Verdict: A solid revenge thriller backed by a compelling story.

The king of revenge thrillers is back. Cold Pursuit, starring Liam Neeson, is the remake of the Norwegian film In Order of Disappearance (2016), directed by Hans Petter Moland who also helmed the original film. It follows a father on his quest of taking revenge for the death of his child, a character similar to the ones we have seen Neeson play multiple times before. This time around, he is out in the snowy regions of Colorado plotting ingenious ways to murder his enemies one by one.

What’s Cold Pursuit About:

Nels Coxman (Liam Neeson) leads a simple life as a snowplow driver. Things take a turn, however, when his son Kyle (Micheal Richardson) dies of a heroin overdose. The situation does not seem right to Nels and upon further investigation, it is revealed that Kyle was, in fact, murdered by the drug mafia. Nels vows to get his revenge but his actions further expose a rivalry between two drug lords, each with their own backstories. Nels has a long way to go before he realizes the truth behind his son’s murder but he won’t give up until he finds them all and kills them.
