Riders of Justice

1h 56m Action, Comedy 2020

AroView: Mads Mikkelsen leads this supremely entertaining Danish revenge thriller that cleverly delivers genre spills, big laughs and complex emotions.

In this fifth collaboration with writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen (The Green Butchers, Adam’s Apples), Mikkelsen plays a deployed military man who returns to his teenage daughter after his wife dies in a tragic train accident. But what seems to be bad luck reveals itself to be collateral damage of a carefully orchestrated assassination… Far from being a one-man show though, Mads’ unsmiling tough guy is counter-pointed by a rag-tag team who are as idiosyncratic as they are inspired.

“Riders Of Justice is salty, violent, transgressive, button-pushing, non-PC and laugh-out-loud funny at times – and when you’re not gasping or laughing, it’s only to wonder at the mind which pulled all of this together.” ~ Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily

“An expertly handled plot, interweaving lives, coincidence, past trauma and circumstance, is concerned with far more than mere bloody vengeance.” ~ Matthew Anderson, CineVue
