Liam Neeson returns to the big screen as Nels Coxman in the movie Cold Pursuit. Cold Pursuit is based on the Norwegian film In Order Of Disappearance. In Cold Pursuit, Neeson’s Nels Coxman pursues the men he believes played a part in the death of his son, Kyle Coxman (Micheál Richardson).
One by one, the Nels dispatches the men responsible for Kyle’s death. He uses various methods to exact his revenge until he reaches the person who made the call, Trevor ‘Viking’ Calcote (Tom Bateman). This is when everything goes crazy.

Thankfully I found out for you. DC Comics did an amazing job bringing the Justice League to life. Seeing Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa of Baywatch), Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Superman (Henry Cavill) join forces to defeat the coming threat of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) was amazing.
