We are clobbered with excess as if we wouldn't understand a subtle fable.

This is not a film for everyone, in fact, it's main appeal is in the gross fascination for the grotesque.

Freeway is not good satire, it's not good comedy, and it's not in the least bit entertaining.

Austin Chronicle

A white-trash riff on Little Red Riding Hood, the oddly titled Freeway is a road movie that hits a dead end.

If you're into despicable trash that is completely without redeeming value, Freeway is for you.

It's too drawn-out, too talky and, at the most crucial moment, needlessly implausible, to sustain its humor and large dose of violence.

Freeway glints here and there with dark humor amounting to a knowing wink that undercuts the cautionary tale at its heart and the seriousness of its graphic sociology.

Like it or hate it (or both), you have to admire its skill, and the over-the-top virtuosity of Reese Witherspoon and Kiefer Sutherland.

Shockingly dark and nasty take on the Red Riding Hood tale.

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

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

A wild, audacious drive-in attraction that takes the 'high' from 'highbrow' and the 'low' from 'lowdown' and shakes them up.

Hilariously cheap but oddly reflective at times.

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.
