Kind Of A Grade 'B' 'Hitcher'

If you are familiar with "The Hitcher," with Rutger Hauer, and liked it, you might like this one. The main difference in the two movies is that in here, the killer never leaves his car. It's not as intense or well-made as the former, but Highwaymen is decent enough for one look. It's very short so you aren't going to be wasting the whole day, anyway.

The story in a nutshell: a serial killer runs down a young woman in his car at random and is not caught for years until Jim Caviezel, whose wife also was a victim of the killer, figures out it's the same guy, and tracks him down for a showdown of his own.

The film starts out well, and is very intense, but loses momentum in the second half. Boredom isn't the problem, it's the credibility of the story. There are just too many holes in the plot and nothing becomes credible. It's no wonder this movie never got much publicity: it has too much of a "B" feel to it, despite Caviezel's presence.

However, it is entertaining and the actual running time of the story is a mere 76 minutes, so if you're looking for an hour-and-a-quarter of escapism, this is it.

A Movie of Stunts

James 'Rennie' Cray (Jim Caviezel) is a man who has been chasing the psychopath Fargo (Colm Feore) for years. Fargo kills lonely women in roads, and Rennie's beloved wife was one of his victims. When the traumatized Molly (Rhone Mitra) escapes from Fargo in a tunnel, Rennie uses her as bait to attract Fargo and eliminate him.

"Highwaymen" is a movie with great action scenes, but also having an imbecile, incredible and full of clichés story. Indeed it is a movie of stunts, which wastes the good actors Jim Caviezel and Colm Feore. It is very impressive the scene, in the beginning of the story, when Fargo runs over Rennie's wife. I found amazing the resemblance between the actress Rhona Mitra and Sandra Bullock. Therefore, "Highwaymen" is a forgettable movie, indicated for killing time only. My vote is five.

Lean and mean

This lean, fast-paced thriller does exactly what it says on the tin: it delivers a breakneck contest between two men, modern day knights of the road, tooling up for a life or death battle. Director Robert Harmon made THE HITCHER back in the day so he's on familiar ground in this movie. Essentially, at 80 minutes in length, it's nothing more than a series of car chases, all of them shot with verve and intensity. Characterisation takes a back seat, the story isn't much to write home about and the script is largely forgettable. But the car chase scenes are good, and that's the important thing.

Jim Caviezel (OUTLANDER) is fine as the hero, and Rhona Mitra (DOOMSDAY) acceptable as the damsel-in-distress. I particularly liked Frankie Faison's world weary cop, even if his character is a bit of a cliché. Colm Feore is perfectly despicable as the villain of the piece. Things build up to a nice set-piece climax that definitely isn't for the politically correct among us. I liked it.
