One of the best action films of the decade is among the movies on TV tonight

This action comedy stars one of the best actors in the world and has a whopping 96% Rotten Tomatoes score.
Our pick for tonight is this 2020 Danish action comedy which sees Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, Hannibal) play Markus, a soldier in Afghanistan who returns home after his wife dies in a train crash.

While struggling to look after his daughter (Andrea Heick Gadeberg), Markus is a approached by a man named Otto (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) who was on the same train as his wife. A statistics and probability expert, Otto determines that the crash was not an accident.

This leads Markus, Otto and two of Otto’s fellow outcast friends (Lars Brygmann and Nicolas Bro) to seek out the people that they believe responsible for the crash.

On one level, Riders of Justice is a classic vengeance movie that is led by a tough-as-nails performance by Mikkelsen and punctuated by hard-hitting action scene.

At the same time, however, it’s also a deeply emotional and surprisingly funny portrait of a group of lovable if damaged people coming together to help each other with their trauma – with the film eventually going on to, with its unpredictable plot, subvert the conventions of revenge movies.

Boasting a 96% Rotten Tomatoes score, Riders of Justice is also available to rent on Apple TV, Google Play, Rakuten TV and the Sky Store. Check out its trailer below:
