Horsemen

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

Horsemen - 3 out of 5

A creepy movie that never really fails but never really delivers the way it could. The story is interesting and offers some genuinely creepy and disturbing moments but it felt like it wasn't complete at the end of the movie. Like there were loose ends that were ignored. Acting wise, this movie is okay as well as Dennis Quaid will be great in one scene and mediocre in another. The biggest crime this movie has is putting Peter Stormare in the movie and not using him enough. But that's just a minor complaint and I'm a Peter Stormare fan, so I'm bias. Ziyi Zhang is very good in this movie, in fact, she is just downright scary. One thing that really stood out to me was the great camera work this movie had and the tight editing present throughout. From a technical stand point, this movie is a 5. However, the less than stellar story and a few acting problems, caused this movie to lose some points. Overall, this movie isn't terrible and is worth a view because of some creepy elements that are capable of unsettling an individual but this movie won't scare the pants off of you like other thrillers and probably won't warrant a second viewing, but it is worth seeing once.
