Review: Widows

Looking back to when Widows was first released, it’s a real surprise that the awards buzz it first generated didn’t manage to stand up in the long run. A superb film starring an ensemble of some acting greats, Widows is a thrilling heist film directed by Steve McQueen of 12 Years a Slave and Shame fame. An exemplary piece; one that manages to craft […]

Review: Men in Black: International

Dormant franchises are best kept as such, but in the modern world of reboots and remakes it was only a matter of time before the nostalgia glazed army of teenagers would succumb to a remake of the Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith led Men in Black series. But nostalgia wears thin rather quickly, like […]

Review: Taken 3 (5th Anniversary)

It’s always a terrifying sight to behold when a mediocre movie receives a sequel. Taken 2 looks like the Citizen Kane of action movies compared to the third instalment with the now visibly tired Liam Neeson.

Cold Pursuit Review – a third opinion

Liam Neeson has always been able to provide audiences with fairly strong performances, regardless of what style of movie he’s making. His action movie outputs are something I’m not well versed in, but nonetheless was a sub-genre I had convinced myself was worth checking out. But after the limited output provided by Cold Pursuit, I’m […]

Cold Pursuit Review: not a “Taken” movie on ice

Cold Pursuit Review: not a “Taken” movie on ice

Just yesterday, I went to the cinema to watch Liam Neeson’s new feature Cold Pursuit. My reason for going was purely academic research, attempting to study the critics’ reception of the movie following Neeson’s racial comments. For context: set in the snowy hills outside of Denver, Cold Pursuit follows Nels Coxman (Liam Neeson), a snowplow driver in Denver, Colorado, who […]

By Grace Crowley Twenty-two-years after the release of the original Men in Black film, a comedic sci-fi featuring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, the series has been revived with a new cast, new story, and new director. But can the next film in the series compare to the cult classic? Known for its dark […]

Review: Cold Pursuit

Liam Neeson stars in the winter wonderland that is Kehoe, a Ski Resort in the United States of America. His character, Nels Coxman, is the normal, happy-to-help citizen of the town, spending his time clearing roads after heavy snowfalls. The film starts with a brief backstory to the main characters of the film: the Coxman […]

Credit: Instagram I’m guessing the bad guys in Cold Pursuit have never seen Liam Neeson in the Taken Films: if they had, they would know not to kill his son. The film follows Neeson’s character, Nels Coxman, who lives quietly as a snowplow driver in a town in Colorado and has been awarded the ‘Citizen […]
