Cold Pursuit is the Hollywood remake of the Norwegian crime thriller/black comedy, Kraftidioten. Both films are directed by Hans Petter Moland, who doesn't lose a step in the English version. A father hellbent on revenge ends up igniting a war between two very different drug lords. The bloody violence, bizarre comic turns, and icy settings make for raucous entertainment. There are several out of left field scenes in Cold Pursuit that caught me totally off-guard. Liam Neeson continues to be an action juggernaut. His character is quite different here, but beats bad guys to a pulp with deft aplomb. Cold Pursuit has too many characters, but is a rewarding fix for the action junkie. Cold Pursuit takes place in snowy Colorado. Liam Neeson stars as Nels Coxman, the snowplow driver of a fictional ski town called Kehoe. He's the average man to a tee. He works hard, has a loving wife (Laura Dern), and an adult son, Kyle (Michael Richardson); who's every bit the blue collar man like his father. … [Read more...] about Cold Pursuit Review: No One Does Revenge Better Than Liam Neeson
Liam neeson star wars
Actor Liam Neeson attended the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Wednesday evening to watch a performance of The Iceman Cometh, which stars Denzel Washington. Being a famous actor, Neeson was given excellent seats to catch the show, but realized that his 6-foot-4 tall body may have obstructed the view of people sitting behind him. So, he decided to get up and switch seats with a couple who were sitting further back. Neeson went from the front of the house back into the cheap seats so that others could enjoy Denzel Washington on Broadway. The Irish actor isn't known as the most favorite dad in Ireland for no reason. In a recent poll, Liam Neeson took number one as "Favorite Dad," beating out former President Barack Obama, Irish President Michael D Higgins, rugby star Johnny Sexton, and The Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy. On the other side of the spectrum, Donald Trump and Colin McGregor battled it out for worst on the list. Neeson's latest selfless act will probably see him take another … [Read more...] about Liam Neeson Traded His Broadway Seat So He Wouldn’t Block Views

[This story contains spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story] Solo: A Star Wars Story holds an interesting position on the border between familiar, well-known territory and a brave new world, as the first film in the franchise not to feature any members of the Skywalker family. While Solo is easily the installment least interested in exploring the nature of the Force, there are other ways in which the film sticks closely to tried and true Star Wars narrative formulas. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the character of Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Ever since the very beginning, with Leia’s (Carrie Fisher) quest to find Obi-Wan “Only Hope” Kenobi (Alec Guinness), Star Wars has had a serious love of mentor figures. But the pattern is far more specific than that. The Star Wars universe doesn’t just like introducing mentors, but also killing them in the third act of the film in which they are first introduced in a mentorship role. In fitting this … [Read more...] about Woody Harrelson Is Not the Typical ‘Star Wars’ Mentor
