Possibly the only people who saw this movie are the ones who posted user comments, which is too bad. I wouldnt say it was one of the best movies ever made, and I wouldnt call it a piece of c**p either. This movie seemed to be made for people who appreciate second banana actors, and it was done pretty well in my opinion. Anyone who has stayed up late at night watching cable should be familiar with Eric and Lance. Lance is one of my favorite actors, and this was one of those movies that stand out in my mind when I think of his work. The ending was great. I dont want to give anything away, but...that pretty much made the movie for me. I think if this movie went mainstream with bigger named actors...like..I dont know, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, this would have been a hit. Instead, its doomed to be one of those movies that you see when you want to see something else, and its too bad, because as it is, it should be one that you want to watch. After checking for DVD availability for over a year now, I've come to the conclusion that this movie will never get a fair chance. Thats too bad, because its a good movie, and most people wont even know it was ever made.

I'd have to say that Switchback could have been great, instead its good enough. Danny Glover was great, and I think he played his character perfectly. Afterall...if they had chosen someone else to play his part, and had them play it like every other serial killer, then it wouldnt have been that hard for the FBI to find him now would it? Leto and the Sheriff..everyone really except Quaid did a good job. Quaid needed to be a little more passionate..avenging..afterall..he had every reason to be p***ed, but they way he played his character didnt make that much sense. Mr. Sensitive FBI guy shouldnt have had the balls to be a rogue FBI agent seeking revenge, but he did...it seemed inconsistent with his character. Someone should have kicked him in the ass to get his blood flowing or something. Aside from some plot holes to mislead the audience, I'd say this movie is good enough to suggest to other people. I gave it a 7.
