A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.
The story focuses on a man who suffers "anesthetic awareness" and finds himself awake and aware, but paralyzed, during heart surgery. His mother must wrestle with her own demons as a drama unfolds around them, while trying to unfold the story hidden behind her son's young wife.
Jake Vig (Burns) is a consummate grifter about to pull his biggest con yet, one set to avenge his friend's murder. But his last scam backfired, leaving him indebted to a mob boss (Hoffman) and his enforcer.
Since the hit-and-run murder of his wife five years ago, Rennie Cray has crisscrossed America in his souped-up, stripped-down '68 Plymouth Barracuda, pursuing her killer. The man he seeks in a high-speed, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse is James Fargo, a merciless, wheelchair-bound pyschopath. Through a series of mechanical innovations, Fargo has turned his rampaging '72 Cadillac Eldorado into a monstrous extension of his own twisted body and mind. Now, their deadly battle of wits and wills is about to move into overdrive. And caught in their headlights is a tormented beauty who unwittingly holds the key to their ultimate showdown. Written by

Flipped shot: Right before you see that the El Dorado has been chained up to drag Boone's car down the road, we get a quick glimpse of the front of the Cadillac. The right headlight is supposed to be burned our (or broken) but it is working again and the license plat is reversed. See more »
I just saw Highwaymen here in Texas, and let me tell you all, this movie is worth the ticket. The movie is quite different than any other movie I have seen, except for Wheels of Terror, which has basically the same plot as this one instead the car was the one doing the killings.
This movie grabs your attention from the get-go and does not let you come back down from the adrenaline ride you are witnessing. This movie is very good, and I recommend it to anyone who likes suspense/thrillers to watch it if you get the chance.
Jim Caviezel and Rhona Mitra are spectacular in their roles in this film. The basic plot of the movie is that Jim Caviezel's character's wife gets struck down by the killer who drives a Cadillac El Dorado and goes around major highways killing women with his car. I dont want to give away too much but this movie is worth every penny. Definitely buying it on DVD as soon as it comes out. Too bad it was only released in Texas and Louisiana. I give it 5 stars, since it has all the elements of a great movie.
