Movie Info

Following up the 2002 horror flick Wes Craven Presents: They, director Robert Harmon took on this cat-and-mouse thriller written by Craig Mitchell and Hans Bauer, the writing team behind 1999's Komodo. Jim Caviezel stars as Rennie, a man who suddenly finds his life destroyed by tragedy when his wife is murdered by a mysterious serial killer (Colm Feore). The culprit, it seems, is a psychopath with a penchant for hunting down and killing random women, using his green 1972 Cadillac El Dorado as

Painted in shades of Mad Max, Duel, Crash and The Driver, Highwaymen is so derivative that it constantly reminds you of better films as it spits out a barrage of sound and fury.

Personagens detestáveis em um filme medíocre que ainda conta com uma conclusão moralmente desprezível. Uma experiência tão ruim quanto ser atropelado - talvez pior.

If you're looking for a long, solid laugh, Highwaymen will do the trick.

Elicits groans and the wrong kind of laughter.

We know exactly what the filmmakers are trying to do, and with the exception of the truly awful dialog, at least they do it efficiently.

As car wrecks go, Highwaymen is a five-lane pileup on the freeway to hell.

Both the well-choreographed crash scenes and the gritty cinematography hint at a better film. Shame no-one took the time to make it.

Delivers plenty of scares, wince-inducing scenes and indie-film stylistic fillips.

February 20, 2004

Lacks the sprawling, Westernized mythos of The Hitcher and feels, in the end, like a previously owned nightmare sorely in need of a new universal hell joint.

Jim Caviezel couldn't look more ridiculous even if he spoke Aramaic and wore a crown of thorns. Oh, wait. . .

Highwaymen has no interest in fleshing out its story; it's all bone, no meat, save for what ends up on the asphalt.

The cars get to have all the fun, and they don't have nearly enough of it.

Road rage taken to the extreme... something to tide you over until the summer no-brainer action movies come along.

A road trip you should definitely not of those movies that generates plenty of unintentional laughs as it drones on.

Audience Reviews for Highwaymen

Road movies are quite interesting in the horror medium. The notion of a psycho that creeps around the open road stalking his victims is quite frightening due to the fact it adds another dimension of exhilaration due to the fact at time many of the demented maniacs uses cars as their weapons. Highwaymen is an interesting horror thriller set on the open road where a maniac kills women with his 1972 El Dorado. For a low budget flick, this is quite good and it will surely interest genre fans and it definitely is a well crafted picture that is sure to creep you out. Of course the film has its flaws, but the cast is quite god and each bring something to the screen that makes this a tense and terrifying film. This is an overlooked gem that deserve to find a wider audience to the fact that it has an effective concept that works. The film is short, but is never dull, and it is a well crafted picture that will surely appeal to genre fans looking for low budget gems. The film works well enough for its short run time and the villain played by Colm Feore is chilling and quite memorable. The only downside to this film is that it is a bit too short, and it could have been a bit longer due to its interesting concept. Luckily director Robert Harmon manages to craft something terrifying, thrilling and quite compelling and that's enough to overcome the film's shortcomings. With a great cast, a good story and effective directing, Highwaymen is a worthwhile horror thriller that is worth seeing if you love road films. As it is, it a fine addition to the road rage genre and it does boast some entertaining sequences that will certainly appeal to horror fans. Highwaymen is imperfect, but is underrated and deserves to be at least viewed with an open mind.

A pretty decent Thriller which has it?s tense moments. A bit of a ?Death Proof? meets ?Crash? meets ?Death Wish? kind of film, with one man out for revenge, a half man, half mechanical killer and a victim playing bait.

The film did lack in explanation for motive I felt, but did offer a unique kind of killer.

Another to add to my Serial Killer list
