Trivia

Hitcher 2 was mid-production during 9-11-2001. Actors flying from Los Angeles and Vancouver were unable to travel due to the tragedy. The ending, and numerous scenes were re-written, as a consequence. Mackenzie Gray's character of the Lieutenant is the only antagonist not killed-off in the final scene, due to the grounding of planes through-out North America during 9-11. The director cast him 10 years later in Joy Ride 2, where he finally met his demise. See more »

Goofs

The tanker truck assumed to be carrying gasoline is clearly missing the hazardous materials placards. These placards are legally required to be visibly posted on all four sides of any haz-mat container. See more »

Underrated
26 July 2006 | by Patron-89See all my reviews

When I first saw "The Hitcher 2: I've been Waiting" on SciFi I found it to be extremely underrated. I thought it was pretty entertaining and I enjoyed very much.. It was thrilling, action packed, & dramatic all mixed together. The elements in it were extremely good to say the least. Although the story was relatively the same as the first one, yet it makes up for that with a few shocking moments which conclude with a big showdown at the end.

Now to all who may be wondering if you should check it out well don't listen to all the negativity. I recommend you all give it a try and make your on decision. Either way I give The Hitcher 2: I've been Waiting ***1/2 stars out of five.
