Revenge is Best Served Cold.
DIRECTED BY: Hans Petter Moland
WRITTEN BY: Frank Baldwin

SYNOPSIS: A grieving snowplow driver seeks out revenge against the drug dealers who killed his son. Based on the 2014 Norwegian film ‘In Order of Disappearance’. (IMDB)
FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Cold Pursuit is a layered, dark comedy that takes this overdone genre in a different direction. While the story takes a turn tonally that may disengage viewers and some of the storylines feel unfulfilled, the hilarity of the comedic elements, desolate atmosphere and hyper-violent escapism complete with over-exaggerated stereotypical cliches make for a fresh take on the revenge story.
★★★★★★★½☆☆ 7.5/10 – Consider
