Product Description

At home, hardened police detective Aidan Breslin (Dennis Quaid) has grown increasingly distant from his two young sons, Alex (Lou Taylor Pucci) and Sean (Liam James), since the death of his wife. At work, he finds himself thrust into an investigation of perverse serial killings rooted in the Biblical prophecy of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: The White Horseman, a master of deception and the unexpected leader hell-bent on conquest; The Red Horseman, a sharp-witted warrior intent on turning man against man, with an innocence that hides a burning rage within; The Black Horseman, a manipulative and dark tyrant, unbalanced but always one step ahead; and The Pale Horseman, an executioner with disarming strength, determined to spread death through surgical precision.

Not my idea of good escapism entertainment.

There was just too much of this movie that didn't make sense, and you're kind of left scratching your head.
P. Beum
Additionally, Ziyi Zhang's character isn't very believable.

Dennis Quaid stars as a widowed detective facing an investigation the likes of which he has never seen: Four murders modeled after the themes of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Ziyi Zhang (Memoirs of a Geisha) also stars.

The first thing that comes to mind when hearing about a crime thriller about a detective investigation religious-themed murders will be the comparison to the modern classic 'Se7en' (David Fincher, 1995). And, yes, it's quite obvious that 'The Horsemen' had quite a bit of inspiration from that film, and the film was styled after its predecessor in more ways than the story. But, I must ask. . . is anyone surprised? Keep in mind that this film was produced by Platinum Dunes, Michael Bay's remake machine that has given us the remakes of such classic horrors as 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' and 'Friday the 13th.' Maybe Bay wanted to remake 'Se7en' a mere fourteen years after its release, but couldn't get the rights. . . so, they went for a film styled after it.

Regardless, the film itself (separated from 'Se7en' and other similar films) isn't terrible. While it CERTAINLY doesn't live up to the 7.5/10 IMDb currently rates it at (a number clearly inflated by crew and studio employees), it still works as an interesting crime thriller. The story is good, Quaid is his usual dependable self, and the direction captures some darkly attractive scenery. Also, the last 20 or so minutes give quite a few thrills and almost had me on the edge of my seat.

The Horsemen (Jonas Åkerlund, 2009)

I saw an ad online for this movie a couple of days ago, as it had just come out on DVD, and I marveled that I'd never heard of this before. How could I have missed a mystery/horror flick starring two very big names (Dennis Quaid and Ziyi Zhang) and directed by a respected guy like Åkerlund? I've never been a big Åkerlund fan, but I know he's gotten a lot of critical respect for Spun, a drug comedy/action flick he made a few years back. And yet this, produced by Michael Bay no less, as far as I can tell went to a few festivals, played for a couple of weeks in five American cities, and then got dumped straight to DVD. What? And the premise was pretty darned cool, a kind of Seven ripoff based on the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse rather than the seven deadly sins. I'm all for Seven ripoffs if they're quality, so I knew I had to go rent a copy and check it out. And now I understand completely why it achieved instant obscurity. The Horsemen is, of the 25-30 I've seen so far, the worst movie of 2009.

Quaid plays Aidan Breslin, a detective with a background in orthodontics who gets assigned to a case after a cache of extracted, bloody teeth is found in the woods. The first body is found soon after, the wife of a prominent businessman (Peter Stormare) who has a number of adopted children. One of those, Kirsten (Zhang), has just turned eighteen and seems attracted to the recently-widowed Breslin. He, however, has his own problems dealing with both the death of his wife and the resentment of his older son (Southland Tales' Lou Taylor Pucci).

Format: DVD
In the commentary the DoP (Broms) and the director admit they "were struggling" with everything in this movie - and man did it show. This struggle included obvious re-shoots (ever wonder what Clifton Collins looks like with a wig?) and plot points being convoluted into confusion, forgotten or just plain eliminated (have to watch the deleted scenes), bad editing, an inability of one of the actors not speaking English well and the list goes on.

The plot has been summed up repeatedly here, but in the end, I was so bummed with how everything happened in the entire film, I actually watched it a second time to listen to the commentary to find out what went wrong. I have listened to many a discussion by the leaders of various films, so without slandering any one person, they summarized this whole thing up with the word they themselves kept using - painful.

This film is being supported heavily by these "youth" that participate in this suspension phenomenon happening all over the world, so expect to see lots of glowing reviews. And should you have some morbid interest in this self mutilation you can hear the director discuss all kinds of details about how to succeed at this. Did not work for me, but the only interest in seeing this waste of film would be to hear some of the songs and watching Quaid have one of his worst outings - ever. The camera work was unique at times, the storytelling was mismanaged (explained by how the crew kept comparing things to how they made music videos) and the performances were below average. Skipper.
