neither Walker nor the script can keep your interest for the duration, with action set pieces and intrusive music overpowering what should have been a claustrophobic and tense experience

Paul Walker is fine behind the wheel. But the chases are shot ineptly and what's a car chase movie without good looking chases?

As one incoherent action scene follows another, one's left staring at a film with nothing to respond to, waiting for it all to be over.

Vehicle 19 is best when it's silent.
May 15, 2013
An interesting idea paired with lacklustre execution makes for a passable rather than thrilling ride.

Low-tech and initially diverting, the feature soon rides on dramatically bald tires with Walker in the lead role, unable to squeeze out the necessary anguish to communicate the wrong place, wrong time feel of the script.

The plot is brainless even for a Paul Walker movie. Get ready for "The Slow and the Spurious."

OMG, is this supposed to be this funny?

The degree to which Vehicle 19 flounders and ultimately fails is, to put it mildly, rather disappointing...

A lean, low-budget and claustrophobic mistaken-identity thriller that's so stripped-down, it's nearly nonexistent.

Every line that comes from Walker's stiff mouth sounds like a failed aphorism.

It's pure formula...but will give Fast and Furious fans something to drool over until the next F&F instalment comes skidding around the corner.

The script is overwhelmed by cliches and implausibilities.

At first it's intriguing, then annoying, and finally it gives us the urge to get out and walk.

Mr. Walker's character is haunted by a troubled past, but the film would have been better if it had given him more to do in the present.

Good location work, albeit mostly inside the car, doesn't save the film from absurdity.

[Walker] is forced to really act here. It's a task he faces with admirable dedication, if not unqualified success.

Vehicle 19 sets up a fascinating conceit for itself, and then loses interest in delivering on it. It just wants to get to the cool car chase, but by the time it does, we've stopped caring.

Neither particularly fast nor furious.

Plagued by a lack of drive and energy, Vehicle 19 is neither fast nor furious enough to be a satisfying ride.
