Emotionally distanced form his two young sons following the untimely death of his devoted wife, a troubled detective investigates a series of murders that seem to be based on the Biblical prophecies concerning the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in a dark psychological thriller starring Dennis Quaid and Zhang Ziyi. Patrick Fugit, Clifton Collins Jr., and Peter Stormare co-star in a film by Spun director Jonas Åckerlund and Doom screenwriter Dave Callaham. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
As much as I love Dennis Quaid (and he was great in this movie), I really did not like this movie at all. Much too gory - not at all what I expected from the description! I would not recommend the movie if you don't have a strong stomach.......
This could have been an interesting premise, but bad directing and /or a misdirecterd screen play keeps that notion a therory. It bugs me that there are enough people out there who would find this sort of nonsense appealing. Gore for the sake of gore being the actual star of this flick, I found it to be ludicrous .. Dennis Quaid must have lost a bet, as he seems to have mailed his performance in. Avoid this.
Not well written. Just very disturbing images. If you have children of your own, the ending will upset you too much. Started off like the movie was going to be very cool, like Seven. Seems like the writers ran out of steam and ideas and had to wrap it up quickly.
This movie was not only interesting but very entertaining. I will admit it kept me on the edge of my seat. A lot of the scenes were unexpected which of course is always a good thing when it comes to a mystery movie.
