Storyline

Set around a wife and husband on vacation in Morocco with the wife plotting to murder her husband with help from her lover. The plan goes terribly wrong when her lover and husband get into a terrible car accident on a remote desert road. They escape the multi-car pileup at a desert intersection and encounter the group of survivors, including a wanted smuggler, an undercover cop, a kidnapper, a baby and an unconscious Australian. They embark on a journey of deceit and revelation that culminates in a Tangiers souk. Written by lo_watson

Goofs

Saleh sabotages the Nissan Pathfinders engine to avoid Omar driving off without them by removing a spark plug. You can hear clearly that in fact its a diesel engine which does not use spark plugs.

Added note: While Pathfinders do come with diesel engines, this one clearly sounded to me like a standard internal combustion motor. When some of the characters switch to a Mercedes later in the movie, you can clearly hear the difference. I don't think this was a goof. See more »

RANDOM FILMS PART 7 Now, what can I say about Collision? Shall I mention it was originally called 'Intersections'? I'm sensing a theme here...

Should I talk about the fact that no-one can trust each other? Seriously, this is House Of Cards levels of deception...

I could prattle on about how there isn't a decent woman to be found in the movie (apart from right at the end)?

On the same topic, how about the underlying sexist message that females are only after one thing? (Clue: It start with M and rhymes with funny, though they're not spelt the same, unless you're dyslexic. )

There's a REALLY good car cra... Oh, you already guessed that by looking at the title. Silly me.

Er... The desert looks good at this time of year? Seriously folks, I'm struggling here. I've seen ALL this before... The backstabbing, the artificial tension, the stupid decisions, the frenetic last few minutes... Only, done much better.

Wondering why you've never heard of this film? Wonder no longer. 5/10
