Cold Pursuit (2019)

Rated: R - Runtime: 118 min
tesg’s Rating: three stars (out of four)

Now THIS is my kind of revenge movie. It may be my favorite Neeson revenge movie ever. It’s a ton of fun with some ridiculous death scenes. The bad guys and law enforcement are completely oblivious to what’s going on in a way that reminds one of Clint Eastwood in “The Mule”. The dialogue is sparse. Laura Dern’s absolutely perfect letter reflects this. The cinematography is stark and beautiful, but it’s set in the mountains of Colorado in the winter, so why wouldn’t it be.

I probably had as much fun watching this as I did most of “The Lego Movie 2”.
