Critic Reviews for The Road Killers
Audience Reviews for The Road Killers
A story long on plot holes and short on entertainment value. Lackluster performances by actors with decent talent. Two families on a road trip cross paths with mentally deficient brothers and mayhem follows. Not a good thing to say about this one.
82% "It's a flower. It's lost, should I pick it?"-Rich (Joseph Gordon-Levitt Kudos to casting director Terry Lieblin. Sometimes all you need is a talented cast.
The Road Killers is a rather tame and routine road actioner about two sets of family comprised of father (Christopher Lambert), his wife and daughter and then second father (Christopher McDonald) and son (a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who have a run in with a group of young criminals comprised of Craig Sheffer, David Arquette, a young Josh Brolin, and Adrienne Shelly (the woman who would eventually write and direct the film Waitress and be brutally murdered by some pathetic thug). When someone in the clan dies at the hands of the criminals, they set out to capture the rest of the family. Thinking the lead father, Lambert, is dead, they torment the family and kill anyone else who gets in their way until Lambert comes to half-heatedly rescue everyone. There's nothing really excited about this film other than Brolin's performance. Everyone is rather mild and the climactic ending comes off as comical moreso than awesome. Not too terribly bad of a movie, but this is definitely early 90's movie that Showtime would probably air during a dead hour.
