Riders of Justice is a Danish film, featuring Mads Mikkelsen as a soldier who comes home from Afghanistan after his ex-wife is killed in a train crash. When Mikkelsen receives information that the crash was not exactly an accident, he sets out for revenge. Though it may not be obvious from the plot description, Riders of Justice is apparently a dark comedy as well as being a thriller.
Riders of Justice proved to be a pretty popular film when it premiered in Denmark and was even nominated for several Danish film awards. (Again, you might not guess this strictly from reading a description of the film’s plot.) On May 21st, it’s finally going to be released here in the United States. I would suggest seeing the original now so that you can compare it to the inevitable English-language remake with Liam Neeson.
Here’s the trailer!
