Darkly humorous, witty and nasty, Freeway is an original take on the Red Riding Hood fairytale, featuring a wonderful performance by the teenage Reese Witherspoon, before she became a star

Combustible Celluloid

[The] characters are crisp and fascinating, and the movie has a great anything-can-happen B-movie excitement feel to it.

One of the most stubbornly original and electrifying films not only of 1996, but of the '90s, period.

There's not much edification in store, and [director] Bright cruises over some bumpy plot holes, but the teen's perspective does put a black comic spotlight on wider social hypocrisies.

It's just the sort of thing Oliver Stone strove so hard to achieve in Natural Born Killers, and [writer/director Matthew] Bright pulls it off effortlessly.

Freeway somehow manages to be hip, imaginative and hilarious. Road film, comedy, prison drama and Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers all rolled into one.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

I didn't particularly want to like Freeway, but I couldn't help myself. Reese Witherspoon made me.

Boxoffice Magazine

The great cast brings light-hearted humor and credibility to what could otherwise have been seen as a sickly exploitative (though well-written and directed) script.

| Original Score: 3.5/5

Laramie Movie Scope

Writer-director Matthew Bright does a great job for a first-time director. The plot is fascinating as it unfolds. Until the very end of the film you really can't tell what's coming next.
