Mindless fun ride but still fun.

rated golden! barely qualifies as a remake because it is so different from the original, but is a decent movie with a spiritual ending.

With the brilliant if flawed 1971 original easily available, there's no need to waste your time on this clunker. The plot of this remake eliminates the existentialism that so drove the original, by giving a reason/purpose for Kowalski's driving. Terrible, terrible movie. As much as I like Viggio Nortensen & David Keith, both are totally wasted in this, portraying stock characters.

Survey says: Skip it! In fact run far, far away from it!!

Young Viggo shows promise in this occasionally entertaining remake.

Rather farfetched plot, one long Dukes of Hazard episode car chase, and an ending I didn't like.

This TV remake of the cult 1971 picture makes the mistake of trying to add more plot (tedious), more motivation (implausible), and more characterization (stupid) - the original said so much more with a lot less.

ok remake of the 1971 classic of the same name

Good storyline with a sad ending but I just didn't understand how an eight hour trip could take over a three day ordeal. The chases were far fetched and half the time you couldn't tell who was who. It was rough to watch, don't waste your time with this movie.

A completely inept remake of a classic chase film. The movie beats its audience over the head with religious themes. The plot is bereft of any grit, and is pretty implausible, the script is ham-fisted, and the characters are flat and seem to be written in either because they were in the original, or for plot convenience. Theres nothing to say about the sound track, its just there because movies have soundtracks. This remake completely fails to capture any of the charm that made the original a cult classic.

Vanishing Point is an okay film. Viggo Mortensen's performance was the only good thing. The script was acceptable. I thought the action was lame and the ending is mind-boggling and manipulative. I would not recommend this film.

Your classic 'B' favorite part is when the Indian helps him hide his car and he asks the Indian how can I help you and the guy replys,"take me to the rez". I was stoned when I watched it and I laughed my ass off!!
