      David Stratton The Australian Suffused with character-driven comedy, and not avoiding elements of violence, this is an outstanding film. The ensemble cast is flawless and the witty and deliciously complex screenplay is among the best we've seen this year. Rated: 4.5/5 Oct 2, 2021 Full Review Alison Willmore New York Magazine/Vulture Mikkelsen manages to simultaneously lean into and dismantle tough-guy tropes while playing a stoic soldier reeling from the death of his wife in a train crash. Aug 11, 2021 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review Fun in a "what on earth is happening" kind of way. Aug 5, 2021 Full Review Ben Flanagan Vague Visages For a films shot like prestige TV that is dour and tense, he draws a large family of compelling characters. And that makes Riders of Justice worth giving consideration beyond an opening night film — the art of the hangout movie lives, after all... Feb 7, 2024 Full Review Carmen Paddock TAKE ONE Magazine ...the violence inflicted by co-conspirators on each other – be the emotional or literal socks to the jaw – registers somewhere between hilarity and pathos. There is no room for superheroes here – human folly is far more interesting Nov 29, 2023 Full Review Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews Riders of Justice is storytelling at its best, and one of the year’s best films.

      Alec B An action film that takes a fairly standard premise and then runs with it to some really surprising places. By the end you're more moved than thrilled. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Cyns Corner I loved this movie. Can't think of any cons about it at all, so for now I'm giving it a 5-star. This was a great blend of action, comedy, and drama - touching on serious issues such as loss and the difficulty in dealing with it, childhood trauma/abuse, and self acceptance. The comedy helped to counter the dark themes and struck a perfect balance, not becoming goofy or slapsticky. Mads Mikkelsen is growing on me as an actor. Wish this had come out on the big screen in my area. Video review: youtu.be/wo-qngejiKg Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/24/23 Full Review Craig M Profound in the good, Shakespeare way. A lot of action with the philosophy and pathos intertwined. Sensitive treatment by competent actors. You get to think and feel, while your inner grounding is also satisfied. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review jack f so refreshing, not your typical predictable revenge movie but nice heart warming, plenty of humor and great acting! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Ian F What a load of sh*te. I watched this dross thinking its got to get better - relized we were half way through and it was still shi*e. Thank god I didn`t pay to watch this drivel. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/02/23 Full Review Bo H Funny action movie with Mads Mikkelsen searching for justice. A lot of fun and action.
