4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific suspense (DVD REVIEW), March 13, 2002
This review is from: Joy Ride (DVD)
"Joy Ride" got many rave reviews when it was playing in theaters, and now I see why. The suspense is unrelenting. I liked the unusual villain, voiced by Ted Levine (unforgettable from Silence of the Lambs). It seemed like he had an almost supernatural hold on the trio of main characters, and his moves were certainly unpredictable. The cat-&-mouse game between the Nail's big rig and the brothers' vintage automobile reminded me of another similarly suspenseful movie called "Duel," the debut three decades ago from a director named Stephen Spielberg. That movie also featured an automobile driver being hunted by a never-seen truck driver. The DVD of "Joy Ride" has a bunch of interesting extra features. One of the alternate endings starts about half-way through the film and was about half an hour long! (And it unfolds in a very different way from the theatrical version.) And the feature that allows a side-by-side comparison of three different voices for the killer (incl. Eric Roberts) was fun.
