Hit and Miss

Some reviewers are making like this is the worst movie in the world; it's no "Duel" but it's not "Wheels of Terror", either. Jim Caviezel criss-crosses the United States tracking Colm Feore,who manages to visibly shred the scenery even behind the tinted windows of his Avacado green Eldorado of death. Along the way, he runs into (oooh, bad choice of words) Rhona Mitra, the only survivor of Colm's latest rampage. While some of the plot is pretty unbelievable (I think even the police in podunk would eventually put it together that all these young women were killed by a car that looks like a guacamole and chrome-covered parade float; hitting a body with a car does not result in blood-stains that can be taken care of at a car wash, it results in major body damage and smashed glass; even a car as heavy as a '72 Eldorado will not cause another car to flip up into the air like hitting a trash can), there are a lot of parts of this movie that are really uncomfortable to sit through- in a good, suspensful way.
Solid suspense, decent performances, evil Cadillacs and a good guy in a souped-up Barracuda. What more do you want?
