Storyline Heading
Nels Coxman, a family man whose quiet life with his wife is upended following the mysterious death of their son. Nels' search for justice turns into a vengeful hunt for Viking, a drug lord he believes is connected to the death. As one by one of Viking's associates "disappear," Nels goes from upstanding citizen to ice cold vigilante, letting nothing - and no one - get in his way.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Thriller - Despite what the marketing suggests, this is not another typical Liam Neeson action film but a far more quirky dark comedy with minimal action. Neeson is the clear lead while Emmy Rossum has a prominent supporting role; Laura Dern's appearance is brief. Language, violence, and drug use make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ...it's a fragmented, meandering tale in which Neeson's character, a Kehoe, Colorado snowplow driver named Nels Coxman, gets a taste of vengeance and becomes a glutton. At its best, it plays like a wry critique of this unexpectedly lucrative period of Neeson's career, and a borderline-spoof of the genre as a whole.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average ...the 66-year-old actor approaches this snowbound thriller with tongue firmly in cheek. Cold Pursuit doesn't give its star much of an opportunity to act... The fans show up for this kind of movie to watch Neeson knock heads with bad guys, and Moland lets him rip.

Rex Reed Full Review
Above Average Cold Pursuit will not go down in history as one of Liam Neeson's most memorable efforts, but it's fun while it lasts, and he seems to have more fun than anyone else. so many die, for so many different reasons and in so many different ways that you might find yourself laughing aloud at the overwhelming silliness of it all.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good It's the way the film's humor specifically subverts its genre's expected emotional valences that makes it so effective. The bodies pile up as the film willfully strays from its expected center, focusing on violent hijinks, one-off jokes, and conversations that turn out to be the setup not for weighty plot twists, but for brief, belated punchlines.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 55 moviegoers:
TEENS: Of the three females, two loved it and one felt it was just a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone male loved it. One female loved it and one enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS: Very mixed reviews to say the least. It's rare to see reviews that span from "Fantastic" to "Terrible." About 30% of the males and 20% of the females loved "Cold Pursuit." That's fairly low. Another 20% of males and 15% of females indicated that they enjoyed this movie very much, so about half the males and one-third of the females truly enjoyed this movie. A large 30% of males and 40% of females felt it was only "good/average," (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Unfortunately, 20% of males and nearly 30% of females didn't enjoy it much at all, which is very rare for any movie.
