Critic Reviews for Detour
"Detour" does a fine job of giving drivers yet another reason to stress out, but that anxiety doesn't extend to its hero's fate.
At times the groan and scream of collapsing metal sounds so authentic you might mistake Jackson's heavy breathing for your own.
"Nothing to do but wait," Jackson says early on, in the hopes of a quick response from emergency services. That's sitting through "Detour" in a nutshell.
This taut and effective thriller produces maximum suspense with a minimum of means.
Dickerson passes on the occasion for existential drama and goes for the race-against-the-clock urgency of an ordinary guy trying to crawl out of his predicament. It's effective enough, but there isn't much to it.
