Steve ('Dawson's Crees's Kerr Smith) and Patrick (Lochlyn Munro) are two med school students heading for California in a car. They are now in a small town in Oregon, where they drop in a local bar just for a rest. Or beer maybe. And a happy chatting with the cheerleaders. And, you know, all these are signs of a trouble they are about to get into, as Steve is mistaken for a vicious killer because of a bad cop (who shoots himself by silly accident), and his daddy, too.
This is no 'Fugitive' and there is no Harrison Ford, but the film is tightly made and never stops. Surprisingly, the two leads are very good as the two kids on the edge, so other supports, and the director Richard Gale is surely a talented one, who can use the country locations very effectively.
The story is pretty conventional, and you don't take any of the events seriously, but as a thriller it is above average. A good one for your midnight viewing, or the fans of the stars.
