A thirty something man who lives in a suburb just outside of Portland says goodbye to his beautiful and loving wife and heads into town. There he unintentionally provokes the wrath of a mysterious motorcyclist. The confrontation between the two, sets in motion a day long battle. Beginning in the form of harmless taunts then quickly escalating into something more serious and then into something unimaginable. Written by
Rage sets out to be a remake of Steven Spielberg's all-time classic Duel, very lofty ambitions indeed.
The first problem is the makers of Rage did not have the money or skills to make a road movie. So we have a guy on a bike and a guy in a car navigating the roads of Portland. Then the camera shakes as the bike 'hits' the car, just one example of many laughably poor scenes.
As a road movie is out then Rage becomes a low-budget and pretty pointless horror movie, as a remake of Duel it falls way, way short of the mark.
If you want to see a great revenge style movie then watch Duel, if you want to watch something nowhere near as good with less style and pointless killing then watch this.
