While traveling from Green Lawn, California, to meet his wife and son in Red Ridge, Nevada, the driver Jeremy Stanton gets lost in a secondary road through the desert following an old edition of the Road-Aid Travel Guide maps. He calls the Road-Aid operator Judy, who tries to give directions to her client. Meanwhile, the police are chasing the criminals that have committed a bank heist in California. When Jeremy's Mercedes Benz runs out of gas, he finds an isolated gas station in the middle of nowhere that accepts cash-only. When Jeremy opens the truck of his car, he brings out a bag full of money, disclosing the reason for his road-trip. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Really entertaining
29 June 2007 | by tjpmkpSee all my reviews

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Some of the dialog was a bit contrived, but so what? It was still a wild ride with unexpected moments thrown in throughout. I thought Dean Cain did a good job.

This movie is like a poor man's Duel (which I consider a compliment.) Duel, I believe was Steven Spielberg's directorial debut as this is for Darren Lempke. He has real talent. He is very good at building up suspense. I also liked the way it ended -- it wasn't a cop-out. It had good camera work and everything made sense at the end, which often does not in these types of movies. It was a fun way to spend 90 minutes. P.S. I don't have a clue as to why a reviewer thought this movie was a sci-fi picture. It bears absolutely no resemblance to one.
