It’s the way the film’s humor specifically subverts its genre’s expected emotional valences that makes it so effective.

Welcome to Kehoe, it’s -10 degrees and counting at this glitzy ski resort in the Rocky Mountains. The local police aren’t used to much action until the son of unassuming town snowplow driver, Nels Coxman, is murdered. Fueled by rage and armed with heavy machinery, Nels sets out to dismantle suspects 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, a soulful Native-American mafia boss, that will quickly escalate and turn the small town’s bright white slopes blood-red.
Cold Pursuit’s bloody violence, bizarre comic turns, and icy settings make for raucous entertainment. Liam Neeson continues to be an action juggernaut.

Cold Pursuit knows that killing a man with a snow plow is a ridiculous macho fantasy, and it’s going to give it to you anyway-but not without a sense of humor.
