Movie Info

It's Christmas Eve and ten people board a bus travelling across Texas. Marathon runner Maudie McMinn (Lea Thompson), High School soccer coach Jerry (Gregory Jbara) and Corporal Merideth Cole (Julie Mond) are among those heading home to visit family and friends, some in search of new jobs and some just looking for a fresh start. On a deserted section of highway, the bus collides with a nomadic biker wired on crystal meth. But when the passengers go to his aid, he opens fire on the bus and in terrified self-defense they retaliate and kill the crazed gunman. With the murder being witnessed by the rest of his biker gang, the bus is ambushed and forced off the road. The passengers take refuge in an abandoned wrecking yard and watching in horror, they soon find themselves surrounded by the ferocious pack of knife and gun wielding lunatics. -- (C) 2020 Filmsmore

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.

In a nutshell, 'Exit Speed' is a thriller about a group of passengers travelling to Texas when, on the way, they are attacked by a murderous biker gang. Forced off the road, the passengers take refuge in an abandoned wrecking yard. As they watch in horror, the bikers surround the place before sending one of their own to bring back the rest of the pack. While the remaining bikers launch probing attacks, the passengers rely on improvised weapons and sheer guts to mount a defense. Their numbers dwindling, the passengers realize they must do the unthinkable in order to survive.
