Storyline

Smith, a mob informer hiding out with the Witness Protection Program, decides to make a break for it and hide out in the Arizona desert. The Feds catch up with him and rescue him just before a group of hitmen can manage to silence him for good. In the course of getting Smith away from the mafia thugs, the pair of agents assigned to protect him turn onto an abandoned stretch of highway nicknamed 'Route 666' after the mysterious death of a prison chain gang. As the three continue on their way, they soon discover just what happened to the chain gang, and how the highway earned its name. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

There actually was a route 666. US Highway 666 ran from Gallup, New Mexico, to Cortez, Colorado, the gateway to Mesa Verde NP. Most of the route crossed the Navajo reservation and passes Ship Rock and near Four Corners, the only point in the US common to four states. The road itself still exists but has been renumbered by the New Mexico Department of Transportation because of superstitions about the number 666. See more »

Goofs

When the guys are waiting at the desert rest stop, the car door is closed on the agent's right hand, severing two fingers that fall to the ground. In a subsequent shot, his hand is visible with all fingers intact. See more »

Not Worth the Effort...
16 September 2003 | by (www.nixflix.com) – See all my reviews

...to spend a paragraph talking about, that is. But what is curious about the movie, which is quite awful even by the widest margins of quality, is why the director insists on shooting the action sequences as if he was re-making Spielberg's SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. The effect doesn't make the movie any better, simply because its action scenes are just, well, terrible.

And then prisoners turned ghosts appears and more foolishness happens. Then there are the characters whose only reason to exist is to get in the hero's way.

Oy.
