The highway to hell runs straight through a college campus in this compelling thriller about a killer truck. After helping a pretty co-ed out of a nasty domestic situation, Jim Travis gives the girl a lift home. But once on the road, the situation takes a white-knuckle twist as Jim gets into a frightening duel with a crazy truck driver. Written by
During the first chase scene on the freeway, the Dodge is at different distances from the Lincoln between shots. A very noticeable time is when Sonia says "Jim, he's gonna hit us." The truck is only a few meters from the back of the car, then is cuts to the outside shot and the Dodge is 15-20 meters back, despite Jim actually being on the brakes. See more »

Though the title "Road Rage" seemed promising, I must confess I couldn't keep watching this movie...it was like witnessing an awkward tragedy, I had to turn away.
When the chase scene first starts, the dialogue between the guy and girl in the car is ludicrous, and their almost frivolous emotions don't match the situation. If they were truly being followed by someone like that they wouldn't be having that conversation, the driver wouldn't care if she smoked in the car, and he certainly wouldn't go after him once it stopped.
The car chase scenes were unbelievable, in real life a 5 car pile-up would have occurred immediately, everyone knows you can't get around other drivers in rush hour, even if your life depended on it, never mind evading accidents on the freeway for long periods of time. Explosions don't happen quite so easily either.
The cops probably wouldn't have drawn guns as the car slid into their parking lot, and probably would have tried to be a bit more helpful since the whole thing was a threat to public safety.
The "relationship" which develops between them is unbelievable. There is no chemistry, it is not plausible she would invite him back to her house after what happened--since he chose to go after the truck after it stopped chasing them. The cutesy dialogue between them has no weight, just like the rest of the movie. It's proof that making a movie is very complex, just throwing in a few successful elements from other movies doesn't necessarily work.
