Audience Reviews for Exit Speed

Considering that this is an independent production, Exit Speed is a surprising film. Though not excellent by any means, Exit Speed is a terrific accomplishment with a surprising good cast of actors. It's clear that Exit Speed take it's influence from the Mad Max and first Speed films, but it's a film that fairly well done, despite the fact that is a strong influence of those films. Theres plenty of good things going on in the film to keep you interested. Though the plot is not too original, theres nonetheless a good story displayed here. The cast of actors of well known actors are Fred Ward from Tremors series, Lea Thompson from Back To The Future and Red Dawn and Desmond Harrington from tv's Dexter. After a bus collides with a meth addicted biker, a meth addicted biker gang seeks out revenge on the group of passengers traveling on the bus. What follows is an action packed thrill ride. Exit Speed is clearly a B movie, but is very well made considering that. The film does have a good, simple story, and it has decent enough acting. Nothing too special, but nothing awful either. Exit Speed is a surprising film because, honestly, I did not expect anything good out of this film, but I finished it and I was very impressed with. Sure there are things that could have been improved upon. But considering that this film was made by an independent studio and small time director; you have to give this film credit in delivering something interesting on screen.. Really the ony thing that they could've changed was the soundtrack, which totally sucked. The films soundtrack sounded like it was made using a Casio keyboard. The films simple story of passengers fighting against a ruthless biker gang is pretty effective and shows that you don't need anything elaborate to create pulse pounding action.

Exit Speed has no big stars and not much production value, but it offers an agreeable enough entertainment adventure. It definitely has that low-budget, made-for-TV vibe. I actually think that this could have been a solid big screen movie with an upgraded cast and a bigger budget.

The plot basically pits some everyday bus passengers against a biker gang out in the middle of nowhere. Some familiar character types are here, but there's also some left-field personalities (bow and arrow elven princess!) to keep the movie from being too cliché. It does drag on a bit, but it's extremely satisfying to see all the bikers meet their end at the climax. Watch it, if these kinds of movies are your thing.

Assault on Precinct 13 meets Mad Max in this enjoyable B-move with the always great Desmond Harrington and Fred Ward. The pace is always good and there are some decent surprises.
