What's next, Neeson killing criminals while perched on a Segway? Thankfully, there's more to Cold Pursuit than just the gruff action star grimly running over villains with a snowplow.

If you enter with an open mind and welcome a left-of-centre, comedically black approach to the revenge genre, Cold Pursuit could very well end up a satisfying excursion for those willing to take it.

Some of it works, while other parts feel desperate and strained.

So goes the storyline, and with each bend in the road, there is violence, including beatings, drug overdoses, and death by whatever piece of wood or steel is handy. One can lose count.

like Fargo meets Pulp Fiction, nowhere near as good as either but at least it has ambition

Take it all with a pinch of salt -- it's a darkly comedic parody on crime's worst case scenarios.

There's not much room for examining motives or moral ramifications in a story that funnels toward an inevitable conclusion, but loses momentum before it gets there.

The quirky tale plays out like Taken meets Fargo with shades of Quentin Tarantino, as dry wit and dark humour colour the proceedings.

Audiences would be better served to watch the Skarsgård version. Or, for prime twenty-first century black comedy, Martin McDonagh's "In Bruges."

It nails its tone as an offbeat black comedy, managing to balance the macabre and the silly.

It is a film full of quirks, but of little depth.

After a zingy, tight first hour, the concision gives way to flab. The executions become a touch mechanical, the gags start to feel forced, and the avalanche of lavishly nicknamed baddies loses distinction.

A wacky, strange opus of vengeful violence that'll please fans wanting to watch Liam Neeson do some good old fashioned killin'.

February 26, 2019
An insanely watchable slice of icy mayhem, self-amused but also self-assured right down to the last rib-tickling frame.

Talk about perfect casting. Neeson always looks great against snow.

It's a violence revenge film that would joke about how its tongue got so firmly in its cheek.

Cold Pursuit is just, well, cold. It is meant to be funny, you can see what the gags are supposed to be a mile off, but the comedy takes forever to warm up.

February 25, 2019
Caught noncommittally between action and comedy, it goes from being a cheeky genre meditation to a bore, spinning its snow-capped wheels.

It's lip curling in places...but there's not enough brutality or absurdity to make Cold Pursuit anything other than evocative of better movies.
