The honorable citizen Nils ploughs snow in the wild winter mountains of Norway, when his son is mistakenly murdered, Nils takes action, which ignites a war between the vegan gangster "the Count" and the Serbian mafia boss Papa.
Hans Petter Moland
Pål Sverre Hagen
Quiet family man and hard-working snowplow driver Nels is the lifeblood of a glitzy resort town in the Rocky Mountains because he is the one who keeps the winter roads clear. He and his wife live in a comfortable cabin away from the tourists. The town has just awarded him "Citizen of the Year." But Nels has to leave his quiet mountain life when his son is murdered by a powerful drug lord. As a man who has nothing to lose he is stoked by a drive for vengeance. This unlikely hero uses his hunting skills and transforms from an ordinary man into a skilled killer as he sets out to dismantle the cartel. Nels' actions ignite a turf war between a manically unpredictable gangster known as Viking and a rival gang boss. Justice is served in one final spectacular confrontation that will leave (almost) no one unscathed.
The New York premiere for the movie was canceled after Neeson made controversial remarks in an interview to promote it. On the movie's theme of revenge and how it can consume somebody, he said that he had once spent a week looking for a random black man to kill, in revenge for the rape of a friend by a black man.

The character names in the credits supposedly vanish in 'order of disappearance', but the order is not correct and there are some which vanish together but they do not disappear together. The actual order of disappearance is; Kyle, Coroner & Det. Osgard, Dante (although he is listed dead later), Speedo, Limbo, Grace, Santa, Waitress, Simon, The Eskimo, Brock, Ahn, Dexter, Sly, Minya, Bone, Aya, Resort Clerk, Chuck, Mustang, Thorpe & Shiv & War Dog & Windex & Smoke (plus 7 more), Ryan, Dash, Gipsky, Viking, Avalanche, White Bull & Nels.

In India, the censors ordered the muting of a profane verbal reference to Indians, addition of an anti-smoking disclaimer in the beginning and middle of the film, and the addition of an anti smoking static caption wherever the smoking scenes appeared. See more »
Loved this film for what it was...pure action with a side of dark humor. Highly recommend for genuine entertainment. (On a side note: For those boycotting film for something Liam said in interviews please remember the old saying.."people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.")
