The film does whip up a genuine excitement and suspense. The director, Richard C. Sarafian, masterminds some gripping chase sequences, making good use of unknown actors and amateurs and a musical score that fits en route.

Aesthetically beautiful, emotionally very stirring.

If you thought the car parts in Tarantino's Death Proof provided the only worthwhile section of Grindhouse, Vanishing Point is the real deal.

should be seen as a particularly charged variant of a now extinct genre: the artsy B-movie

The action is almost entirely made up of one man driving a car at maximum speed from Denver to, hopefully, San Francisco.

A film all but overflowing with the revolting spirit of the oppressed. Bring the noise!

In a time when vacant retreads such as The Fast and the Furious are the problem, Vanishing Point is the answer.

Really nothing but a one hundred minute car chase across country, and I loved every minute of it...

The last quarter of Grindhouse was little more than a love note to this flick's towering excellence.

A fairly interesting, but somewhat muddled, road movie starring Newman as an ex-cop who now drives cars from Denver to San Francisco for a living.

The woodenness of both direction and Newman's performance becomes increasingly apparent.

A movie about which I can think of almost nothing good to say.

A beguiling, if silly pleasure.

A fairly entertaining chase flick, with a few artistic touches included to keep the thinking viewers happy.

A cult classic.

Takes full advantage of the subject's existential and mythical undertones without being pretentious, and you certainly get a run for your money, along with a lot of rock music.
