(S) = Subtitled.

Mads gets even in a violent Danish action-thriller full of pitch-black laughs.

The Mads Mikkelsen renaissance continues apace with the Danish star of Another Round, soon to be seen in Fantastic Beasts and the latest Indiana Jones, producing a fearsomely credible turn here as an Afghanistan veteran bringing the fury of war back to Denmark.

He is Markus, a taciturn yet battle-hardened warrior who returns home when his wife and daughter are caught up in a criminally engineered train crash (a brilliantly executed sequence). When all fingers point to a gang of neo-Nazi bikers, the “Riders of Justice”, Markus decides to uncork his inner Schwarzenegger.

An exploration of male rage, and the psychological scars that impede us all, Riders of Justice manages to be simultaneously moving and hilarious. Taking a leaf from the Coens' playbook, it's by turns ultra-violent then dryly funny and surprisingly wise.

Come for Mikkelsen, stay for his winning band of lovable losers.
