Upset after reading a newspaper account of Fay's supposed death in Reno, psychopath Vince, more or less, trashes the restaurant and leaves by the front door. Looking from the inside of the restaurant, we see him walk by the front window and we can read the name of the restaurant Las Vegas Quality Cafe, painted on the window, which tells us where Vince currently is and we can figure out where he's going next. Howsoever, if you paint a restaurant sign on a window, you paint so it can be read from the outside looking in, not so it can be read from the inside looking out. See more »
As the fan of modern noirs which are often called Neo-Noirs I must say John Dahl knows how to make one. He is master of this genre. Good thing about him is that he focuses more on making movie entertaining rather than other aspects. Title in review is one of the example but IMDb users again have not done justice with another Neo-noir and rated it very low as usual.
Movie is a wholesome entertainment. Look and feel of the movie is fantastically dark. Putting the highway in the movie even made it best. Characters are well constructed and they all mean business and also are desperate. Some great twists and turns but if you see lot of suspense thrillers then probably you will guess them beforehand. But still that doesn't mean you will not enjoy the movie. This is sort of movie which will glue to your seat for whole time. Pace of movie is good and you will Not find a single boring moment in it.
I strongly recommend this movie to neo-noir lovers and also highway thriller lovers will equally enjoy it. So watch it.
