A bit lacking in suspense and thrills... but I love the acting and obviously the mayhem...

As bad a sequel as possible. Completely ruined the original in every way, shape, and form.

something little bit fresh in those slasher-trucker movies... quite watchable

It may not be on par with the original,but it is one of the best thriller sequels ever created.

Four friends are left stranded on the road to Vegas after their car breaks down, but luckily they find an abandoned house with a running automobile that they decide to use to get to safety. Unfortunately for them, they have just borrowed the car of a crazed killer that stalks them in his giant semi as they head back out onto the highway. It's another twisted game of cat-and-mouse in JOY RIDE 2, only this time, the stakes are stupider than ever! What a misleading title. Rusty Nail returns to torture a new batch of twenty-somethings using childish pranks to match the absurd plotting, but thankfully, there is enough bloodshed along the way to keep us mildly entertained. Watch in horror as one of the characters strips to her panties! Reel in terror as another of the guys has to dress like a prostitute at a local truck stop! Puke in madness at the tired Horror tropes and dated pop culture references! Between the irritating characters and their mindless chatter, it is often difficult to stay awake, but for the precious little nuggets of gore that occasionally make their way to the screen. JOY RIDE 2 should be one of your last stops on the highway of horror.

Hated how she threatened the guy with his life just to save her boyfriend's. It didn't need the torture and gore. The first one was better, although this one went out faster.

A crappy sequel stick to the first Joy Ride film with Paul Walker in it because the first one has well done action scenes, good actors and and an ingenious ending. This sequel does not offer any good aspect and it results a very crappy and enormously boring film. My recommendation is to skip this film.

Actually starts out okay, in a mindless sort of way, but goes steadily downhill.
Way inferior to the original movie. Cast are not too bad, considering, but it really is a second rate effort.

The "I'll do whatever he wants me to!" started everything. And saying this was absolutely stupid.

Although not quite as polished as its predecessor, 'Joy Ride 2' is an effective suspense yarn that never seems to let up. The torture porn sequence in the final act does, however, put the breaks on the momentum, but the climax is rewarding enough.

Released as 'Roadkill 2: Dead Ahead' in Australia.

Fairly similar to joy ride 1, but it is not quite as good because the ending is not very satisfying (there is no way anyone could survive after driving of a huge cliff in an exploded truck) and the story seems a bit more unrealistic. However it is still worth a watch for fans of the first one.

A fun direct-to-video movie.
Much like the first one but more of the torture genre.
Cool,enjoyable movie!

It has gore and excitement but for a full thrill ride you will have to let go the stupid characters. Joy Ride 2 it's a decent and exciting DT DVD sequel.
