This was a pleasant surprise. 15 minutes in and I was like "an action film with a Taken vibe". Then suddenly i sensed this comedic layer of the film that was awkward and a bit bland. But humor was consistent, enough for its direction to be really really interesting. Also, the use of title cards as plot device was really awesome. A character dies in like every 10 minutes and this kind of rhythm was sustained until ***SPOILER ALERT*** the cross fire in the end. A classic revenge-mistaken identity-lead-to-series-of-killings type of movie but with a smooth and subtle comedic punchlines in every scene.

This is a film that revels in its absurdity but doesn't shy away from violence. I mean, the main character is named Coxman, and yes, that name is the butt of jokes as the movie goes on.

Neeson is a humble snow plow driver, Nels Coxman, for a Denver resort city who has just been named "Citizen of the Year" for essentially keeping the roads clear and helping people in various ways. He's more the quiet type, so his speech is short but his wife Grace (Laura Dern in too small of a part) just wants him to be happy. That happiness is short-lived, however, when their son Kyle (Miche├íl …
