The Most Terrifying Thing I Have Ever Seen
29 August 2001 | by (Wigan, England) – See all my reviews

Yes, you read the title right. As a massive Terminator fan, I wanted to check this out as it was scripted by Tedi Safarian, who is the man (or one of them) behind the script for T3. This movie is so bad it has dented all of my expectations for the new Terminator movie as the story lacks a complete sense of direction.

Basically, we are introduced to two families driving through the desert. A bunch of psychos follow them and drive past them at breakneck speeds, shortly before taking them hostage. Why? Sure they are crazy but it still doesn't make any sense at all!

The entire film has the atmosphere of those god awful tv movies (take Motorcycle Gang for example) and despite a relatively well-known cast, fails to deliver on every level. In the end you find yourself rooting for the bad guys as Christopher Lambert's acting is just terrible, not to mention the look on his face.

However, credit is due where credit is due. The lead 'Road Killer' Cliff is played with genuine menace by Craig Sheffer as is David Arquettes character of Bobby.

Good characters still ain't enough though to salvage this mess of a film and to be perfectly honest, you are better spending 100 minutes of your life cutting grass with a pair of scissors.

All in all, The Road Killers (or Roadflower as it is known in the UK) wins itself a meagre 3 out of 10.
