An action thriller infused with irreverent humor that stars Liam Neeson as Nels Coxman, a family man whose quiet life with his wife is upended following the mysterious death of their son. Nels's search for justice turns into a vengeful hunt for Viking, a drug lord he believes is connected to the death. As one by one Viking's associates 'disappear,' Nels goes from upstanding citizen to ice-cold vigilante, letting nothing, and no one, get in his way.

If you're looking for another action-packed Liam Neeson film like "Taken," etc., you will be disappointed in my opinion. Maybe Liam and Laura Dern owed somebody a favor in Hollywood. Otherwise I can't understand why either star would lower themselves for this mess. It is boring and bloody. The body count keeps rising, each with a tombstone inscription after his grisly death. His character clears roads for a highway in a mythical town outside of Denver, literally driving tunnels in the heavy mountain snow for traffic to pass. It was filmed in Canada and it shows. The Rockies there look nothing like Colorado, and the painted background laughably supposed to be Denver is just plain fake-looking, with lots of skyscrapers but no suburbs--the road just goes from desolate plain to--bang!--downtown "Denver." The story is too stupid to even describe, but it is the cliche of Liam's son being killed under mysterious reasons, Dad's vow of vengeance, and the whole thing involves the illegal drug trade. Laura Dern play's Neeson's wife, who, out of nowhere, leaves him following their son's death, with a blank note for him to see. I guess Dern needed the money, but was most likely glad to get out after one or two scenes at the beginning. It goes downhill from there, and Liam Neeson's own talents are wasted in this confusing mess.

Weird, violent, very dark gallows humour (like Pulp Fiction or Kill Bill), strange movie that I enjoyed a lot. Not enough to want to watch it again, but a good movie while it was on.

Lame "action" movie with an unconvincing Liam Neeson.

I liked the 2014 Norwegian film In Order of Disappearance (Kraftidioten - ★★★★½) that this film is based on. Same revenge premise by a grieving father but a bigger Hollywood budget and production, i.e. with more oomph in actions, stunts, sets (fictional Kehoe in Colorado but in reality Fernie, City in British Columbia, Canada) and casting, also much less colorful language (F & C words.) Mho is that the 2014 film is funnier with those nutty criminals. If you enjoyed the Norwegian movie, you should love this one as well.

For those 90 people waiting for this movie-----YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED------this is not a good movie! And I like Liam Neeson. This is one of his worst. I wish I had listened to myself and turned it off. I wish we could give "minus" stars.

Fairly typical Liam Neeson movie. Very enjoyable escape movie. Lots of action and good acting. If you don't enjoy crime, murder, stunts and fighting in your movies, then avoid it. Otherwise, enjoy it.

Based on the 2016 Norwegian film In Order Of Disappearance, this Americanized knockoff misses the mark. It really annoys me when Hollywood steals from the best. They never get it right. I think it has a lot to do with losing something in the translation but also - they just suck. Also I'm soo sick of Liam Neeson in these tough guy roles. The best films he's ever done were in roles where he played a normal person going through life's regular struggles such as in NELL, KINSEY, SHCINDLER'S LIST and FIVE MINUTES OF HEAVEN. If you agree, go watch these again or else check out IN ORDER OF DISAPPEARANCE the original version of this remake.

Blah. A little bit of comedy. Loose ends. If you are debating about watching this or reading your book, or for that matter doing anything else, do the latter. If you're sick in bed and can't do anything else, then go for it.

This dull movie with Liam Neeson in lead lost me after the first thirty minutes. Unwatchable. What I can only recommend about this movie is: do not waste your time.

It was okay. I feel there was a lot of characters added to improve the plot, but they just mudded the waters and made the movie unnecessarily complicated. Also, every time someone died, it would go to a black screen like an in memoriam page. We, as the audience, just saw the character die. We don't need to be told they died. The ending was weird too. SPOILER, the dad, Liam Neeson, and the head of the Indian crime group are in the snow plow truck just driving, and a member of the Indian crime group gets hit/crushed by the truck when he is gliding/parasailing. This comes out of left field and makes no sense. There are also somethings that never get answered such as Liam Neeson's character's hands appear to shake, and I want to know why. However, that doesn't get answered. The movie could have been better, if they had just changed a few things and let a few other out.

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."
