Movie Info & Cast
Liam Neeson goes back into action as a small-town man pushed to the breaking point by a drug cartel. Nels Coxman has a good life. He keeps the roads plowed for a small but wealthy resort town in the Rocky Mountains. The mayor even awarded him “Citizen of the Year.” Then his son dies of a heroin overdose–except he's never done a drug in his life. Coxman is convinced his kid was murdered by a drug gang — so he targets the pushers.
This remake of the blackly comic 2014 Norwegian thriller In Order of Disappearance was tailor-made for Neeson. The original film seemed like precisely the sort of film the star would make, so his leading role in Cold Pursuit almost seems like destiny. Action. Dark comedy. A series of wildly escalating events that all ends in killing? Sounds like a great time.

Liam Neeson is a racist! Stop supporting his films! He’s a Horrible person and wants to walk around and randomly shoot and kill Blake people. Those are his exact words!
Do not waste your time!!
The stupidity lacks smarts in the script department, and the joke, such as it is, wears thin, then turns sour.
The action never stops being fun, and it eventually does make excellent use of the heavy machinery Nels' job requires. Cold Pursuit just gets a little winded, like a 66-year-old action hero working hard at high altitudes.
This English-language remake of In Order Of Disappearance by its Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland doesn’t particularly succeed as a thriller, but the film’s gleeful perversity at refusing to satisfying genre conventions gives it a scruffy integrity all the same.
