Film review: Cold Comes the Night plays the trump card
A so-so indie crime thriller with one trump card: Bryan Cranston, from Breaking Bad, is in it.
Alice Eve plays the owner of a run-down motel who's taken hostage by a near-blind Polish bagman (Cranston). He needs to recover a stash of mob money from a crooked cop, and Eve is dragooned into helping him.
The upstate New York location looks as cold as death, though it still doesn't justify that feeble title. Eve does OK as the put-upon motelier who's had it up to here.
Cranston is slightly compromised by having to act behind dark glasses and talk in a halting mittel-European accent, but hell, who's complaining? It's still Bryan Cranston.
