Trivia

If you don't count The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) as it is a prequel to the remake, this is the first Platinum Dunes release that is not a remake of an existing horror property. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, when the Detective visits the second dead body of the girl, you can see the detective going to talk to the daughters, but in the next shot when their father comes in, the detective is standing next to the policeman again, and then returns to his original position in the next frame.

Unpleasant and Predictable
13 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

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")
