Cold Pursuit (2019)

We went and saw this last night in the theater. I had briefly read the synopsis and descided on a whim to go see it. Based on what I had read, I expected it to be a drama. Boy was I surprised! (In a good way!)

 

Cold Pursuit stars Liam Neeson playing a snowplow driver on a mission to get revenge for his son’s murder. It follows him as he kills progressively higher-ranked drug dealers of a Denver-based ring, ultimately going after the boss. As you can imagine, things get messy and a little absurd. 

 

Cold Pursuit reminds me of Fargo (both the movie and the TV series) meets Wes Anderson. The pacing was a little slow in the beginning, but by the end things had picked up and I was left wanting more! The ending was somewhat open-ended and in a weird way, optimistic.  

 

I was surprised to see that it’s been tanking at the box office. Cold Pursuit was a super enjoyable, entertaining film. Go see it!
