5.0 out of 5 stars Junkyard thriller! July 31, 2010
Forget the negative reviews. This film isn't for arthouse buffs, but people who like a good thrill ride. The main charactors are very likable, the acting is good and the action is plenty. Highly recommended!

"Exit Speed" is one of those ridiculously plotted pieces of bad movie madness that pits a resourceful band of strangers against an unlikely threat. Borrowing on every action movie cliche and built on disaster movie characterizations, "Exit Speed" is not positioned to be a great film. However, it does seeks to entertain on the most fundamental level. And within the confines of these limited goals and a viewer's limited expectations, "Exit Speed" is actually a fitfully fun and brutal ride. Assembling a cast of unknowns with big name talent such as Fred Ward, Lea Thompson, and Desmond Harrington (or do I overstate "big name"?), the movie accomplishes its mission, in my estimation, simply because I liked the characters. True, they are more a collection of usual types than actual people, but the appealing cast brought enough to the screenplay to make me actually root for their survival.

On a Christmas Eve in Texas, a bus encounters a band of motorcycle marauders. As the villains taunt the bus, a fatal accident occurs and opens the Pandora's Box of violent retribution. The plucky and scrappy passengers include Thompson as a single mother, Harrington as a deadbeat dad, a soldier on the run (Julia Mond) and various other expected types. The sadistic gang of murderous bikers are one of the delights of bad movie plotting--they lack any sense of reality, they exist only to terrorize. In fact, they aren't even characters in this piece--they have zero motivation or even dialogue--they're just evil incarnate. That may be why I don't like rural Texas! The survivors band together in an old junkyard with little but their cunning, their smarts, and their determination--and it's an all out war for survival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Thriller With Heart July 26, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched "Exit Speed" on Demand when it came out because for one I Love Desmond Harrington "Wrong Turn" and the Synopsis sounded like something I would enjoy and I did enjoy it"alot".

If you want to watch a Vicious gang of sociopathic blood thirsty bikers that terrorize anyone who gets in their way then you will like this movie.
I was surprised that for a movie that started off without a dark feel to it that there was so much blood and some gore..

This combined with GREAT characters that you get emotionally caught up in , great actors, plenty of action and a fierce battle for control and survival make it hard to blink. I was totally engrossed in this movie I have actually watched it three times already because in my opinion it has all the elements I need for a movie to have multiple watch-a-bility.

Regardless if some of the details might not be spot on I HIGHLY recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made me squeal! March 11, 2009
I stumbled into watching this movie (long story) and ended up really enjoying it. Unlike most action films (and granted, I don't watch that many), this had really well-drawn characters. Lots of great moments. Kelli Hancock as the tough-talking chick in a reindeer headband. Wally White as the guy on the bus who sells soap to hotels. Confused Roy Samuelson who opens the movie. Texas sheriff Asante Jones. (thank goodness for imdb, huh?)

I squealed two or three times during the film and even got teary once (Lea Thompson!). A surprising find!

4.0 out of 5 stars Exit Speed June 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I happened to see this by renting it because the plotline sounded interesting. Although I didn't expect a hit because it is considered a B movie, I loved it. Personally I enjoy action movies with a mixed group of people that need to pitch in together to fight off a common foe. In this case a crazed biker gang. A hodge podge of people board a bus in Texas not realizing several will die getting to their destination. The bus is attacked by some bikers. The events that follow cause the bikers to decide to trail the bus for kicks because they are so doped up they really don't care about anything or anybody. As we know fast moving buses don't always stay on the road so the rag tag group must seek shelter in a junkyard to avoid the attack of the killer bikers. I don't expect this movie to earn critical acclaim, but the average action thriller fan won't be disappointed.

Fred Ward isn't on the bus but is a military officer after an AWOL soldier that is on the bus. Ward doesn't have as large a part as the other notable actors but every scene you see him in you wished they used him more. The key roles are the bus passengers and they are all excellent in their parts. Although the overall storyline isn't new, we have all seen bikers attack families, other gangs, et cetera, but what they do with their little group is great. I never quite knew what to expect and when each passengers talent comes to light you should be entertained with how it is done. I have to say I enjoyed this as much as Speed (Widescreen Edition) even though it obviously didn't have the same kind of starpower or budget. Needless to say I immediately ordered it after watching it. Great movie and I see me revisting it regularly.
