Liam Neeson has a knack for the action genre and has proven time and time again why he’s someone you never want to trifle with, but now he’s about to switch things up a little bit with Cold Pursuit.
Here’s the full synopsis:
Welcome to Kehoe, it’s -10 degrees and counting at this glitzy ski resort in the Rocky Mountains. The local police aren’t used to much action until the son of unassuming town snowplough driver, Nels Coxman (Liam Neeson), is murdered at the order of Viking (Tom Bateman), a flamboyant drug lord. Fueled by rage and armed with heavy machinery, Nels sets out to dismantle the cartel one man at a time, but his understanding of murder comes mainly from what he read in a crime novel. As the bodies pile up, his actions ignite a turf war between Viking and his long-standing rival White Bull (Tom Jackson), a soulful Native-American mafia boss, that will quickly escalate and turn the small town’s bright white slopes blood-red.

Cold Pursuit is definitely a change of pace for Neeson who swaps out his stoic action man performances and instead embraces the role of an everyman character who is simply pushed to far and snaps with dangerous consequences. While he certainly carves his way through the bad guys he does it with this incredible dry sense of humour that will definitely have you in stitches.
Cold Pursuit is definitely a film on the wild side and I’m always up for a bit of Liam Neeson action so I can say that you’ll definitely want to catch this one when it arrives in cinemas on February 7, 2019.
