Stop and Go Quality
18 October 2002 | by (The Hague, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is a truckload of great ideas bogged down in a morass of hokey execution. Production values are ok, the film quality is _great_, but the dialogue is stilted and camera work mundane. There is also very little plot. It also seems to be a showcase of actors who's careers have been or could have been. Rutger Hauer, Gabrielle Anwar, Joe Mantegna, Craig Sheffer, the little baldish tv director who used to play hitmen (including on the episode "Bushido" of Miami Vice).

PROS:

Concept: a Marilyn Manson type gothic (-ish) rocker has organized a concert in the sky, complete with mock executions and The Hitcher is your co-pilot. (But wait, a gang of _real_ satanists want to hijack the plane and crash it into an unknown town in Kansas... )

Monika Schnarre, who must be one of the most beautiful women on earth. I'd never heard of her, and she's already 30? Maybe it's just the razor sharp cheek bones, strong chin, the red hair and the fact that she's covered head to toe in black leather...

Gabrielle Anwar, who is hot although not quite up to her more youthful standard of Body Snatchers (1993 - what happened to _her_ career?).

Rutger Hauer seems to be having a good time reliving his Hitcher days.

CONS:

Hokey

Poor dialogue

No plot to really speak of

The actors start losing the spirit halfway through this unlikely mess, specially Gabrielle Anwar and Joe Mantegna.

Church of the Stull?

The movie has a distinctively Canadian feel to it.
