User Review

Doesn't hold a candle to the movies it copied

Rating: 3/10


The Horsemen touts itself as another serial killer cat and mouse and
admirably attempts to mix in several sub-genres including torture,
exotic piercing, plot twists, and even a silence of the lambs (more
Primal Fear in execution) style prison exchange. What transpires is
unfortunately a lot of set pieces that don't add a lot to the whole.
Dennis Quaid has always been fun to watch and has had several
noteworthy performances (my fav will always be Savior). Here he
struggles to play a hardened detective reminiscent of Al Pacino in
Insomnia, his lines are forced, he is simply a poor casting choice for
this role. He never reaches believability as the detective, and the
dramatic subterfuge of a single dad with 2 kids is laid on so thick, he
never sloshes out of the muck long enough to fill either role. The plot
is OK, fairly standard shake on a playful serial killer vs cop movie,
but the dialog is simply horrible. The lines are terribly cliché' and
the actors, while capable, are just waiting for there time to speak,
never fully absorbed into the movie. This will likely go to video soon
where it may attract an easy to please crowd but ultimately does not
hold a candle to any of the movies it copied.
