A white man stranded on the side of the road. A black man speeding by in an SUV. An act of kindness with fatal repercussions. A mysterious backpack. And a twist. Two strangers, harboring dark secrets and deceitful motives, learn how much can change in just thirty miles. 30 Miles follows two men of different race & background on a dramatic pressure-cooker trip.

As the men reveal intimate details of their pasts, guards are let down and emotions are left unchecked. But as day turns to night, and in a desert that buries all secrets, it becomes apparent that this is no random journey down the highway. 3 Written by Anonymous

Pretty good
17 May 2007 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Was there uneven acting? Absolutely! Was it believable in every twist and turn of the dialog? Not really. Yet, this movie is a prime example of the sum being bigger than it's parts. Even if the acting is at times waaay overwrought, and the changes in the mood of the conversation occasionally seemed artificial, it still worked for three reasons: 1) The characters, even if not totally believable, were interesting 2) you couldn't predict where the movie was going, and 3) it never got pretentious. If you can handle the movie's shortcomings, ie disregard some of overacting, this movie is, with what very little it actually has beyond a GREAT concept and story, and mediocre execution, immensely entertaining, and ultimately works because at least some of the gripes that you might have underway, makes sense at the end. Had the acting been better, and some of the more outrageous turns in the conversation been cut or altered, this movie could have been a masterpiece, but as it is, still ends up being more than worth seeing.
