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".

"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.

Yet another pointless remake of a PERFECT original. Why do they keep doing this???? THE OMEN, WICKER MAN, HALLOWEEN, BLACK CHRISTMAS, TEXAS CHAINSAW, etc. were all just fine the way they were, (thank you very much), and their remakes brought nothing new to the party. (If anything, these horrible horror remakes will keep newcomers away from the wonderful originals - IN DROVES!)

And the films that could use a facelift - (Not quite good but almost good horror films such as THE FOG, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS, APRIL FOOLS DAY) - were botched even worse than the original films that they hoped to fix! And now we have PROM NIGHT waiting in the wings.

Has Hollywood run out of ideas???? Can FRIDAY THE 13TH, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, THE EVIL DEAD, THE EXORCIST or JAWS be far behind? And while it may not seem like that much to you 20 or 30 somethings, (after all, its just OLD movies right?), let me remind you that one day you'll be crying out as SCREAM, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and SAW join them.

Please, Hollywood, stop this insanity! Stay away from our beloved, treasured horror classics and give us some NEW CLASSICS to savor.

We're begging you.

What would you do if you encountered a psycho-path? This film takes a look at what two average young people would do when confronted by a madman who has one wish: To be put to death. Until then he will continue on with the carnage.

I seen this movie in theaters and was really excited for it to come out on DVD. However after watching it a few times it just becomes too boring. The action level is pretty good and of course theres a hot girl to look at who jumps out of a burning van holding a gun.
