted action thriller...lacks imagination, coherence, and basic technical proficiency.

[T]he whole of Cold Blood could be described [as] obligatory and unconvincing.
July 4, 2019
Petitjean offers a snoozy, incident-free picture, wasting Reno's time with a role he's played before.
July 2, 2019
Good acting by Jean Reno, and the scenery is amazing even if it is the Ukraine filling in for Washington state. But this crime thriller has no thrills or chills. The plot never heats up.
June 29, 2019
Traces of the Jean Reno we love are obscured by a convoluted hit-man thriller that's too obvious to thrill.
May 22, 2019
A dumbed and watered-down version of better, similar movies Reno has done before, especially Besson favorites like La Femme Nikita and Leon: The Professional.
