A generous throwback to those cinematic days when even familiar tales could be told with enough verve to initiate excitement and delight.

The film's quality of the acting is not matched by more adventurous material. Without its two lead stars, Cold Comes the Night would be little more than a glorified DTV also-ran.
August 18, 2014
Cranston has plenty of menace left over following the end of Breaking Bad, and his fans will forgive the distracting Polish accent he keeps up through the film.
March 3, 2014
The plot and characters all appear to be consequences of a group of writers that just didn't have a single iota of originality among the three of them, and as a result, it's simply not worth your time.
February 26, 2014
...a better-than-average thriller...
February 6, 2014
Derails in the end, trying to neatly wrap-up a picture that demands a more sophisticated conclusion, but the basics sustain allure, especially when they're competently performed.

Cranston's accent is Dick-Van-Dyke-in-Mary-Poppins-bad.
January 11, 2014
The film will leave you positively chilly ... and wishing Eve's talents had been suited by a better movie.
January 10, 2014
Viewers who aren't desperate to see Bryan Cranston play an offshoot of Walter White would do well to instead seek out past noirs that have made more out of this premise.

Might have been at least a little diverting had even an ounce of ingenuity been applied.

"Cold Comes the Night" provides Eve with an opportunity to showcase yet another side of her talent.

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.
January 9, 2014
Cold Comes the Night is a serviceable low-budget thriller with a pair of strong lead performances and intermittently suspenseful scenes.
January 9, 2014
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.
January 9, 2014
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.
January 9, 2014
"Cold Comes the Night" mines the sort of B-movie territory elevated by the likes of "Fargo" and "A Simple Plan," but minus the dark humor and the inexorable sense of dread.
January 9, 2014
You want to root for this little movie because it works so hard. But, finally, to not nearly enough effect.

Suspenseful, low-budget neo-noir thriller, loaded with a pervasive aura of treacherous violence and atmospheric isolation.
