A decent thriller with strong performances from Eve and Cranston
15 March 2014 | by (San Antonio) – See all my reviews

Cold Comes the Night marks two important transitions for two different actors. The first being Bryan Cranston continuing his ascent to A list stardom after Breaking Bad and Alice Eve who seems to be heading to a more serious minded career turn distant from her eye candy roles. These two admirably elevate what is essentially a mediocre thriller.

Good: Like I said, Cranston and Eve are really good here. Eve goes for more than her looks and delivers as the mother in the middle of this cat and mouse game. Cranston is good as the mysterious Russian hit-man who is about completely blind. They both play off each other well making their interactions very intriguing. The cinematography is very nice and the direction has some solid choices going for isolation and a frigid atmosphere.

Bad: The plot is a basic cat and mouse thriller with money, gangsters, and corrupt cops being involved. Add the financially challenged mother and you have the recipe for a typical thriller. Little in the ways of actual thrills here.

Overall, this is a good time waster on a lazy afternoon and Cranston and Eve's performances make it at least worth a rental.
