    At the crossroads of Duel and The Hitcher, we have Joy Ride, in which brothers played by Paul Walker and Steve Zhan piss off the wrong trucker who comes after them (and their love interest) with every psychotic impulse he's got. It's derivative - it's not exactly the car from Vanishing Point, but it might as well be - I have to stress that I'm pretty car blind, so you tell me), but not without its small pleasures. There's some directorial flare at times, and when it's tense, it's good and tense. However, the monster's motivations are at once one-dimensional and a bit haphazard, and my attention strayed as we sprang off one resolution into another complication. The tacked-on third act will make you ask questions as to Rusty Nail's powers that just can't be answered, so better to just set your brain to the OFF position at that point. I see they made a whole (barely connected) trilogy out of this, well good for them, but it's the end of the road for me. 3 years 5 months ago

    a forgettable, predictable and uninspired thriller with dull stereotypical characters and twists you see coming from miles away (no pun intended). 8 years 10 months ago
