There's not much edification in store, and [director] Bright cruises over some bumpy plot holes, but the teen's perspective does put a black comic spotlight on wider social hypocrisies.
May 20, 2003
Freeway glints here and there with dark humor amounting to a knowing wink that undercuts the cautionary tale at its heart and the seriousness of its graphic sociology.
July 12, 2002
Cynical, stylish and witty.
June 18, 2002
Rude in the way the truth is rude -- only funnier.
February 14, 2001
It's too drawn-out, too talky and, at the most crucial moment, needlessly implausible, to sustain its humor and large dose of violence.
January 1, 2000
Like it or hate it (or both), you have to admire its skill, and the over-the-top virtuosity of Reese Witherspoon and Kiefer Sutherland.
March 13, 2019
Freeway is far from a perfect film but well worth seeing, even for those who don't count themselves as fans of Witherspoon.
January 2, 2018
The greatness of [Matthew] Bright's storytelling lies in his sympathy and admiration for his characters, especially his Red Riding Hood.
March 6, 2011
Darkly humorous, witty and nasty, Freeway is an original take on the Red Riding Hood fairytale, featuring a wonderful performance by the teenage Reese Witherspoon, before she became a star
January 28, 2011
[The] characters are crisp and fascinating, and the movie has a great anything-can-happen B-movie excitement feel to it.
