Movie: Horsemen (2009)

Synopsis, found on the DVD cover: At home, seasoned police detective Aidan Breslin (Dennis Quaid) has grown increasingly distant from his sons, Alex and Sean, since the death of his wife.

At work, he finds himself thrust into an investigation of perverse serial killings rooted in the Biblical prophecy of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: The White Horsemen, a master of deception and the unexpected leader hell-bent on conquest; The Red Horsemen, a sharp-witted warrior intent in turning man against man, with an innocence that hides a burning rage within; The Black Horsemen, a manipulative and dark tyrant, unbalanced but always one step ahead; and The Pale Horsemen, an executioner with disarming strength, determined to spread death through surgical precision.

The synopsis sounds so convincing, right? I thought it's gonna be a very good movie. In the end, surprisingly, it turns out to be quite a flop. The only reason I force myself to watch it till the end is that I sincerely hope its ending would be good enough to compensate its weak and unconvincing plots and makes us, the audience, not as confused as ever.

In the first half of the movie, it's about people being tortured and murdered. In the end, it's actually all about a bunch of emo teenagers exerting vengeance and the so-called Apocalypse. Duh.

Another thing, I've no idea whatsoever as of why Zhang Zi-Yi is being casted in this movie. I mean, why an Asian girl as part of the story? Why not just a normal Caucasian girl? Her appearance in this movie doesn't make sense at all and she looks so weak and out of place. Errr... if this is how she makes an appearance in Hollywood, I don't think it works well. Just my two cents.

And yeah, I'm still confused with what the movie is trying to tell the audience.
If it's trying to do something like Ron Howard's "Angels and Demons" or "The Da Vinci Code", I'd say "Horsemen" failed and didn't even achieve the minimum standard of a movie based on Biblical prophecies.

In short, don't waste time watching it. Save it for some other better movies with plots that make better sense. :)
