A bland and preposterous thriller in which Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston play unlikely partners in crime.

A tense little thriller that provides juicy roles for its deft lead actors, Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston, as well as some well-played action and several neat twists.

Cold Comes the Night is a serviceable low-budget thriller with a pair of strong lead performances and intermittently suspenseful scenes.

It's hard not to be impatient with a movie as openly lazy as "Cold Comes the Night," which is redeemed only by its performances.

Cranston, in a fake beard and dark glasses, seems to be enjoying his goofy act. Trouble is, this isn't the kind of movie in which goofy earns goodwill.

Sometimes the fight of your life comes in the dead of night. Good Film! Entertaining little movie. I can't come to any major complain in general. It was watchable and involving, had a very good pace and a convincing role of the lead criminal. Acting was fine. I also found the movie somehow natural and charming. Cold Comes the Night kept me tense and engaged all the way through. The characters were refreshingly multi-layered and the cinematography was fantastic. A struggling motel owner and her daughter are taken hostage by a nearly blind career criminal to be his eyes as he attempts to retrieve his cash package from a crooked cop.
