Not a Lambert movie
30 August 2001 | by Jonathan HornerSee all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Christopher Lambert and I've wanted to see this movie for some time, I finally got the chance to see it this week.

When I first sat down to watch "The Road Killers" or "Road Flower" as it's known here in England, I wasn't to happy with it, Lambert looks out of place in this movie, it's not the kind of movie someone like Lambert should be in. As the movie "drove on" I started to enjoy it. I didn't expect this small low budget movie to be any good but it's a "time killer" all the same.

Craig Sheffer plays the eerie mentally-retarded psychopath whose after Lambert and his family when Sheffer kills Lambert's best friend, in a road rage incident. Sheffer is also accompanied with a gang of punks who drive around with him terrorizing everything and everyone. Sheffer plays Cliff, one f***** up son of a bitch, psychopath.

Not a bad movie but if your a Lambert fan there's better Lambert movies out there.
