Critic Reviews for The Highwayman

All Critics (4)

Seems like another snicker-worthy straight-to-tape crime yarn: after all, it co-stars Jason Priestley as a badass armed robber named Breakfast.

Audience Reviews for The Highwayman


Several outcasts randomly hook up and go on a killing and crime spree, not particularly pleasant. The acting is pretty good. Violent, at first, you do feel for the characters but it wears thin and you start not caring. It climaxed too soon, then went downhill.

James Higgins
