Felt a lot like a great thriller from Hitchcock.

This was released in an era where horrors and thrillers were becoming landmarks and where the older generation of cinema was slowly changing to the modern generation and as I was watching The Hitcher it did bring back memories of the older classic thrillers but also at the same time, was the start of something new and became the dawning of a new era. There were many moments that did give me chills... read more

A good movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to watch it. Honestly, I'm not usually a big fan of those cheesy 80's action movies. Some of them are allright but most of them are rather average. However, I have definitely a weak spot for this one. First of all, there was the mighty Rutger Hauer in all his greatness and only for his performance, you ought to yourself to chec... read more

Because of a lucky fluke, the driver manages to escape the charismatic mur ... (more)

"4.4. (DVD) Rutger Hauer kujeilee moottoritiellä ja ampuu helikopterin alas käsiaseella painostavatunnelmaiseksi loihditussa jännärissä, jonka kuvakerronta ja hahmojen kehitys ovat harkittua. Kliseiden välistä onnistutaan pitkälti puikkelehtimaan."

"Interrogation Sergeant: What's your name? Come on. What's your name? Do you have a name? Do you have a police record? Where are you from? John Ryder: Disneyland.

"7.4 Hauer minimaraton #5 Ilman Haueria tässä ei ole oikeastaan mitään, mikä tekisi tästä edes jollain tapaa muistettavan. Hän ilmestyy aina jostain nurkan takaa sillointällöin päähenkilölle tekemään koiruuksia. Loistava mies kertakaikkiaan."

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"A highly unimaginative slasher that keeps the tension going with a massacre about every 15 minutes. - Variety Staff, Variety Mr. Hauer, who has reportedly vowed not to play any more villains or crackpots, is probably making the right decision, if this is any measure of the sort of role that comes his way. - Janet Msslin, New York Times I would have admired it more if it had found the courage to acknowledge the real relationship it was portraying between Howell and Rutger, but no: It prefers "

"23.2. Voisi olla vain "ihan kiva" trilleri näyttävine maisemineen ja kasariestetiikkoineen, ellei Rutger Hauerin UPEA pahistulkinta kattaisi suurinta osaa filmin viehätyksestä. Sanat eivät riitä kuvaamaan, miten riemastuttavan umpipaha hahmo John Ryder on - hyvä kun en suunnilleen huutanut ääneen joka kerta kun tämä psykopaatti vain putkahti jostakin piinaamaan päähenkilöä! Hauerin läsnäolo pyörittää oikeastaan koko muutakin elokuvaa, mikä vuoroin tartuttaa hänen pirullise"
