Riders of Justice (2020)

Anders Thomas Jensen directs Mads Mikkelsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Andrea Heick Gadeberg in this Danish action comedy where a grieving military man teams up with an unlikely group of mathematicians and software designers to hunt those responsible for killing his wife in a random terror attack.

Making sense of violence in a world of infinite cosmic permutations seems to be the over arching theme here but the end result is a bit more like a vigilante The Full Monty. A group of broken men process their issues and grow over some violent justice. The comedy can be very random in tone but overall this strange little package works.
