Cold Pursuit Reviews

December 7, 2020
The primary antagonist is a misstep, considering how much time is devoted to his character development.

The shooting scenes are bad, the story is a boring mess, and the villain is so cheesy, that he could've appeared with Hulk Hogan in a 1987 WWF show. [Full review in Spanish]

The director seems to take greater delight in laboriously killing off his characters than he does in delivering jokes.

The more people that die, the less interesting and funny it becomes, until it becomes a task just to see it through to the end.
September 18, 2019
The dark humor that made [the original] really daring, strange, and cool just somehow gets lost here.

The end of the road for Neeson's Man with a grudge action hero.

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.

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.

Audiences would be better served to watch the Skarsgård version. Or, for prime twenty-first century black comedy, Martin McDonagh's "In Bruges."
February 28, 2019
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.
February 25, 2019
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.
February 24, 2019
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.
February 24, 2019
The whole tone of this glib black comedy, with its cartoon bad guys and conspiratorial wink with each addition to the body count, seems rather dated.
February 23, 2019
I love when an actor just makes a choice... but so much of this is lost in translation outside of that one brilliant moment.
February 22, 2019
Think 'Taken' but with Tarantino directing it blindfolded having typed the script wearing boxing gloves.
February 22, 2019
It's a deeply unpleasant picture, all the more offensive for its veneer of comedy, stretched ever-more thinly over a carnival of brutality.
February 21, 2019
[Neeson] has none of the comedic skills required to pull off the farcical nature of this Coen brothers-esque black comedy.
February 21, 2019
As the body count rises, so may the audience's feeling of indifference.
