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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

You want to root for this little movie because it works so hard. But, finally, to not nearly enough effect.
Susan Granger

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

A crime drama so forgettable it practically erases itself as it runs, Cold Comes The Night has just one real selling point: Bryan Cranston.

"Cold Comes the Night" isn't worth a special trip to the theater. But it's definitely a sturdy, at-home pleasure if you're clicking through your video-on-demand options some wintry night.
