Cold Pursuit

Cold Pursuit ★½

Cold Pursuit is a very surprisingly bizarre and somewhat contradictory film. It's a movie that clearly wants to be a drama with a lot of comedy but never commits to either genre. There are several depressing and dark sequences during the first act that led me to believe I was in for something emotionally powerful. But as the movie progressed, it became more and more comical, yet it never made me laugh. The movie never defined itself as a comedy or drama, and that led to several uncomfortable sequences where I had no idea how to feel emotionally. And what makes this movie arguably worse is that it isn't even original. I can't recommend this movie despite some positive elements it has, and don't really understand what the filmmakers were going for.

Rating: D+
