Consensus: Despite strong performances from Bryan Cranston and Alice Eve, Cold Comes the Night is undone by a series of illogical plot twists.

"Cold Comes the Night" provides Eve with an opportunity to showcase yet another side of her talent.

Cold Comes the Night is a serviceable low-budget thriller with a pair of strong lead performances and intermittently suspenseful scenes.

Cranston has plenty of menace left over following the end of Breaking Bad, and his fans will forgive the distracting Polish accent he keeps up through the film.

New York Post

A bland and preposterous thriller in which Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston play unlikely partners in crime.

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.

The plot and characters all appear to be consequences of a group of writers that just didn't have a single iota of originality among the three of them, and as a result, it's simply not worth your time.

Los Angeles Times

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.

Certainly not as bad as I was expecting it to be given the reviews, but not nearly as good as its two leads are. These are A-list actors in a B-list film.… More
