Riding in on the four ponies currently plaguing the Hollywood horror-thriller -- overstylized torture, whiplash editing, compulsive script reversals and crude neon lighting -- Horsemen brings its herd home to pasture in strictly predictable fashion.

The scenes of Quaid interrogating Zhang boast the hottest 'Outlet Mall Silence of the Lambs Acting' we're likely to see this year.

...a watchable yet entirely underwhelming piece of work...

A grim picture, but utterly ridiculous; a film encouraged by its own sense of misery, though in service of a director who botches the delicate balance between procedural nightmares and familial concern.

Not a movie I'll watch again, but to me it was (in varying degrees, no particular order) comparable to Primal Fear, Mr. Brooks, Stigmata, The Exorcist III, or Copycat.

Audience Reviews for The Horsemen

It's not that Horsemen is a bad movie. The premise is actually pretty intriguing. But it's executed in such a bland and generic fashion that it's really hard to care about anything that's happening. Not to mention the faux Silence of the Lambs jail scenes with Dennis Quaid and Zhang Ziyi would benefit from subtitles whenever the latter speaks.

Decent enough thriller, but not really going to break any boundaries. Is a little reminiscent of seven.

Come and See.

Great Thriller! This movie lived up to my expectations in all the important ways. My curiosity was jump started in the first scene, and the somber, introspective mood of the story line, spiked with horrific scenarios and sickening plot twists, was exactly what I hoped. The final twist was too easily guessed, of course, but it didn't take away from the finale, a powerfully emotional scene portrayed very convincingly by Dennis Quaid, who brought his usual energy and charisma to the role. If you're looking for a quality suspense thriller, this one is well worth your while!

Aidan Breslin is a bitter detective emotionally distanced from his two young sons following the untimely death of his devoted wife. While investigating a series of murders of rare violence, he discovers a terrifying link between a chain of murders and the Biblical prophecies concerning the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death.

I was shocked at how good this film actually was. There are cringe worthy parts, of course, where you wonder what they were thinking when they came up with some of the plot, but for the most part this film was very, very good. At first it looks like a horror movie, plain and out for cheap thrills, but as the minutes peel away and more of the inner workings of the characters is revealed it brings up a lot of important issues that many parents have with the internet and the things it allows their children to concoct. Ultimaley it is heartbreaking and will leave you in shock (atleast it did with me) but is a good all rounder, providing adequate gasping and gross out points, with a beautifully constructed subplot for those who seek more of an intellectual undertone to their late night flicks.
