Nels (Neeson) is a snowplough driver who keeps his small fictional Colorado town moving, but when his teenage son (Richardson) turns up dead, he goes out for revenge. Two hours of Neeson beating, strangling and shooting people, with double handfuls of racism and sexism, make for an aimless, bigoted, dumb waste of time.
Welcome to Kehoe, its -10 degrees and counting at this glitzy ski resort in the Rocky Mountains. The local police arent used to much action until the son of unassuming town snowplough driver, Nels Coxman (Liam Neeson), is murdered at the order of Viking (Tom Bateman), a flamboyant drug lord.Fuelled by rage and armed with heavy machinery, Nels sets out to dismantle the cartel one man at a time, but his understanding of murder comes mainly from what he read in a crime novel. As the bodies pile up, his actions ignite a turf war between Viking and his long-standing rival White Bull (Tom Jackson), a soulful Native-American mafia boss, that will quickly escalate and turn the small towns bright white slopes blood-red.Hans Petter Moland (Department Q: A Conspiracy of Faith) is in the directors seat, remaking his own film previously titled In Order of Disappearance.By pumping up the darkly comedic undertones, augmenting the frigid chill of the original, Molands terrific, riveting picture distinguishes itself from other rote remakes.
