A great idea that is never fully lived up to
14 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved the idea of Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and I thought the film looked decent with atmospheric lighting and camera angles. However, despite the great premise Horsemen of the Apocalypse never lives up to it.

The acting is unfortunately not very good, Dennis Quaid I do like and I thought he was ideal for the role, but he doesn't have much to work with and sadly with a disconnected performance he lets that fact show. It doesn't help with the characterisation either though, it is woefully underdeveloped quite often.

I wish there wasn't more but there is. The story had a great idea no doubt, however it is in structure disjointed and the sluggish pace and derivative direction further hamper it. What really sinks the film down is the script, which is really inane and cliché-ridden to the point it is barely bearable to listen to.

All in all, there was a good movie somewhere but this was a perfect example of a film that never lived up to the promise it had. 3/10 Bethany Cox
