MEET NELS COXMAN, CITIZEN OF THE YEAR.
When a snowplow driver (Liam Neeson) working somewhere in the Rocky Mountains finds out that his son is dead, he goes after those who killed him… On paper this may look like another one of Neeson’s ”old-man-with-special-skills” revenge movies, but the remake of the Norwegian thriller-comedy In Order of Disappearance (2014) has a lot of fun with the genre and Neeson’s screen persona. He’s excellent as the gruff working-class avenger. Very close to Hans Petter Moland’s original film; perhaps another director would have brought new ideas.
2019-U.S. 118 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Hans Petter Moland. Cast: Liam Neeson (Nelson ”Nels” Coxman), Laura Dern (Grace Coxman), Emmy Rossum (Kimberly Dash), Tom Bateman, William Forsythe, Julia Jones.
