Pretty much a duplicate of the Norwegian film, "In Order of Disappearance." Perfect film for Liam Neeson. Violent, some surprises, and comical.

As a remake of the 2014 Norwegian film "In Order of Disappearance", this thriller repeats the same gratuitous killings with Bang, Bang ,Bang without a new perspective and meaning.

This 2019 DVD Movie. "RATED R by MPAA" for strong violence, drug material, and some language including
sexual references.
It turned out to be an AWESOME movie, about 2 Drug Dealers[underground crime] and a TURF WAR (in between them over stolen 10-kilos of cocaine). [ITALIAN DRUG DEALERS against NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN GANGSTERS].
THIS DVD movie (produced by LIONSGATE) and filmed in Alberta, Canada - British Columbia; is a
slow-progressing-movie for the first 30minutes.
The main character (son) steals a kilo of cocaine at the airport, and then dies of an heroin overdose - from the
crime lord.
///
One by One, the father (starring LIAM NEESON as Nels Coxman); starts killing lower level drug associates until he finally meets the MAIN DRUG LORD "VIKING" >That is why this movie is called "COLD PURSUIT"<
As this 1hr 58min 54sec MOVIE progresses, it turns out to be an ACTUAL ACTION and COMEDY; and as the
"ENDING CREDITS" appear - - -
Instead of seeing order of appearance, this movie ENDS with "Order of Disappearance", as each person dies.
For older viewers: they have wonderful songs (listing) in this movie:
1) 2000 miles - The Pretenders
2) Stand by your Man - Tammy Wynette
3) Barbie Girl - Aqua
///
This movie "COLD PURSUIT" had an Audience Rating on IMDb of 6.2 out of 10;
BUT ALTHOUGH AS I WATCHED IT ON MY COMPUTER (3-MONTHS later) beyond the last comment - I thought
(IN MY OPINION) it was much better.
///
I agree with the OVERALL LIBRARY RATING of 3 1/2 Stars for this 2019 DVD Movie.
Fun to watch, but had to wait until later in this DVD movie to find out what happened.

Typical Liam Neeson revenge movie with a bit of dark comedy thrown in. This time it's drug dealers who killed his son. The director helped out the ratings board by keeping a running roster of the body count, giving us name, nickname, and religion of each dead guy. There was a surprising, but ultimately pointless gay relationship between two of the main villain's henchmen. Laura Dern is in this movie, playing Neeson's wife, but they could have just as easily made him divorced or a widower and it wouldn't have mattered. She left him about a third of the way through the film for some unknown reason. She literally left him a note with nothing written on it, like that was supposed to have some sort of deep meaning. She was not missed. Honestly, Liam Neeson must be getting tired of doing Taken over and over again.

I really like Liam Neeson, but this film that attempts to add comedy to great violence was not a winner with me. If you want to see great films that do the comedy / crime genre' credit watch "Fargo" and "No Country for Old Men". Can't recommend this movie. Kristi & Abby Tabby

A very macabre comedy. Actually very funny, taking it for what it is. Lots of good action from Neeson, with a different take on it.

I was expecting a typical Liam Neeson action movie. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this being a dark comedy. My husband and I both laughed several times.

Revenge story of an old, normal guy killing cartel members that killed his son. The consensus that this movie is bad, I tend to agree. Good thing you can save money and watch it free from the library, right?

A dark comedy. Hm. Didn't laugh anywhere, I guess I don't get dark comedy. Too much elimination and just ug.

OMG that is 2 hours of my time that I will never get back. Very poorly written an acted with a stupid story line that is not believable. Liam come on, is this what your career has come to? Also Laura Dern's character could have been eliminated as it was of no value whatsoever in this disappointing movie. I wish I had read the poor reviews first before I wasted my time watching this drivel.

Aya: Every other parent was there.

Trevor 'Viking' Calcote: You're right, I forgot about the bullying seminar. But I'm allowed to forget, you know why? Because I wrote a check for a new computer center. You write a check, you get to skip on 150 bullying seminars. That's the math. That's one of the perks of my business.

Aya: You're not a businessman, Trevor. You're a criminal.

Quote:
In Order of Disappearance (English subtitles):
"I rolled them into chicken wire and threw them in the waterfalls. Then the little fish can get in and gnaw the flesh from the bones… so they do not swell. Then they just are there."

Cold Pursuit:
"Wrapped them in chicken wire, threw them on the gorge.
- Chicken wire?
Yeah, to let the fish get at them. They'll eat the flesh off the bones. So the bodies don't fill with gas and rise. They stay at the bottom."
