This film has no excuse whatsoever for being as bad as it is, except for an idiotic script and director. This film had the money, the technology, the time, and the eye-candy to be good. It's a simple premise for a film, nigh impossible to screw up. "Rest Stop" is one big screw up.
It's expected that when a movie begins with a road trip, there will be an almost mandatory music video montage. Acoustic guitar will play, scenes of the happy travelers cruising along in their car past farms, cities, etc. will play out. They will fumble with the radio and make silly faces, smoke dope, laugh etc. The director chose to up that count a bit, and as a result several times in this film the viewer is sitting around watching what is effect a meaningless music video.
The girl picks up a bottle of whisky and starts pugging away, and thus begins the next full-song, music video showcase. Shots of her swigging, crying, throwing things, etc, to the sound of the music.
Fast-Forward time, several times this happens.
Long, drawn out sequences of characters crying, sappy music blaring, for what seems like an eternity. Everything in this movie is drawn out far longer than it needs to be, hence the title of my review. I ended up just fast-forwarding 5 minutes of what needed to be a one or two minute scene. We get it, the character is sad, they are crying. Move on.Read more ›
They eventually stop at a backwoods rest stop and the movie moves distinctly into science fiction territory. Ever since Seven, and more recently Saw, moviemakers have been trying to one up each other in creating the most disgusting room imaginable. The ladies restroom is one of those over the top places. The only thing missing is George Michael with his pants around his ankles. My lady friend watching the film with me expressed amazement that any woman would enter such a room let alone use the facilities. I am a guy and I wouldn't use them. A meth-addicted hooker would think twice about using the facilities. Needless to say, Jaimie Alexander's character loses all credibility when she plops herself down.
Actually, Alexander's character loses credibility repeatedly in the film. As written she is one of the dumbest heroines ever seen in a movie. (My personal favorite sticking her fingers through the door at the killer, which he naturally bites off.Read more ›
