The Hitcher 2007

The Hitcher

Critics Consensus

Sean Bean tries giving motive and emotion to The Hitcher, but director Dave Meyers is more interested in cheap shocks, and gratuitous gore and torture.

Grace (Sophia Bush) and Jim (Zachary Knighton) are a pair of college students on their way to spring break in a 1970 Oldsmobile. Blissfully unaware of the horror that awaits them, they offer a ride to hitchhiker John Ryder (Sean Bean), a killer who subsequently terrorizes the couple and implicates them in a grisly slaying.

    God, this is a terrible remake of a great film! All of the main plot points and set pieces are present and correct but none come close to the 86 original and there is no way that Bean can replicate the great Rutger Hauer. Also the young couple (why a couple and not a single driver I have no idea!) are stereotypical Hollywood cattle and bring no depth to their characters. C Thomas Howell was never a great actor but 'The Hitcher' was his greatest moment on film and these guys don't come close to his talent! Avoid at all costs and stick to the 1986 film.

    Bad remake of a good movie. Watch the 1986 version instead.
