Solid suspense, decent performances, evil Cadillacs and a good guy in a souped-up Barracuda. What more do you want?
Jim Caviezel (Passion of the Christ, Frequency, High Crimes) proves he is a versatile actor in the role of Renny, a young doctor who saw his wife get killed and in an act of fury and revenge, crippled the hit and run driver. However, this is not a one shot thing----the guy's been doing it for years, and now five years later, he is still at it. Only this time, he manages to kill one girl but leaves another one alive---and he just has to get rid of her. He has also been tormenting Caviezel for years, sending him news clippings, letters, etc.
Rhona Mitra (Beowulf) co-stars as Molly, the hit and runner's latest attempt. She has a fear of driving, as her mother and father were killed in an auto accident, leaving her not only an orphan but a woman terrified of driving. Her performance matches Caviezel's in its quiet intensity. Reliable actor Colm Feore (Storm of the Century) plays the psycho, whose restructured body, and accommodating driving tools, lends him a terrifying presence.
The movie is well photographed and Mark Isham's score is appropriately haunting.
A very well done, missed gem.
The film opens somewhere on the plains of America where a beautiful woman is buying fruit from a lonely roadside vendor: her husband Rennie (Jim Caviezel) watches her with adoring eyes from a lonely motel balcony. But out of the dust of the highway appears a one headlight dirty 1972 Cadillac El Dorado and in seconds Rennie's wife lies dead in the street.
Flash forward 5 years and Rennie has given up his life as a doctor, has apparently been hunting down his wife's murderer, discovering that the murderer is a bizarre serial killer named Fargo (Colm Feore), a psychopath who is addicted to killing young women by hit and run and suffers the loss of limbs now replaced with robotic extensions.
Rennie knows the MO of Fargo and when another woman becomes a victim of the serial killer, Rennie follows the investigation with a Traffic inspector (Frankie Faison): there were two women in the destroyed car - Alex (Andrea Roth) who is killed and Molly (Rhona Mitra) who survives. Rennie's drive for revenge creates a bond with Molly and between the two of them the wild car chases and ballistics pummel to the terrifying end of the film.
No, the story is not unique, but it has enough of a twist on a plot line to keep suspense afloat. The photography is on target and the music of Mark Isham (as usual) enhances the tension. A good movie, not a great movie, but one that is fairly well polished in the terror genre. Grady Harp October 2004
