A Liam Neeson film has recently made its way to Netflix and subscribers are all saying the same thing when it comes to the 'brutal' movie.

There is no doubt that Neeson is one of the greatest tough guys to have ever graced Hollywood, with his resume including a lot of titles.

One thing you can almost certainly expect with every movie featuring the 71-year-old is a bit of action, and one of his films to recently hit Netflix is no exception.

The action thriller Cold Pursuit began streaming on Netflix earlier this month following a 2019 release in cinemas across the globe.

Of course, true Neeson fans watched the film some four years ago, but the recent release on Netflix has given them an excuse to watch it once more.

And the general consensus from a lot of film junkies is that Cold Pursuit is a 'lot darker' than they ever remembered.

Neeson stars in Cold Pursuit alongside alongside Emmy Rossum, Julia Jones and Tom Bateman.

Essentially, the movie tells the story of a man who is desperate for revenge after the tragic death of his son.

The story involves Nels Coxman (Neeson) taking out multiple members of a drug cartel is a true Neeson-style flick.

An official synopsis for Cold Pursuit reads: "Nels Coxman's quiet life as a snowplow driver comes crashing down when his beloved son dies under mysterious circumstances. His search for the truth soon becomes a quest for revenge against a psychotic drug lord named Viking and his sleazy henchmen. Transformed from upstanding citizen to coldblooded vigilante, Coxman unwittingly sets off a chain of events that includes a kidnapping, a series of deadly misunderstandings and a turf war between Viking and a rival boss."

As Cold Pursuit makes a comeback on Netflix, viewers have flocked to social media to share their thoughts on the film.

A second added: "Watching Cold Pursuit. It's the brutal snowplow driver vengeance movie I didn't know I needed. Basically an ultra dark side Mr Plow."

While a third remarked: "No 1 movie is Cold Pursuit with Liam Neeson. We watched it last night. Pretty violent."

Other social media users pointed out similarities to 2009's Taken, which Neeson also starred in.

"Also watched the movie Cold Pursuit with Liam Neeson. All movies seem to be spin offs of the original Taken," one X user remarked.
