Nels Coxman's quiet life as a snowplow driver comes crashing down when his beloved son dies under mysterious circumstances. His search for the truth soon becomes a quest for revenge against a psychotic drug lord named Viking and his sleazy henchmen. Transformed from upstanding citizen to coldblooded vigilante, Coxman unwittingly sets off a chain of events that includes a kidnapping, a series of deadly misunderstandings and a turf war between Viking and a rival boss.

My husband and I didn't know what to watch one night. I'm not a Liam Neeson revenge movie fan. BUT we settled on Cold Pursuit. It was a nice surprise! There is a dark comedy side not found in his other movies. There is a lot wrong with the movie, lol, but the action parts are pretty fun. Lots of unexpected moments. Weird character development...nothing deep. They just want to get you to the next action scene. The way the cast is shown in the credits is hilarious.

If you can watch it for free on a streaming platform and enjoy action/revenge movies with very little angst and a touch of WTF?! then give this one a watch :)
