Critic Reviews for The Horseman

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (12)

  • a hard-hitting, sympathy-confounding thriller that painfully interrogates our own muddled feelings about the sex industry, retribution, and the limits of love, fatherly or otherwise - with an electrifying performance from Marshall.

    December 1, 2010
  • For all the rough edges, and perhaps because of them, The Horseman is compelling voyeurism, and the two leads are near on perfect.

  • Marshall's performance, as the desperate, driven father, is striking; it gives the film an emotional centre without ever diminishing the horror of his character's actions.

    July 7, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • For such a film, The Horseman is too short of flair - there's not enough of it to distract us from the nastiness.

    November 6, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Unless you're a fan of the whole 'torture porn' genre, you'd be hard-pressed to actually enjoy it.

    October 30, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's mean and upsetting, but though the cruelty may undermine the message of vengeance breeding vengeance, it's never presented as slickly enjoyable or a facile solution.

Audience Reviews for The Horseman

  • Jun 07, 2017
    Gritty revenge movie that works on the shoulders of its lead performer. Any film with a hero (I use that term very loosely) that gets his ass kicked every 5 minutes is a welcome change from the stake-free glossy violence of most mainstream cinema. Or at least, it would have been if half of these ass-kickings didn't take place in flashbacks, that by the nature of time, we know he already made it through. Still a very palatable Ozzie flick for those who have the stomach.

    Taking several notes from Get Carter and Death Wish, The Horseman manages to overcome a small budget and a sparse script to deliver one of the more engrossing and gritty revenge films out there currently. Unflinchingly gory and violent, The Horseman has much in common with another similarly themed revenge film, I Saw The Devil, in that despite the carnage, it remains rooted in somber humanity.

    Violent Aussie revenge film about a father on the hunt for the men who were responsible for the death of his daughter after they fuelled her with drink and drugs during a porn shoot. It's gritty and brutal with some scenes of torture but it's shies away from showing anything in graphic detail. The film does get a little slow during the middle parts and it isn't as strong as other revenge films out there. A real good attempt for its budget.

    If angst and frustration could ever be used to keep your eyes and attention riveted to a movie, this is undeniably that choice.A father bent on finding out who was responsible for his daughter's untimely demise. goes on a road trip fueled with gaining revenge for those responsible for that crime.Throw in a teen aged run away girl in to assist him sustain his already thin level of compassion...and you have an adventure too dangerous but remorseful for the father in search of retribution, See this...it is intense!
