    Format:DVD
    An improved version of the already high-caliber 1986 "Hitcher" starring Rutger Hauer, this new incarnation casts Sean Bean ("Lord Of The Rings", "The Dark", "Silent Hill") as an even deadlier and more twisted title villain, and Sophia Bush ("Stay Alive") and Zachary Knighton ("The Prince And Me") as young lovers Grace and Jim, who on a road trip encounter the hitcher in the middle of a rainstorm, and become the prime targets of his obsession.

    The Hitcher has been upped to where he's about as dangerous as a human being can be without raising the question of the supernatural. No remorse, apparantly no fear of death or pain, disturbingly with no apparant motivation, indisputably evil, and yet retaining an undeniable charismatic edge, as well as a huge air of mystery (his background, and even his real name, are never revealed) the character slashes and shotgun-blasts his way into the upper tier as one of the most instantly memorable killers to rampage across the screen in recent years. Zachary Knighton and the smolderingly gorgeous and cute-as-a-button Sophia Bush are likable and believable as the main couple of the film. Strong performances are turned in by the rest of the cast as well, and the tight flow of the movie encompasses psychological terror and suspense, up-close visceral carnage, and some of the most intense and high-octane highway chase/battle action ever seen, way above that seen in many higher profile action blockbusters with five times the budget. It attains a highly active tension and tightness the likes of which have not quite been reached by many of its more famous horror-thriller hybrid peers.

    "The Hitcher" delivers on all counts it takes on, and is highly recommended for fans of such movies as the '86 original, "Highwaymen" (by original "Hitcher" director Robert Harmon), the "Hills Have Eyes" movies, and "The Vanishing".

    3.0 out of 5 stars Road-Killer May 26, 2007
    Format:DVD
    "The Hitcher" is a so-so film that desperately wants to be a killer music video. Starring Sophia Bush (that One Tree Hill girl who is so pretty it makes my eyes water) and Zachary Knighton (I'd never heard of him before, but he looks like the type who'd date Sophia Bush), the film wastes no time with pleasantries. The two lovers hit the road, and then the road hits back.

    The road in my oh-so-clever analogy turns out to be John Ryder, the hitcher, a man with a grudge against life. Literally. In one of his first lines of the film, Ryder admits that the reason he tortures, maims, and kills people is because he wants someone to stop him. This sort of Swiftean take on nihilism is often used by scriptwriters to give a character license to indulge in flat-eyed melodrama (emotive beef jerky, I call it), but Sean Bean -- as the unflagging madman -- lets his desperation and his senseless rage simmer without boiling over into false theatrics. Bean is really the reason to watch this film.

    It's too bad he's not in it more than he is. Most of the time we are forced to watch Bush and Knighton wander around making typically bad decisions and then griping or whining about it to each other when there's a break in the action.

    I don't blame the actors. These sorts of brash bonanzas of violence and destruction don't really need much in the way of plotting to do their job, but they do need some kind of decent writing. I mean, take a look at Spielberg's Duel. For a movie with such a minimal plot and perhaps two pages of dialogue, this film works macabre magic.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Underated ReMake May 22, 2007
    Format:DVD
    It is simply stupid to hate a movie simply because it is a remake. That is the reason for the majority of bad reviews coming in on this movie.

    The Hitcher is a clever sculpted movie with great style and great screen prescence. The acting was somewhat lopsided I'll admit. Zachary Knighton pulled off his character well enough and Sophia Bush didn't do badly either but both of them were brushed aside by the mere presence of Sean Bean. He was brilliant! There really aren't too many more words to describe his work.

    His role as John Ryder was played perfectly, so deep and so real. He made a chilling villian, one that you can seriously hate and root for at the same time. He pulled off an American accent quite convincingly, and even better was his costume and hair. They were very well done. The entire set and scenery was well placed and very well shot.

    The horror was as horror should be, suspensful and gory but the blood was tastefully placed and not needlessly splattered all over the screen. The killings were done with such simplistic reality it was almost frightening.

    Overall the movie was a great one and definately deserves a spot in your movie collection. Sean Bean's acting is enough to merit that.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought it would be June 18, 2007
    By Kelly
    Format:DVD
    THE HITCHER is actually a pretty good remake, and a pretty good thriller. I think we all know the premise: a young couple meets a hitchiker who ends up being a murderer. It's more than that though.. you get to care about the characeters, and you get to know them.
    The two stand outs are clearly SEAN BEAN and SOPHIA BUSH. They both do a wonderful job. Sean Bean is just creepy as hell in this.. he will really scare the hell outta you. Sophia Bush shows that she can do more than One Tree Hill and teen drama's.. she is a good actress in this.
    Have fun with the movie. Don't expect a masterpiece, but it certainly is good. Don't write it off because you don't like remakes.

    Why do they keep bringing out Combo HD DVD/Standard DVDs?
    I agree that the combo HD/DVD is pretty pointless. I do own a HD player, and it plays my other standard DVD's fine, but I feel somewhat cheated having to buy combo discs. It's like purchasing TWO copies of the same movie. I notice a lot of movies are coming out in either one or the other formats,... Read More
