Only two good things about this movie
17 September 2001 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

If it weren't for Caspar Van Dien's two big blue eyes, there would be absolutely nothing worth seeing in this movie.

Van Dien plays Jim, a limo driver who rescues a pretty young woman, Sonia, from the angry boyfriend she's just broken up with, and offers her a ride home in his non-limo personal car.

Out on the freeway, he carelessly cuts in front of a big black pick-up truck, causing the truck to spin out. Despite the heavy traffic, no one is hurt. Jim drives on. But soon the truck comes roaring up behind them, and from there the movie is basically one long nearly non-stop car chase mixed with some nitwit dialog.

Throughout the movie, many dozens of other drivers are forced to swerve to avoid being killed by this car chase. Yet evidently not one of them has a cell phone to call the police. (Jim had a cell phone, but it was "new," he said, explaining why it wasn't working.)

Not to mention -- where are the police or even traffic-report helicopters to pick up on this extended car chase?

So, what do we have in "Road Rage"? We have a car chase, some brainless dialog, and zero suspense.

Oh -- and Caspar Van Dien's very big blue eyes.
