Joy Ride (2001)


“Candy Cane? Hey anybody know a Candy Cane?” – Rusty Nail

Number of Times Seen – 1 (25 April 2013)

Brief Synopsis – Three young people travel across the country and are stalked by a psychotic killer

My Take on it – Came across this movie viewing JJ Abrams list of credits on IMDB. I was shocked to hear that he wrote this movie. The first half of the movie which dealt more with two brothers trying to bond after not seeing each other for a long time was written and acted quite well. The second half which dealt with them being stalked by a crazy trucker, wasn’t done as well.

Paul Walker, Steve Zahn and Leelee Sobieski acted well and all three become likable. I also liked the fact that the psychotic trucker is only heard and not seen through most of the movie which added to the suspense.

Bottom Line – Enjoyed first half, second half was just too much. Not recommended for anymore who doesn’t enjoy the stalker thriller.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
