A VERY cheap imitation of Fargo and In Bruges - Liam Neeson should know better. Also, he kinda disappears for the entire second act, so it's a bait and switch re actors...

Cold Pursuit is an oddly gruesome thriller as the comedic elements are continually stitched throughout the story. Unfortunately, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

Also in need of escape? Anyone trapped in a theater who paid money to watch this awful dreck.

The weary resignation that Neeson brings to the role imbues the story with a melancholy quality, but there's also a sense that this road has been travelled too many times before.

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.

Dark humor, done well, can be biting and daring, but it feels contrived in "Cold Pursuit," like Moland was playing a desperate game of Coen Bros. Bingo.

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.

Cold Pursuit focuses on cliché ideas of Native American spirituality and places these othering conceptions high above the reality of discrimination.
February 22, 2019
Think 'Taken' but with Tarantino directing it blindfolded having typed the script wearing boxing gloves.

Audiences would be better served to watch the Skarsgård version. Or, for prime twenty-first century black comedy, Martin McDonagh's "In Bruges."
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 11, 2019
A failure on all fronts. It's not funny as a black comedy nor is it entertaining as an action movie. It feels like someone imitating Martin McDonagh and the Coen brothers without actually putting in dramatic payoff or punchlines.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

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 25, 2019
Caught noncommittally between action and comedy, it goes from being a cheeky genre meditation to a bore, spinning its snow-capped wheels.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 14, 2019
Not that Moland is after a realistic, philosophical interrogation of cold-blooded revenge anyway -- and given Neeson's own recent, deeply unfortunate racist remarks, that may be for the best.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 7, 2019
Like a bad Google Translation of Pulp Fiction where none of the humor works. It's not the movie you're expecting, but not in a good way.
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 8, 2019
Unfortunately there are uncomfortable parallels with all the vengeance stuff here and Liam's own ill-advised comments, but it's also worth noting that most of this feels drab and pointless.
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 8, 2019
Sadistic, slow-footed and inferior copy of a top notch Norwegian comic thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

The movie delivers, in its chosen way. But it's a soulless way.
