In the wake of the massive hit that was Jaws (1975), studios were foaming at the mouth to replicate its success. Of course, their idea was to take everything that they thought made Jaws a winner and put it in a different setting. Here’s a few that were cranked out by the dream machine: Jaws on Land (Grizzly), Micro-Jaws (Piranha), Jaws, Back to the Water (Orca), Jaws, Back to the Water Again, with Feeling (Jaws II) , and our flick du jour, the little engine that could, Jaws on Wheels – The Car (1977) .
In actuality, Steven Spielberg made Jaws on Wheels before he made Jaws, with the relentless cat and mousecapades of Duel (1971). However, this was 1977 and it was time for an upgrade. Released by Universal in May, The Car was (naturally) laughed off the screen by the critics, and why wouldn’t it be? A demonic vehicle terrorizing a »

Impressive visuals and Leone-style showdowns are no substitute for character development in Pablo Fendrik’s jungle western
Writer-director Pablo Fendrik’s “Mesopotamic western” is heavy on atmosphere, light on plot – a revenge narrative with an eco-friendly twist. Gael García Bernal is Kaí, a Pale Rider (think Charles Bronson meets Mowgli) who emerges from the Argentinian jungle to save Alice Braga’s kidnapped Vania after machete-wielding mercenaries pillage her home. At one with nature (the “manimal” analogy is overworked), Kía helps Vania to turn the tables on these beasts, climaxing in a cod-Leone showdown replete with mission bell sound effects and Straw Dogs-style homemade mantraps.
While the visuals are arresting and the locations haunting, Fendrik’s portentous fable lacks much in the way of credible character development – a viny romance between Kaí and Vania seems more a strategic addition than an organic thread. Some crunchy action adds blood but not meat. »
