  • I am just now finding out that Hollywood did a remake of the EPICLY AMAZING “Kraftidioten” (or in English “In order of disappearance”) - “Cold Pursiut”. I am deeply saddened that you guys could not just watch the original - that movie is fantastic and does not deserve to be replaced and un-watched just because y’all can’t read subtitles. Y’all literally spend millions just to avoid reading words.

    Now, Cold pursuit doesn’t look too bad, but… this movie existing means the original masterpiece will be watched less. That’s a shame.

  • A man mourning his son hunts down the people responsible for his murder.

    This was a fairly typical Neeson film since it follows the tradition of many of his previous action films to the point that you can predict most of the narrative from the title and the fact that he’s in it. The location was interesting and there was a little variety added to stop it feeling too desolate or isolate. Also there was some dialogue which was occasionally amusing but I wouldn’t go as far as to call the film a comedy.

    The ending was the worst part because of how disappointing it was. The film builds up to something for nearly 2 full hours and then it’s over in just a matter of a few minutes with a very anticlimactic resolution. Also it didn’t generate much sympathy between the audience and any of the characters because they were all criminals with a few minor exceptions like victims and a child.

    The characters were all mostly quite interesting and several of them got a little background even though they could have been written off as henchmen or generic gangsters. There was also some representation for the Native American characters, although not a particularly favourable one, and even an lgbt+ couple which was a surprise in a film of this genre.

    The moral by the end gets rather vague since it has already condoned murder if the subject or organisation has killed someone’s son, but by the last scene our protagonist is going for a night time ride with someone who was ready to make his victim another young son rather than the actual perpetrators. The women in the film were almost entirely irrelevant, either being there just to add loss, demonstrate spite, or leave the patriarchy to recover or avenge something taken from them. Lastly, we don’t really know what happens to the child in the end but he presumably drove off into the snowy night to eventually freeze to death.

    3/10 -This one’s bad but it’s got some good in it, just there-

    -The premiere for the film was cancelled after Neeson made some controversial comments in an interview about the themes of revenge in the film; he stated that he once spent a week looking for a random black man to kill after a friend was raped by a black man.

    -The film was shot in 2017 but wasn’t released until 2019 for unknown reasons.

    -An informant makes a sexual joke of the main character, Nels Coxman’s, name. In the original Norwegian version that this film is a remake of the character is called Nils Dickman.

    With the threat of an American Parasite remake in “very early talks,” this week I wanted to look at directors (in this case Northern European) who had remade their own movies for American production studios and the breadth of differences between them.

    Hans Petter Moland splits the difference in his stunning in that Kraftidioten and Cold Pursuit are beat for beat almost identical films, yet he manages to pull interesting aspects of social commentary unique to each film through cultural context.  The Serbs are treated like ‘dirty outsiders’ in Norway, and Indigenous peoples are treated with disdain in the United States.  With Cold Pursuit in particular, Moland brings this subtext to the fore—awkward ‘reservation’ wordplay at the bougie hotel, a poignant walk past White People fetishization of Natives while exploiting those peoples in that hotel’s shops, and White Bull’s laughter at his group’s joy in the snow before a primal scream of frustration at justice robbed and land stolen.  Indigenous peoples are given scraps which are taken from them the instant those scraps might yield gold, and that is very much the same here in Cold Pursuit.

  • Cold Pursuit (2019)

    Genre: Crime/Drama

    Who’s In It: Liam Neeson, Laura Dern, Emmy Rossum, William Forsythe, Tom Bateman

    Who Directed It: Hans Petter Moland

    Plot:  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’.

    Running Time: 119 Minutes 

    IMDB Score: 6.2

    Rotten Tomatoes Score: Critics 70%   Audience 51%

    Why I Watched It: Liam Neeson?  It was billed as an action movie.

    How I Watched It: iTunes and in my defense it was on sale for .99 cents.

    Random Thoughts: I have to say I’m a bit tired of Liam Neeson in action movies, he’s drained the well that was Taken and although he’s made some good to alright films I think he’s hitting the bottom at this point and to use the old saying he’s not getting any younger.

    What I Liked: I HATED THIS MOVIE

    Alright let me calm down, I promise no more CAPS for the rest of the review, there’s movies that I don’t like, some I dislike and there’s a few that piss me off so much I end up hating the film and yes I’m writing this in the positive part of the review.  I’ll admit this is a personal thing, I’ve seen much worse but for whatever reason this rubbed me the wrong way.

    I made this set up and I’ll follow it, I liked one thing about this movie and that is the great William Forsythe, he managed to kind of wring out a real character and give a good performance.  Sadly he’s barely in it.  I did like how cold it looked, the snow looked great.

    What I Disliked: Or in this movie’s case what I hated, this is the kind of movie where it’s quirky for quirky sake, they take quirky over a real plot, real characters and anything that makes sense.  Every scene, every character that pops up is quirky and they put up a black title card every time someone is killed and it gets to the point that you realize they introduce characters just so they can put up a card.

    Nothing is thought out, they do nothing to explain anything this whole film is without context.  It hops from one scene to the next without caring about setting things up, they jump from plot point to plot point and it’s in service of quirk.  No character seems real, the set up is Neeson’s son is murdered, now he’s married to Laura Dern, who is wasted in this by the way, and she leaves him at one point, without saying anything and ok maybe that could work but we know nothing about them, we knew nothing about their relationship with their son, no context and without that I don’t care.

    This movie does another thing I don’t like, they throw so many characters and sub plots and nothing pays off, the police sub plot with Emmy Rossum is hard to watch.  Also the film goes pretty low with racial jokes about native Americans and women, it’s also mean spirited and very not funny.

    Now I don’t like picking on actors but I will say if I think they gave a bad performance and I have to spotlight Tom Bateman who plays the head bad guy and he gives what I can only say is a fingernails on a blackboard performance, he’s so over the top and vile that he never seemed like a real person, and he might win the quirk award cause I think they gave him 234 quirks.

    This is also  the type of movie that never lets anything breath if they set something up it happens in the very next scene.

    Final Thoughts: This might have worked if they had some heart and soul, if they let the characters breath and you know actually wrote them as people.  I didn’t mention Neeson, he was alright but in closing it’s not much of an action film, it’s more of a very unfunny and classless black comedy.

    Rating: 1/10

  • Took me a very long time to adjust to the format, but Cold Pursuit is a win in my book. A moderate one, but still, take that W boys. Sure the setting feels underdeveloped, the tone is back and forth like it’s hangin’ off the end ball on Newton’s cradle, and off the top of my head I can think of a minimum of five characters you could cut entirely without affecting the story in any way whatsoever, but I’m still here for it’s weird good thing.

    Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go.

    In the end, Cold Pursuit feels like a rejected Coen brothers movie that paled in the sun for too long; a funnier Taken that sadly only scratches its own surface.
