Storyline

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.

John 'Gip' Gipsky: [riding in squad car] I say make them all legal. Meth, ex, opium. An opium den in every mall, that's my platform. Give the people what they want. Tax the shit out of it, then double our pay.

Crazy Credits

The cast credits are displayed "in order of disappearance", as a reference to the original film of this title. The cast's names are all on the screen at the same time. As each name is highlighted, it turns white as if it is being turned into ash or snow and it blows away and disappears. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 it. Hilarious
10 February 2019 | by kirbycat2See all my reviews

Went to see a popcorn flick. Laughed out loud at the Fargo style humor. I want to drive my car into a chandelier Persian carpet style garage. Loved the credits. Very different. Macabe. It's really dark. Not your typical Liam Neeson flick.
