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

The dark humor that made [the original] really daring, strange, and cool just somehow gets lost here.
March 7, 2019
It nails its tone as an offbeat black comedy, managing to balance the macabre and the silly.
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 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.

"It's a good movie," Neeson said at the end of his unsatisfactory ABC interview. We'll give him that.
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
Yes, the revenge is still there, as is the violence...Yet there is also originality and moments of startling tenderness.
February 21, 2019
As the body count rises, so may the audience's feeling of indifference.

A chilly business.
February 20, 2019
A typically taciturn turn from Neeson is surrounded by a colourful cast, gallows humour and complete disrespect for cinematic stereotypes.

Moland, directing an Americanisation of his hit Scandiwegian thriller In Order of Disappearance, tries to blend suspense-and-violence with Pulp Fiction-style black comedy. He is no good at either: here at least.
February 20, 2019
Viewers will either hop aboard the black comedy or make like Laura Dern (here playing Neeson's wife) and exit early.
February 20, 2019
The ghoulishly cynical tone of this thing was never going to fly, not even as a set of basic popcorn thrills, let alone as some cautionary fable about the pitfalls of murderous rage.
February 15, 2019
At its best, this is an edgily clever take on the sort of movies we associate with the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino.
February 14, 2019
It's far more entertaining and downright crafty than expected.
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.
February 11, 2019
Cold Pursuit falls squarely into that basket, yielding a wholly forgettable movie
February 9, 2019
"Cold Pursuit" is an excellent film.
February 9, 2019
Cold Pursuit works as intended.
