"Highwaymen" review

Highwaymen (2003)

Directed by Robert Harmon
Writing credits Craig Mitchell Hans Bauer

James Caviezel.... James 'Rennie' Cray (as Jim Caviezel)
Rhona Mitra.... Molly
Frankie Faison.... Will Macklin
Colm Feore.... Fargo

"Highwaymen" is about a psycho who likes to run women over with his car. The end. It's a little bit "Crash" and a little bit "Joy Ride". It's a solid B-movie. It's always refreshing to run into a decent B-flick now and then. Aahhhh. I'm refreshed.

So psycho decides to run down the wife of a guy who's as obsessive/compulsive as he is. Soon they will spend their carefree days and nights hunting each other down on the highway. They're Highwaymen. Another girl comes in between their chase. She is the bait for the final car grudge match. Vroom...Vroom! - Screeeeeech! - Splat.

I enjoyed this one. Killer cars, highways, Highwaymen, what more do you need? I especially liked the monstrous mechanical look of the psycho. "There's a lot of me in that car." And on the road. And on that other car...

SCORE: 3 out of 4 out of control Highwaymen
