About the Movie

Chloe and daughter Sophia live in a rundown motel on a lonely highway pit stop. As the proprietor of the motel, Chloe is in financial trouble and has quietly allowed a prostitution operation to run on the premises under the supervision of Billy, a corrupt cop whose affection for Chloe is unrequited. One night, Topo (Bryan Cranston), a nearly blind career criminal, and his driver stop over at the motel while en route to deliver cash to an unknown boss. An accident causes Topo to lose his driver, and their car is taken to the police impound with the money still inside. Robbed of his money and his surrogate set of eyes, Topo takes Chloe and Sophia hostage, and forces Chloe to be his new driver and guide, using Sophia as collateral. They set out after Billy, who has stolen the money from the impounded car. Attempting to save her daughter and capitalize on the situation, Chloe strikes a deal with Topo to split the cash, hoping to use her share of the money to escape to a better life. But soon she gets in over her head, and a series of double-crosses leaves a cloud of mayhem in this story about desperation and survival.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's hard not to be impatient with a movie as openly lazy as "Cold Comes the Night," which is redeemed only by its performances. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jan 9, 2014

Fresh: Cold Comes the Night is a serviceable low-budget thriller with a pair of strong lead performances and intermittently suspenseful scenes. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jan 9, 2014

Rotten: "Cold Comes the Night" mines the sort of B-movie territory elevated by the likes of "Fargo" and "A Simple Plan," but minus the dark humor and the inexorable sense of dread. – Justin Chang, Variety, Jan 9, 2014

Fresh: A tense little thriller that provides juicy roles for its deft lead actors, Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston, as well as some well-played action and several neat twists. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jan 9, 2014

It's not a bad little movie

Being a huge Breaking Bad fan, I devour anything that Bryan Cranston does. And while his Russian accent was a little strange, his presence was still mesmerizing. Alice Eve steals the show in a performance I didn't know she was capable of doing.

The film is a traditional crime movie but with some strong acting and directing. It's worth your time on a cold night or something.

A great little Indie thriller

I love these things. I eat them up. So much more rewarding than most of the big budget, smash and boom crapola, that studios lose hundreds of millions on.


Seeing is believing, this character portrayed by Bryan Cranston is as close to Heisenberg as you can get. Entertaining movie.
