Editorial Reviews

Rubber is the story of Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert and then suddenly and inexplicably comes to life. As Robert roams the bleak landscape, he discovers that he possesses terrifying telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes. At first content to prey on discarded objects and small desert creatures, his attention soon turns to humans, especially a beautiful and mysterious woman who crosses his path. Leaving a swath of destruction behind, Robert becomes a chaotic force and truly a movie villain for the ages.

This is a five-star movie all the way, but it will get a lot of bad reviews from people looking for a horror movie, which it is not. It is a movie about movies and about audiences, from an absurdist perspective.

With a premise about as ridiculous as anything SyFy has served up (you know, the people who gave us Dinopossum vs. Crocopillar... or something like that), I expected this thing to peg the old Cheese-o-Meter. C'mon... A tire comes to life and starts killing everyone in sight? Instead, what we have here is a very funny, very literate, and very absurd little film with some great performances.

I fear that explaining what goes on will ruin the pleasure of discovery for those who would appreciate this movie. So I won't.

I'll just say that if you're looking for a horror movie, or a cheesy horror movie, this is not the film you're looking for--go about your business elsewhere. But if the word "absurd" doesn't scare you off, give this movie a try.

Ever watch a movie that is so weird and goofy you spend most of it going, I shouldn't keep watching this....it's too weird? But you do finish it after this internal dialogue and then sit back and ponder what the hell did I just watch and how come i'm strangely entertained? Yeah..this is what happened when I watched this movie. It is very bizarre. Almost Eraserhead weird. Yeah, that's a good comparison. If you liked Eraserhead and you were not high, you will probably dig this for it's supreme weirdness. If you we high, party on dude this one is for you. Dude a tire totally blowd up a dude's head with his....mind bro...Whoa! Yep. It's a weird one. Did I mention it was weird? Yeah..weird. Good word for this one.

I only give it three stars because....well you know.

This is one of the most original and oddest movies I have ever seen.

The movie is about the quest for self-awareness by a discarded tire.

Eventually, it recognizes its destiny is to liberate all the other tires in the world.

Minus one star, because it is clear that the humans lose at the end of the film.

There is actually a very deep religious sub-text to this film.

Humans are the tires' "creators."

The tire's main epiphany comes when it sees the creators tossing many tires onto a giant, sulpherous, burning fire.

Then, as it strikes back at the creators, the tire is eventually "killed" by a creator, and is resurrected as a child's toy, a tricycle (triune - get it) and brings other tires to self awareness.

An omage piece brilliant in its lunacy. The tale of a tire that gains self-awareness and psycho-connetic powers then roams the Southwestern U.S. causing mayhem an destruction is the setting for movie with no reason or ryhme but a strange sense of direction.
There are no free turkey dinners, thats not extra pepperoni and that tire is a real jerk. Enjoy!

I tend to watch a lot of off-beat and non-mainstream movies. When you do this, you'll come across as much garbage as there was in the trash compactor scene in the original STAR WARS. However, every once in a while you'll uncover a gem. Sometimes, you'll uncover a really unusual movie that's really not all that great, but is so unusual that the very oddity and absurdity of it makes it stand out and worth watching through. RUBBER is one of those movies.

RUBBER is a movie about a killer tire. The film opens with a man (Jack Plotnick) standing out in the middle of the desert covered in binoculars. Then a car comes driving up a dirt road destroying a bunch of wooden chairs that have been set up as though they were orange safety cones. The car stops and a man in a police uniform (Stephen Spinella) gets out and begins talking into the camera. He gives a long monologue about in every great movie there is an element of something happening for "no reason" and that's what this movie is all about. He then dumps out the beverage in his hand and jumps back into the car and is driven off. Then the man with the binoculars begins passing out binoculars to a group of spectators standing behind roped off pillars. The people take their binoculars and turn around and begin watching the movie. Throughout the rest of the film RUBBER moves back and forth between the action of Robert the Tire and the audience. Towards the end of the movie, the audience actually becomes a part of the movie.

So, with the absurdist theatre element in place, the main "action" follows the deeds of Robert the Tire. It's never explained in the movie how or why (and Robert isn't even given a name, except in the special features and in promotional materials) Robert comes to be. He just rises out of the dirt and is.

The trailer for this movie promised something amazing: a mock horror movie about a tire named Robert who, after witnessing a burning pile of his tire brethren, goes on a killing spree, popping heads with his psychic powers. That movie's in "Rubber", but it's broken up by a boring, poorly-paced, unfunny frame narrative about an audience standing in the desert, complaining that the movie is slow, boring, and weird (meanwhile an agent from the studio tries to kill off the annoying audience so they can stop making the movie altogether).
It's a shame because the scenes with the tire are really good. The director uses all practical effects and succeeds in making you believe that a living tire is doing these things. The scenes with the audience, however, feel like an apology for the movie, like the director assumed that people would hate it and decided to get his revenge on the people who can't suspend their disbelief and simply enjoy a killer tire.
The movie's worth a rental, just to see the tire, but it would have been much better if it was played straight.
