Critic Reviews for Riders of Justice

All Critics (127) | Top Critics (28)

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.

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.

Fun in a "what on earth is happening" kind of way.

August 4, 2021 | Full Review…

What separates the ensuing mayhem from a thousand generic thrillers out there is an impish streak and writing that smartly juggles big ideas, mad gun battles and guilty laughs.

[A] very violent, very funny and oddly life-affirming film.

July 24, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is, thankfully, less macho than that sounds.
