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.

By Navy Sailor VINE VOICE on May 13, 2009
Format: DVD
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).

I had never heard of this movie when my wife bought it for movie night. What a senseless downer of a film. I actually generally like Dennis Quaid quite a bit, but nothing and no one could have saved this twisted story.

Don't waste your movie time on this one unless you just like to see what kind of wierd torture a director could come up with... and for the message that parents who don't spend enough time with their kids (because they work or are having emotional issues of their own) will turn them into serial killers.

Huh?

I have a definite fondness for psychological thrillers; they have the terrific potential to engage its audience, to serve up suspense and send the audience into one mind-boggling ride. In the tradition of "Seven" and "Resurrection", "HORSEMEN" is another suspense thriller that captures themes of religious and Biblical significance that mixes in some mild elements from "Saw" and "Antibodies". Directed by Jonas Akerlund and co-produced by Michael Bay, the film is a composition of a very grim narrative that gets its strength from probable misery.

Aidan Breslin (Dennis Quaid) is a cop reeling from the death of his wife some years ago; trying to keep everything together with his two sons, Sean and Alex (Liam James and Lou Taylor Pucci respectively). Life isn't already easy for a single dad who happens to be assigned to a new serial killer case that targets the city with the promise of Biblical apocalypse. When a demented killer gives herself up, (played by Ziyi Zhang) a young woman named Kristin who is supposedly a victim of sexual abuse. She apparently holds the codes to further acts of murder that somehow involves the fetish action of suspension. Aidan relentlessly works to make sense of the clues, as Kristin is not the only psychopath on the loose, but three others who have the ambition to name themselves after the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.

The film has tremendous potential and the direction definitely knows that it does have an ambitious theme. Akerlund does manage to engage me in the film's first 40 minutes as it generates an eerie atmosphere, some freaky images and a feeling of dread that captures a strong sensation of despair that something bad is going to happen and that it is only going to get worse.
