Since the hit-and-run murder of his wife five years ago, Rennie Cray has crisscrossed America in his souped-up, stripped-down '68 Plymouth Barracuda, pursuing her killer. The man he seeks in a high-speed, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse is James Fargo, a merciless, wheelchair-bound pyschopath. Through a series of mechanical innovations, Fargo has turned his rampaging '72 Cadillac Eldorado into a monstrous extension of his own twisted body and mind. Now, their deadly battle of wits and wills is about to move into overdrive. And caught in their headlights is a tormented beauty who unwittingly holds the key to their ultimate showdown.Written by

Rennie Cray (Jim Caviezel) drives a 1968 Plymouth Barracuda with the 426 Hemi Package. This extremely rare "race prepped" car uses a 426 cubic inch Hemi V8, paired with lightweight front bumpers and fenders. The car also omitted things such as sound deadening and rear seats to keep the weight down. A sticker reading "Accelerated Time Trials Only" was placed on the car. A mere 50 were made in 1968.

As the car flips at the climax of the movie, the left rear wheel entirely comes off the axle, yet, when the car finally settles back onto the ground, the wheel is back on. See more »
I just saw Highwaymen here in Texas, and let me tell you all, this movie is worth the ticket. The movie is quite different than any other movie I have seen, except for Wheels of Terror, which has basically the same plot as this one instead the car was the one doing the killings.
This movie grabs your attention from the get-go and does not let you come back down from the adrenaline ride you are witnessing. This movie is very good, and I recommend it to anyone who likes suspense/thrillers to watch it if you get the chance.
Jim Caviezel and Rhona Mitra are spectacular in their roles in this film. The basic plot of the movie is that Jim Caviezel's character's wife gets struck down by the killer who drives a Cadillac El Dorado and goes around major highways killing women with his car. I dont want to give away too much but this movie is worth every penny. Definitely buying it on DVD as soon as it comes out. Too bad it was only released in Texas and Louisiana. I give it 5 stars, since it has all the elements of a great movie.
