Movie Info

Travis (Harley Cross) is a nine-year-old boy who lives in Oklahoma with his federally protected parents. After the mob kills his parents for ratting on them, the gangleader demands that Travis be brought to Houston. Cohen (Roy Scheider) is the veteran hitman who signs on for one last job. Much to Cohen's dismay, he is paired with the psychopath Tate (Adam Baldwin). When Cohen does nothing to hide his dislike for his new partner, young Travis begins to play one thug against the other in a psychological mind game in hopes their confrontation will lead to his freedom.

Critic Reviews for Cohen and Tate

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Roy Scheider is perfect casting as the hardened pro Cohen, who tells his partner he's been doing this job for 30 years; you just have to look at that Mount Rushmore profile to know what he's been through.

Given the restrictions of being a first-time director on a limited budget, Red didn't conceive Cohen & Tate to be different than other films of its ilk. He just opted to do it better.

July 11, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Cohen & Tate is, at times, shockingly violent and, at other times, darkly funny. A solid, entertaining little thriller.

July 14, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A tightly wound, consistently intense and refreshingly uncompromising thriller that's the kind of superior B movie Hollywood used to make all the time.
