I was lucky enough to see the Flicks preview of this movie.
This is the best black comedy I've seen in a long time. Liam Neeson doesn't disappoint and the gangsters do a great job of being gangsters.
I laughed so much that I had a sore face for a few hours afterwards. We will be watching this again soon, it was that good.
Don't take it too seriously and have fun.

Liam Neeson returns in his usual entertaining fare but this one lacks substance and the film is largely forgotten as soon as it ends. The main issue is we've seen it all before and while the villain is fun to watch Neeson goes about his "Taken" like business without breaking any new ground and there are several lapses in logic. Saying that, Neeson is always fun to watch and the pace never lags but you can't help feeling that it could have been better

I thought it would just be another Liam Neeson: PUNCHING GUYS kinda movie. How wrong I was. He also kicks, shoots, chokes AND mulches the baddies, all with a beautiful, snowy backdrop. Had a few chuckles along the way as the film ticked along at a decent pace , which led up to the (slightly OTT) climax... It was certainly more than I expected from the poster and the trailer. 4 stars from me!

My wife and I saw this on a Monday night and nicely took the edge of the start of the week.
As most of the other reviews say, this is a good romp; so much so that I now want to see the Norwegian movie upon which it was based (Kraftidioten).
Liam Neeson plays Liam Neeson and is as good as every. Maybe even better.
Of note, Elizabeth Thai does a great job of... More playing 'the wife'. It would be interesting to see a movie about that character. Smart and funny.
If you need a good night out with some drama and some laughs, this could be it.Hide

I loved the movie, it had all the elements of a thriller and when you add the humour and action dramaHil I know they were right in remaking this movie with this cast and Director. They made a great team and a truly enjoyable movie, thank you.
“Brilliant” in my opinion and I am still laughing today. Liam Neeson never lets you down and all I can say is keep them coming.

An enjoyable revenge movie with its tongue firmly in its cheek. The rugged wild and snowy environment is a big feature of this movie. As a dad bent on getting to the killers of his son, an endless progression of murders happen. The edge of the violence is taken off with comedic moments, and a Fargo-esque roll-on of events. It will appeal to those liking action, but with enough comedy to take it out of a straight-forward action movie.

Enjoyed the movie - we both left the theater with sore cheeks from the laughing. Not too excessive in its gore/bloodshed by any means. If you're expecting this to be in the same vein as Taken then you would be disappointed - but thats not what the movie was aiming to be - far more light hearted and sophisticated right to the very end.
