Hmmm...I'm at a bit of a loss for words at the moment. The first thing I would like to say is that this is the first movie ever to cause me to experience severe chest pains. (Yes...I AM being serious and I'm not saying that simply for the sake of attempting humor.)
This movie is so idiotic, my first recommendation would be for you to never, ever view it. With that said, if you must torture yourself, I would recommend that you remove from the room anything which might be thrown at your TV screen in a bout of frustration.
"Destination Vegas" is about a female attorney whose car breaks down in the middle of nowhere (as if anyone's car ever breaks down anywhere else in a movie.) Anyway, she gets picked up by a creepy guy in a pickup truck. He has a magic shotgun inside the cab of his vehicle. Well, the attorney grabs the magic shotgun and makes the guy stop the truck and get out. Blah blah blah...yada yada yada.
Let's get to the "good" stuff. A couple of hitmen are on the trail of the attorney and try and try and try to kill her. She tries and tries and tries to kill them with her magic shotgun. OK...why do I keep calling it a "magic" shotgun? Because at no time during the film does it ever run out of shells even though it is never reloaded. Also, it can never, ever hit any target no matter how close it is. Even a hack like me could do some damage with a shotgun pointed at a car only ten feet behind me. Somehow, the hapless attorney fires off a dozen or so shots without hitting a darn thing.
The movie seems to drag on forever...and ever...and ever. Almost the entire film takes place on some obscure road which goes from southern California to Las Vegas. The only people who travel this road are people who are closely connected to the story. If you're looking for some exciting action once the attorney gets to Vegas, you are going to be severely disappointed. Only the last five or so minutes actually takes place in Vegas. They show a few fleeting glimpses of downtown Vegas and that's it.
Why are there hitmen after the attorney? Who cares! Why was this movie ever made? Who knows?!! Please...just stay away! You'll thank me for it! 1/10
