Sonia is having a bad day when first she gets in a fight with her ex-boyfriend, then catches a ride with a limo driver who might need driving lessons. When the limo driver enrages another driver the two find themselves in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse.
Casper Van Dien (Jim), Danielle Brett (Sonia), Joseph Griffin (Bo), Chuck Byrn (Larry), James Millington (Officer Davis), James Binkley (Cop), Wayne Lam (Cashier), Catherine Oxenberg (Ranger).
Road Rage starts off looking pretty good. The plot it a bit slow to start but once Jim and Sonia are being chased things get quite a bit better as we are led to believe the pursuer has almost magical abilities. Once we find out who is really driving the chase vehicle Road Rage quickly turns into more of a Road Drama. From there the film is fairly predictable and finally ends with barely a burp from the exhaust.
Acting is okay with Van Dien and Brett doing okay considering the somewhat lame lines they were dealt. The remainder of the supporting cast was fairly incidental and we didn’t get enough of any of them to really form a decent opinion.
Camera work was mediocre and felt like the easy road was taken on most shots. Sets and backgrounds were mostly natural and good. Dialogue, as mentioned, was lacking a bit for depth while sound and soundtrack were okay.
Overall Road Rage is a decent entry level Action & Adventure flick with a substantial amount of drama thrown in for good measure. Thrill seekers will be disappointed with this one while those new to the genre may enjoy it.
With some foul language and violence this should be fine for older teens and above.
Road Rage is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 2 out of 5
