Good performance by Stacy Keach
25 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have watched this film a few times and was impressed by Keach's solid performance as Claude Sams. The film is based on the true story of Claude's son Paul having been killed by a renegade trucker while changing a tyre on the highway. I found it pulled at my heartstrings in a compelling way.

The part of the film where Claude extracts his revenge on the highway is entertaining but might be a little contrived. This film has had some bad reviews so I wanted to balance it with a positive one.

The film largely belongs to Stacy Keach, the supporting actors' performances are of varying quality but on the whole I find it an entertaining and riveting film.
