A good film, it's as simple as that.

Cold Vengeance is a great way to spend a lonely summer evening. I was surprised to see a Canadian film so well put together. The acting was great, with the exception of the actors portraying Leon and Russ (stinky). I was however, dragged into the story with an explosive beginning and great introductions to the heroes of the film.

Jimmy Coy is an anti-hero. A good guy in a bad situation trying to the do the right thing even though he's from the wrong side of the tracks. You feel for this guy right away. The female lead, Cassandra has problems of her own, and when she and Jimmy fall for one another, you know the fireworks are about to begin.

The story was well paced, and the dialogue seemed very natural. But the best, the biggest thrill for me was seeing figure skater Roselle Soussana in this film. I watch Roselle years ago when she competed in skating competitions in England and in my humble opinion (I skated for years), she's the perfect definition of artistry and grace, the most beautiful skater I have ever seen, and probably ever will see. My only complaint about this film was I wanted to see more from Roselle. Such a talent as hers needs to be seen, I wish her all the success.

Cold Vengeance is good. A nice film with simple values, a great pleasure to watch.
