‘Cold Pursuit’ Review – Second Opinion

Stars: Liam Neeson, Laura Dern, Micheál Richardson, Michael Eklund, Bradley Stryker, Wesley MacInnes, Tom Bateman, Domenick Lombardozzi, Nicholas Holmes | Written by Frank Baldwin | Directed by Hans Petter Moland

Liam Neeson stars as a grizzled snow plough driver on a bloody revenge spree in Hans Petter Moland’s English-language remake of his 2014 Norwegian thriller, In Order of Disappearance. As such, Moland sticks closely to the template of his original film (even the running times are identical), but some of the jet-black humour appears to have been lost in translation.

Neeson plays Nels Coxman, a humble snow plough driver in Kehoe, who’s recently been voted Citizen of the Year. When his adult son Kyle is killed by a vicious drug gang, Nels embarks on a violent revenge quest, murdering his way up the Kehoe crime hierarchy until he has druglord Trevor “Viking” Calcote (Tom Bateman) in his sights. Meanwhile, Nels unwittingly

‘Cold Pursuit’ Review: Dir. Hans Petter Moland (2019)

Cold Pursuit review: The hullabaloo around Liam Neeson’s revenge comments in the preamble to Cold Pursuit’s Stateside release has cast an unfortunate shadow on his latest action thriller. Before the film became notorious though, it already faces a bunch of snide jokes at its expense, as Neeson portrays a snow plough driver out for revenge after the death of his son. It seemed as though the Liam Neeson action factory had come to a complete standstill where original ideas were concerned. From one perspective they are right, as this is a remake of Norwegian thriller In Order of Disappearance. But in all actuality, this is quite simply one of Neeson’s best films, and a peculiar delight that will hopefully surprise audiences.

Liam Neeson on Seeking Vengeance in Cold Pursuit

Matthew Schuchman Feb 8, 2019

Liam Neeson and the Cold Pursuit filmmakers talk the dangers of seeking vengeance in Cold Pursuit and how "it can lead you into trouble."

Americanized remakes of foreign films and television series are not a new concept in any stretch of the imagination. Long before Liam Neeson in Cold Pursuit, Christopher Nolan was shooting his version of Insomnia with Al Pacino and Robin Williams. However, what constitutes the designation of “American” in a remake if the new version’s director is the same man who made the original? It has happened before; Dutch filmmaker George Sluizer remade his instant 1988 classic Spoorloos (The Vanishing) for the American market in 1993, and of course Takasji Shimizu brought his vision overseas with a remake of his original Ju-On (The Grudge). Now Hans Petter Moland is bringing the new version of his hit dark comedy thriller Kraftidioten (In Order of Disappearance) to

Call it Taken on Ice, call it Mr. Plow: The Movie, call it “Neeson and Chill.” But whatever you dub Cold Pursuit, starring Liam Neeson as a father out for revenge — don’t confuse it with grim business as usual. After starring in three films in which his character’s “very particular set of set of skills” get put to good use, plus four other films that could fit the same bill (Unknown, Non-Stop, Run All Night and The Commuter), the 66-year-old actor approaches this snowbound thriller with tongue firmly in cheek.

Liam Neeson Attends ‘Cold Pursuit’ Premiere Amid Racism Controversy

Liam Neeson Attends ‘Cold Pursuit’ Premiere Amid Racism Controversy
Liam Neeson stepped out on Tuesday night in New York City to attend the premiere of his Lionsgate thriller “Cold Pursuit.”

However, the red carpet for the screening was canceled just hours before arrivals were to begin in the wake of the Neeson’s racially charged comments he recently made during an interview with the Independent. Neeson revealed that he once was hoping to kill some “black bastard” after a friend was brutally raped over 40 years ago.

Earlier in the day, Neeson appeared on “Good Morning America,” insisting his words were taken out of context. “I’m not a racist,” he told “Gma’s” Robin Roberts.

A source tells Variety that the red carpet for “Cold Pursuit” was nixed because Neeson felt like he said all he needed and wanted to say about the Independent interview.

Liam Neeson In Hot Water After Revealing Racist Revenge Plans

Liam Neeson recently did a catastrophically bad interview with The Independent in which he explained how he concocted a racist revenge plan and walked the streets waiting for a chance to carry it out.

The interview was to promote his latest film, Cold Pursuit, in which Neeson plays a snowplow driver out for revenge against the drug dealers he believes killed his son. Things didn’t start off too bad for the actor, but when the topic of conversation turned to the morality of revenge, Neeson began talking about his reaction to one of his friends being raped, saying:

“She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way,” Neeson says. “But my immediate reaction was… I asked, did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person. I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d

Liam Neeson Says He Once Sought Revenge on a ‘Black Bastard’ After a Family Member’s Rape
In a bizarre new interview with London’s The Independent, Liam Neeson said that as a young man he sought revenge on a “black bastard” by prowling the streets with a bludgeon after learning that a woman close to him had been raped.

“I went up and down areas with a cosh geon], hoping I’d be approached by somebody,” he told the paper during a junket interview to promote his new movie, “Cold Pursuit.” “I’m ashamed to say that, and I did it for maybe a week — hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him.”

The actor, a native of Northern Ireland, said he acted after learning that an unnamed woman he suggested was a member of his family had been raped and that she had identified her attacker as black.

“Cold Pursuit” Puts A Deliciously Dark Comedy Spin On The Liam Neeson Revenge Tale

Just as we were reaching peak exhaustion with Liam Neeson kicking ass, along comes something fresh and new. Once upon a time, Taken showcased the dramatic actor as an action hero. Myriad sequels and knockoffs later, there didn’t seem like there was much more to do with Neeson in the genre. He’d even suggested he was done. Luckily, Cold Pursuit spits in the face of those films. Brutal, dark, and often hilarious, it’s the deranged offshoot that shows how effective the use of Neeson in violent fare can still be. Give him an R rating, black comedy to mix in, and the result is one of the year’s best so far. The movie is a remake of the foreign flick In Order of Disappearance from 2014. Here, the action has been transplanted from Norway to Kehoe, Colorado. Nels Coxman (Neeson) is a quiet family man and dedicated worker.

Cold Pursuit Review

  • HeyUGuys
Director Hans Petter Moland’s Norwegian black comedy, 2014’s In Order of Disappearance, didn’t get a huge amount of attention on release, certainly not in the UK or Us.

As popular as it was with those who did see it, garnering comparisons to the likes of Fargo, it’s likely the quirky humour didn’t carry over to mainstream audiences, even with the McU’s Stellan Skarsgard in the lead role.

In this remake, Skarsgard makes way for Liam Neeson, who plays Nels Coxman, a snowplow driver in a snowy resort town by the Rocky Mountains. His job is pretty simple – to keep the main artery road clear for tourists and townsfolk to get to and from the nearby city.

It’s a job that earns him the local Citizen Of The Year accolade, but his sleepy life, holed up in a log cabin with his wife Grace (Laura Dern
