"Revenge is Best Served Cold"


Synopsis:

“Featuring a wildly entertaining mix of dynamic action and dark humor, Cold Pursuit stars Liam Neeson as Nels Coxman, a snowplow driver whose quiet family life is upended after his son’s murder.” – Lionsgate Home Entertainment


My Take:

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.

I have to admit that my reaction to seeing the trailer for Cold Pursuit was to roll my eyes and wonder aloud, really? Another Liam Neeson revenge thriller? I went into viewing the film with admittedly low expectations. Cold Pursuit is based on the Norwegian movie “Kraftidioten” (In Order of Disappearance) by Kim Fupz Aakeson. I haven’t seen the original but, this film not particularly suspenseful or thoroughly engaging, especially for seasoned genre fans. The setup is brief and lays down the foundation upon which the plot is built.

The plot isn’t very well conceived and is then followed by several inane plot points that impact credibility, within the context of the storyline. Truth be told it has moments that are overtly silly, while a cache of cardboard cutouts for characters and implausible events, designed to create the illusion of an antihero, serve to bog down an already overlong screenplay.

What I enjoyed about Cold Pursuit was watching Liam Neeson. I liked his character, a flawed, burned out shell of a man, left with lots of regrets. I like Laura Dern, John Doman and Emmy Rossum, but their characters didn’t carry any weight, although with a better script, they should have. The “action” is a mix of gunplay and brief physical confrontations which had little to no impact. The cinematography and production design are fair. [i]Cold Pursuit[i/] doesn’t reach the bar set by the better films in its class, but gives star Liam Neeson yet another opportunity to prove he still has the chops to keep us coming back to see him. I hope his next project comes along with a better script.

Cold Pursuit comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray from Lionsgate Home Entertainment featuring 2160pHEVC encoded video and lossless Dolby Atmos/True HD 7.1 sound.

For its presentation in Ultra HD Cold Pursuit was derived from a 3.4K source and finished on a 4K Digital Intermediate.

I began with my review of the Blu-ray version of Cold Pursuit before moving onto the Ultra HD version. First and foremost, this isn’t a bright or colorful film, predominantly adhering to relatively cooler, teal splashed, chromatic schemes, which doesn't make for especially eye-catching levels of color. This is intentional, in trying to keep with the stylistic aesthetic of the director’s vision. Fleshtones looked about the same, which is to say, a bit pallid, but not overtly unnatural.

Shot digitally, resolution is generally strong, although I wouldn’t say there was a noteworthy uptick in sharpness and detail compared to the Blu-ray. Upon closer inspection, I could make out finer details in facial features, clothing, and the various interiors of the dwellings featured in the story. On occasion, discernible improvements in depth could be seen in wide angle shots, but in most respects, I saw only incremental differences in apparent resolution when comparing select scenes from the UHD and Blu-ray.

I also found the presentation to be very tame in terms of its use of dynamic highlights, both bright and dark. I found only a few occasions where the presentation made visually compelling use of interstitial black levels offset by vivid bright elements.

Predominantly speaking, the presentation’s HDR emboldened streaming/natural lighting schemes, which looked fine, but not appreciably vibrant, which again, fell within the film’s thematic subject matter. There was some murkiness to shadows, but in general the low-level images appeared quite dimensional. I am sure that my quibbles with the video quality is owed to the original source and stylistic choice. The result is a solid UHD presentation that failed to leave an indelible impression on me.


Dolby Vision vs HDR-10:

I utilize the TCL 55P607 UHD Dolby Vision HDR flat panel in my review system to enable me to compare the visual quality of titles that contained the Dolby Vision metadata versus its HDR-10 counterpart on the same disc. All titles are first watched via my JVC front projector. I then select specific scenes which are watched on the TCL, first via HDR-10 then via Dolby Vision. The TCL isn’t among the top tier flat panels with DV, however it came recommended by AVS Senior Editor Mark Henninger, and calibrates/performs extremely well for a set at its price point.

* The cumulative A/V score will still be based upon the HDR-10 rating, with the DV rating serving as informational only for now.*

Comparing the DV and HDR-10 presentations for Cold Pursuit I similarly found the HDR renderings to be very close. As I alluded to earlier, this film’s elements aren’t consistently lent to use of overtly bright color, but I did take a close look at the rendering of contrast, chromatic depth and delineation during scenes containing dark and bright highlights. When I switched back and forth between the DV and HDR-10 renderings, I felt that the DV presentation revealed better definition in the darkest portions of the image. These differences aren’t especially noteworthy, but in the grand scheme, made for a more pleasing image.




Dolby Atmos:

In listening to the Dolby Atmos surround mix I found it to be of the less aggressive variety but, considering the source material I suppose that’s not a complete surprise. Its use of audio objects placed above is a mix of atmospherics, discrete effects and occasional panning fills. This is done well when implemented. The music score is subtly mixed over the platform so as to add natural depth to its orchestrated elements without drawing attention away from the thematic details of what is transpiring onscreen. While this mix doesn’t make constant use of room traversing audio objects its application predominantly serves the film’s thematic subject well enough to get the job done. Those looking for an active immersive listening experience will be disappointed.



For those not familiar with the details regarding Ultra HD Blu-ray you can refer to my article that includes some pertinent data on the subject. Here is the link:

Ultra HD Blu-ray Has Come to AVS Forum Blu-ray Reviews

  • DSU/DTS Neural:X Rating * (non-rated element): NA


Cold Pursuit comes to Blu-ray Disc from Lionsgate Home Entertainment featuring 1080p AVC encoded video and lossless Dolby Atmos/TrueHD 7.1 channel sound.

This is an excellent high definition rendering that sports plenty of fine detail and crisp definition that provides discerning dimensional perspective. Colors range from warm and vivid to cool, reserved and almost tonally neutral. This is obviously a creative decision that draws definitive visual boundaries and works quite well. Contrast is strong and blacks are deep without compromise to delineation. Shadowy areas exhibit excellent depth of field and visible gradational stages. The various wide-angle shots of the snow- covered landscapes look great. Framed at 2.39:1, images onscreen have excellent depth. I didn’t see any signs of video degrading artifacts or extraneous compression related noise. Cold Pursuit looks great on Blu-ray.

The Dolby TrueHD 7.1 (Atmos core) sound has excellent dynamic range and detail. Dialog is articulately reproduced through the center channel and maintains a position of prominence within the front soundstage. This isn’t an aggressive surround mix but when applied the surround channels generate plenty of atmosphere and discrete sounds. Front and rear channel imaging is spot on as details and spatial cues, such as those used for near field effect, mate perfectly with the events transpiring onscreen. Low frequency effects are meaty and provide palpable richness to the music score and impactful sounds. I found this to be a complimentary audio presentation.



Bonus Features:
  • Disc 1: Cold Pursuit Ultra HD Blu-ray
  • Disc 2: Cold Pursuit Blu-ray
    • Deleted Scenes
    • Interview with Actor Liam Neeson
    • Interview with Director Hans Petter Moland
    • “Welcome to Kehoe: Behind the Scenes on Cold Pursuit” Featurette
  • Digital Copy



Final Thoughts:

Based on the Norwegian Movie “Kraftidioten” (In Order of Disappearance) by Kim Fupz Aakeson, Cold Pursuit is a middling genre entry that is sure to leave discerning fans disappointed. It comes to Blu-ray in this Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, featuring a solid Ultra HD video rendering (including Dolby Vision HDR), excellent high definition video, involving lossless surround sound, including a complimentary Dolby Atmos immersive sound mix, and a lackluster supplemental package. Unless you’re already a fan, Cold Pursuit doesn’t warrant a purchase but, could qualify as a rental on Blu-ray when there is little else available.

I watched this last night. It wasn't bad. Typical Liam Neeson revenge movie but with an added touch of comedy. If it didn't have that touch of comedy. it would have been boring. As far as PQ, the DV version is quite a bit better than the BD version. Deeper color and greater detail with the DV version. The BD version looked flat after watching the DV version.

Thanks Ralph @Ralph Potts for another very detail review, much appreciated from me and many others.
Also got this one on day one, since I like "Liam Neeson". And was hoping to see a review from you.

While I was hoping the SQ and PQ ratings would have been higher. They still fall into "EXCELLENT = 83-91" range.
Looking forward to be my next movie to watch this week-end.
And a mix of action and comedy, will be a refreshing change from my normal action movies.

Thanks for the review Ralph. I'll have a look at this when it comes to EPIX, then probably buy a copy when the price drops. (I know me ).

They are few and far between, Ill grant you that. But it is in fact tons better and its got Stellan Skarsgård, who does the part way better than Neeson.

Right, this was supposed to be a "dark comedy", kind of like a "Tarantinoesque" type considering it's subject matter though not very well executed, but regardless if one looks at it through those lenses, it acquits itself in a better light sort of speak.

Haha just referring to our 'greatest' movies of all time like Hawaii Oslo and Max Manus... I thought both of them were ridiculously bad.

But Stellan Skarsgård you say? hmm...

Thanks for the review Ralph. I was not surprised at your review because even the preview did not make me want to go and see the movie! I'll take your advice and put it on my rental queue.

Saw the movie tonight. I am a Liam Neeson fan, but was going in with my bar set a bit lower than normal due to feedback on the film. I must say, I actually enjoyed it. A fair amount of dark comedic moments, as well as some rather interesting takes on stereotypical portrayals. Had just a touch of a Tarantino type flare to keep me in the film. One thing I noticed is this film does not have the fast pace and intensity of many of his past “revenge” films. That aside, the slower pace with the mood this film creates worked for me. Not one of Liam’s top films, but certainly worth a watch.

I rented this from Netflix. I was surprised that the rental had Dolby Atmos considering it is a Lionsgate. I enjoyed this movie. I was excited that this was an ATMOS but was slightly disappointed I was expecting more bass and overheads.
