Storyline
Since the hit-and-run murder of his wife five years ago, Rennie Cray has crisscrossed America in his souped-up, stripped-down '68 Plymouth Barracuda, pursuing her killer. The man he seeks in a high-speed, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse is James Fargo, a merciless, wheelchair-bound pyschopath. Through a series of mechanical innovations, Fargo has turned his rampaging '72 Cadillac Eldorado into a monstrous extension of his own twisted body and mind. Now, their deadly battle of wits and wills is about to move into overdrive. And caught in their headlights is a tormented beauty who unwittingly holds the key to their ultimate showdown.

Did You Know?

Trivia:
Rennie Cray (Jim Caviezel) drive a 1968 Plymouth Barracuda with the 426 Hemi Package. This extremely rare "race prepped" car uses a 426 cubic inch Hemi V8, paired with light weight front bumpers and fenders. The car also omitted things such as sound deadening and rear seats to keep the weight down. A sticker reading "Accelerated Time Trials Only" was placed on the car. A mere 50 were made in 1968.

Goofs:
Continuity: Flipped shot: Right before you see that the El Dorado has been chained up to drag Boone's car down the road, we get a quick glimpse of the front of the Cadillac. The right headlight is supposed to be burned our (or broken) but it is working again and the license plat is reversed.

User Review

Hey it was pretty good, didn't get the distribution it deserved

Rating: 7/10

To me this movie was very good and fun. Many people are saying that this movie was bad, but judging by the trailer will you go see this movie expecting an Oscar winner? HELL NO! You just go see it just for fun. By watching the trailer you know what to expect, thrills, gore, chases, the fun stuff! The chase/action sequences were really intense and fun to watch. It was very well shot and some of the slow motion shots looked very nice. The acting was pretty good from all of the characters and made them a bit liakable but still i didn't cared who died and the characters were way more dumb than most movies. One of the main problem with this movie is that it was really short, and it could have had some character development, the scenes with the characters talking felt too rushed. The score was notting to be amazed by, it was too well normal. Some of the deaths were violent but notting too over the top. Still i enjoyed this movie very much, it was exactly what i expected a fun thrilling ride. Could have been better of course but what the heck. Go see it if you wanna have some fun with it, just don't take it seriously like most people on this board. (Forgive me if i wrote something wrong, since my first language is Spanish well i sometimes forget how to write some words).
