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.

Part of Dennis Quaid's contract was that he was allowed to go back to Los Angeles every weekend. He chose not to exercise that option as he enjoyed himself so much on the shoot, even bringing his wife and his band up to Winnipeg on occasion. See more »
In the scene where Detective R. Rodriguez (Clifton Collins Jr.) is reading "the great day of his wrath has come" from his monitor to Detective A. Breslin (both are seating at their desks), Breslin's monitor is off, yet a few seconds later you can see someone's AIM buddy list on it. See more »
In a cold Washington, the widower Detective Aidan Breslin (Dennis Quaid) is assigned to investigate a case based on his forensic expertise in teeth. Sooner he finds a series of dreadful murders with the victims in suspension rigs based on the Biblical Revelation 6 Come and See and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Famine, Pestilence, Death and War with the involvement of abused teenagers. Meanwhile Aidan never has time to spend with his two sons that are still grieving the loss of their mother.
"Horsemen" has a promising beginning in the style of "Se7en". However, the unpleasant and predictable story is quite pointless and has a disappointing and lame conclusion. Dennis Quaid is too old to have young sons and Ziyi Zhang is too old to perform the role of a young woman; therefore, both are miscast. Further, with so many maladjusted teenagers in the world, the insane idea of this movie might be quite dangerous for disturbed youths. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Os Cavaleiros do Apocalipse" ("The Horsemen of the Apocalypse")
