Shortly after being deployed, Markus (Mads Mikkelsen) is forced to return home to care for his teenage daughter after a horrific train accident. But when a survivor of the wrecked train surfaces claiming foul play, Markus embarks on a mission to find those responsible and bring them to justice.
“Mads Mikkelsen goes berserk in this gleefully violent, yet gold-hearted deconstruction of the revenge thriller…. Danish filmmaker Anders Thomas Jensen understands that the most difficult tragedies to process are the inexplicable ones, the kind where there’s no one to blame. ” —Beatrice Loayza, New York Times “Deftly blending over-the-top violence and healing crisis management sessions, ultimately ties all the laugh-out-loud audacity and tender sweetness together...the defiantly irreverent gift that keeps on giving.” —Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times “RIDERS OF JUSTICE is salty, violent, transgressive, button-pushing, non-PC and laugh-out-loud funny at times — and when you're not gasping or laughing, it's only to wonder at the mind which pulled all of this together.” —Fionnuala Halligan, ScreenDaily
