AKA Joy Ride in the USBy a customer from Canterbury , 06 Oct 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]rented this film as the trailer looked good, despite the fact that it hasn?t done that well on reviews. all in all, both my partner and i enjoyed this film even though we both have different tastes in films.
the plot covers two brothers, fuller (steve zahn) and lewis (paul walker ? the fast and the furious) who whilst on a long distance car trip buy a cb radio and decide to play a prank on a trucker. however when the prank goes wrong they discover the trucker has found out who they are and is stalking them on their journey. their journey takes a turn for the worse when they pick up lewis?s love interest venna (leelee sobiesky ? deep impact) when the trucker steps up a gear and starts terrorising all three of them more aggressively.
after a slightly slow start where the ?prank? is played this film builds up to a good level of tension and maintains it throughout the film, and unlike many films you can?t always predict what will happen next, keeping you on the edge of the seat and really engrossed in the film. there is some gore in this film, but the films main emphasis is psychological and the unexpected twists that it has. the only real down side is that after all the effort that has been made to keep you engrossed in the film, the ending was too predictable so the writers let themselves down here. however i?m not going to say too much about the film, as this really is a film everyone should watch, and i?ve no interest in spoiling a minute of it for any of you.
so if your into action, horror, thriller or mysteries, you will probably also enjoy this film

One for the roadBy The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 04 Mar 2013Watchable thriller based on killer psychotic lorrydriver. Low budget , not a classic, CB radio storylines and some similarities with Duel. .
really good filmBy cheesekake (1498 reviews) from uk , 22 Jul 2012good film, with lots of thrilling bits. Good storyline, some funny bits too, but all round good film.
defo worth watching
Inferior Duel type storyBy a customer from Surrey , 18 Aug 2011Had no sympathy for any of the characters - the bully brother should have been dispatched under the wheels of the truck pronto!
Comparisons with Duel inevitable - that was a much more subtle and menacing film not least because the truck driver was never revealed unlike in this story.
Watch it to pass a couple of hours but it ain't no masterpiece.
kept me glued to my seatBy a customer , 10 Jun 2011Really enjoyed this thriller, it kept me glued to my seat.
The story line was very good and shows how things can turn from a joke in to something so wrong.
Thought the acting from the main charaters was very good.
Road Kill.By fraufanny (37 reviews) from Hornchurch.Essex. , 30 Mar 2010Two jokers play a prank on a trucker with the CB radio that then goes wrong, the trucker then goes after his revenge. A good comedy thriller that had me rooting for the trucker.
