Suspenseful, stylish, and inventive
19 January 2014 | by melissafdonnerSee all my reviews

Cold Comes the Night kept me tense and engaged all the way through. The characters were refreshingly multi-layered, the cinematography was fantastic, the soundtrack was well-matched (that song at the end was killer!), and Cranston, Eve, and Parker's performances were stellar, which is the result of excellent directing as well as acting.

I don't understand why certain viewers felt like the twists and turns were illogical--while there are a few extreme moments, I thought the characters' actions and reactions were consistent with what we knew about them. The less predictable behavior kept me interested in the two main characters, who had much more depth than the characters that usually star in this genre.

My only complaint is that I did not get to see this film on the big screen. I can't wait to see more of Chun's work!
