Recently I watched “The Hitcher“. This film had some potential, but it totally blew it. It was interesting to see it now, because it reminded me so much of “Death Proof” which I saw just a few days ago, and which has a somewhat similar theme to it.
I think that Sean Bean did very well as a maniac. He was exactly the type of the killer I like seeing in this type of films. Sophia Bush provided quality female part. And the rest of the guys weren’t all that bad. However, the person who did blood control for this film was completely out of touch. There was too much blood in a places where none was needed, and there wasn’t enough where it was needed the most. A huge minus here, which sorts of ruins the movie, considering that it was mostly supposed to be about blood. It was also supposed to be about roads, and it did have a few car chases and crashes. Nothing special here though.
Overall, a 6 out of 10. Watch it on a boring Saturday, if you have nothing else to do.
