By pumping up the darkly comedic undertones, augmenting the frigid chill of the original, Moland's terrific, riveting picture distinguishes itself from other rote remakes.

Neeson’s knees hold up in an oddball thriller that’s more interested in smirks than smashing things to smithereens.

The thirst for revenge, in movies as in life, almost necessarily involves the dehumanisation of its target. And if the movie itself is best taken as a joke, it's a very bad dad joke.

[Neeson] does them well, but his performances often outstrip his conveyances of late.

Cold Pursuit isn't without its charms. Emmy Rossum's (TV's Shameless) enthusiastic rookie cop is a hoot, there's a touching scene involving a snow plough catalogue as bedtime reading and a killer one-liner uttered by a flustered luxury hotel receptionist.

It's this straight comedic approach that's key to making Cold Pursuit such fun - vicious, barbaric fun.

Offers ample violence but is not another post-Taken piece of grim vigilante wish-fulfillment.

...easily the best thing Liam Neeson has starred in since Taken, maybe even better.

Most revenge thrillers have an element of the absurd inherent in the nameless thugs who get mowed down. Cold Pursuit just has the bravado to lean into the absurdity.
