Cold Pursuit is supposed to be an action thriller featuring Liam Neeson as a revenge seeking snowplow driver. A major drug dealer has killed his son after witnessing a transaction going down at the airport where he worked. After learning of this, Neeson wants some serious revenge.
Then, suddenly for some totally unknown reason, he has developed all of the formidable skills he possessed in the Taken films. He’s become a new breed of hero for 2019. Let’s call him — ‘Super Snowplow Man’.
The only thrilling moment in this movie, was when it finally ended. Long and boring beyond belief, disjointed, stupid, and ridiculous define this ‘exercise in futility’ from beginning to end. One Hundred and Fifty-Seven Minutes of pure Drudgery. Don’t even know how I stayed awake. Dumb and Dumber is a masterpiece compared to ‘Cold Pursuit’.
If it wasn’t for the visually awesome scenery, and the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, I definitely would have fallen asleep in the first half hour.
