5.0 out of 5 stars A Better, Madder, Max July 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I do not write movie reviews. This movie silently surfaced while storm clouds gathered around the anticipated opening of Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ, and I went to see it to see Caviezel's last "pre-Jesus" film role. I'm glad I did, so don't let the previous review throw you off. This is an intelligent movie: Cavievel plays a decent man who is at the end of his sanity - convinced that he saw his wife murdered, sent to prison for an accident (or was it?) which leaves him wondering if he is the reason for the highwayman's coast to coast automotive killing spree, which is seen by the authorities as simply unrelated traffic fatalities. Until he discovers the highwayman has finally made the mistake of leaving a survivor - who is the witness (and bait) he needs. The film borrows elements from "The Car", "Christine", "Hannibal" and, of course, "Mad Max". With Cavievel's character driving a muscled-up vintage Plymouth Duster, and the imminent release of "The Passion", I kept thinking I would see Gibson in this movie with a walk-on role, or at least see his name somewhere in the credits. It's that good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highwaymen is a fun entertaining movie! Sept. 4 2004
By Porfie Medina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I have to say Highwaymen was a good movie. It is not a really good movie, but it is a good entertaining one. From some of the reviews I was expecting this to be horrible, but it was not as bad as many would like you to believe. This movie is about a psycho driver who kills a mans wife in a hit and run. The killer ends up killing other women. The cops can not track this guy because they are too lazy to track him from state to state and have no solid proof. Ray (James Caviezel) then decides to take matters in his own hands and track this guy down himself. This movie has some action scenes that will have you on the edge of your seat, unfortunatly their are only a few scenes like that. What did make this movie good was the great performance by Jim Caviezel(who played Jesus Christ in Passion of The Christ) who always seems to give such a good performance in all his acting. I recommend Highwaymen as a fun entertaining movie in the tradition of Joyride, and Duel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and Miss Aug. 28 2004
By tmp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Some reviewers are making like this is the worst movie in the world; it's no "Duel" but it's not "Wheels of Terror", either. Jim Caviezel criss-crosses the United States tracking Colm Feore,who manages to visibly shred the scenery even behind the tinted windows of his Avacado green Eldorado of death. Along the way, he runs into (oooh, bad choice of words) Rhona Mitra, the only survivor of Colm's latest rampage. While some of the plot is pretty unbelievable (I think even the police in podunk would eventually put it together that all these young women were killed by a car that looks like a guacamole and chrome-covered parade float; hitting a body with a car does not result in blood-stains that can be taken care of at a car wash, it results in major body damage and smashed glass; even a car as heavy as a '72 Eldorado will not cause another car to flip up into the air like hitting a trash can), there are a lot of parts of this movie that are really uncomfortable to sit through- in a good, suspensful way.

Solid suspense, decent performances, evil Cadillacs and a good guy in a souped-up Barracuda. What more do you want?

5.0 out of 5 stars Creeeeepy!!!!! Sept. 7 2004
By E. A Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
O.K. I don't know if it was because I'm a woman, I was watching it late at night, or simply the suspense and music, but this movie wasn't only scary, but it gave me the absolute creeps. I mean we're talking a serious case of the heeby-jeebies here! I found myself so freaked out that I had to literally watch the movie in segments. After watching a little bit, I had to shut it off and go back and continue watching it later. I've watched my share of scary movies, but this one had a unique effect on me. Oh, and as for the earlier Mad Max reference, I failed to see the resemblence which is a good thing because I detest Mad Max. Give this movie a try if you like to be scared, but leave the lights on.....or better yet...watch it during the day....with a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great thriller Sept. 20 2004
By Brian Reaves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie is incredible. Is it believable? Not really, but it's a solid 90 minutes of entertainment. And the score of this movie is one of best I've heard in a long time. The music is haunting and just enough to pull you in. It's a shame they don't sell it. The actors are good, but Jim does the most convincing job as a haunted man out to find his wife's killer. Rhona is incredible too as the woman with a past that will never let her rest. This won't win any oscars, but it's worth the time and money. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Breakneck pacing keeps this study of revenge alive Oct. 27 2004
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
HIGHWAYMAN works. The story is rather straightforward but has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing while clinging to the edge of your seat. For an action movie is is up there with the best of them, thanks to smart director Robert Harmon.

The film opens somewhere on the plains of America where a beautiful woman is buying fruit from a lonely roadside vendor: her husband Rennie (Jim Caviezel) watches her with adoring eyes from a lonely motel balcony. But out of the dust of the highway appears a one headlight dirty 1972 Cadillac El Dorado and in seconds Rennie's wife lies dead in the street.

Flash forward 5 years and Rennie has given up his life as a doctor, has apparently been hunting down his wife's murderer, discovering that the murderer is a bizarre serial killer named Fargo (Colm Feore), a psychopath who is addicted to killing young women by hit and run and suffers the loss of limbs now replaced with robotic extensions.

Rennie knows the MO of Fargo and when another woman becomes a victim of the serial killer, Rennie follows the investigation with a Traffic inspector (Frankie Faison): there were two women in the destroyed car - Alex (Andrea Roth) who is killed and Molly (Rhona Mitra) who survives. Rennie's drive for revenge creates a bond with Molly and between the two of them the wild car chases and ballistics pummel to the terrifying end of the film.

No, the story is not unique, but it has enough of a twist on a plot line to keep suspense afloat. The photography is on target and the music of Mark Isham (as usual) enhances the tension. A good movie, not a great movie, but one that is fairly well polished in the terror genre. Grady Harp October 2004
