Driving cross-country to a job interview*Colin opts for a shortcut and happens across a fatal car accident. One of the drivers*the intriguing Jina*is shaken but not hurt*while the other lies dead - leaving a suitcase full of money without an owner. Colin resists temptation and hands it into the local cop*wanting to get on his way. But what initially seemed to be a good deed prompts a series of strange events to unfold*where nothing is quite what it seems*and Colin quickly finds it hard to leave town.

"Swerve" is an Australian movie from 2011 that is just now making its DVD/Blu debut in North America from the Cohen Media Group (a company that has covered some truly great releases). I think it's fair to say that it represents, perhaps, my favorite genre of film. Marketed as a twisty thriller, the story features an appealing cast that includes familiar faces like Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, TV's The Chicago Code, and Showtime's often undervalued Brotherhood), David Lyons (TV's Revolution, The Cape and ER), and Emma Booth (Underbelly). For these movies to really work, the characters have to remain ambiguous and the plot has to have the ability to surprise you. The viewer should never know exactly who is zooming who. And that's what makes these pictures so much fun, they are like puzzles in which you never know what might happen next. Unfortunately, "Swerve" sets up just that scenario but really doesn't know what to do with it. Expecting intricate plotting, I was rather disappointed in just how straightforward (hence rather unimaginative) this turned out to be. It's perfectly watchable, to be sure, but I won't remember a thing about it in a couple of weeks.

I really liked the introductory set-up to "Swerve." In the desolate Australian Outback, three strangers are about to (almost literally) collide. We meet a traveler with car trouble (Lyons), a woman fleeing her home (Booth), and a man having completed a violent drug deal. In one moment, their three cars careen around to avoid an accident and destiny is set in motion. A bag full of money becomes the catalyst for an adventure that will also include a local law enforcement officer (Clarke), curious townies, and bad guys bent on getting the money back. It's a great beginning with a few nice surprises.

Great premise and I had high hopes for this but it was disappointing. Visually it was very stunning but the characters were vague and I'm just not sure what happened. Was Jina trying to get rid of Colin? Who was the money for? Who was the guy looking for the money? What did the line from the bartender at the end mean? There was a moment when they got to the well and I thought, here's where it picks up - but it never did. Frank seemed more interested in just beating up anyone who looked at his wife. Colin should've hightailed it out of there at the first chance. He didn't seem interested in Jina despite her attempts so why was he hanging around? 3 stars for cinematography, 2 stars for actual plot.

While not a great film it remains an enjoyable viewing experience. I enjoy the actors in this film, especially David Lyons, who has become one of my favorite actors the last couple of years -- one of those actors who never disappoints. Interesting characters coupled with the kind of story line you expect in these kind of films. The scenery serves as a character in this film, catching your attention and encouraging your eye to roam about the screen. Ultimately, my husband and I enjoyed the reminder that no good deed goes unpunished. A cool ironic ending that made me chuckle. A fun film to watch with friends.

This movie was ok... though I did fall asleep in the middle of it. There were a couple of twists at the end of this movie, so I'm glad I stuck with it.

I thought there would be more of a plot and suspense. You could easily predict what was coming next. Average movie
