On the surface, this is a standard-order revenge movie: He dispatches them one-by-one, seemingly not feeling a lot of guilt for his actions, as he climbs steadily up the food chain. However, Moland doesn't play it "straight. With a nod or two to Quentin Tarantino, he has fashioned a bizarrely entertaining ode to violence, gangsters, and heavy snowfall in the Rockies. Cold Pursuit, which Moland has adapted from his own film, In Order of Disappearance which starred Stellan Skarsgaard in the Neeson role , has some structural problems. There are too many tangential subplots that go nowhere and two characters - police officers John Gipsky John Doman and Kim Dash Emmy Rossum - serve little purpose beyond providing amusing banter and tossing around bits of exposition.
