It started as a joke. Now the joke is on them.
Good acting, some strong suspense scenes, conversations via CB Radio. The emergence of another figure evil, this trucker's Rusty Nail.
Platitudinous character, a few dead spots that cause temporary boredom.
Marching in the footsteps of ' The Hitcher ' (1986), ' Joy Ride ' continues dynamic delivery of "horror film" road, highlighting the danger of vehicles especially when driven by relentless maniacs. In the role of evil is a crazy road with murderous tendencies. The role of victims are 3 young traveling on u.s. Highway making parallel pranks over the CB Radio in their car in truckers. But when she makes a nasty prank on one of them under the pseudonym Rusty Nail, will experience a nightmarish adventure. The Rusty Nail proves psychopath and the hunts with his truck without mood to show mercy for the farce that did.
For the character of Rusty Nail in ' Joy Ride ' the audition did Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction, The Batterfly Effect) and Eric Roberts (The Dark Night, The Expendables).
All this may sound mundane, and the truth is that the "Joy Ride" does not claim Prize among juvenile thriller. Regarded as a "horror movie" road gives a special place inside the pile of newer horror films but his points and takes them from other positive elements. Interpretations for example is quite good for youthful thriller. The Director shows robust and agony reaches heights in many ingenious scenes. The figure of the Rusty Nail is more acoustic than Visual. This of course is not negative since the radio threat has the grace of rousing the audience pleasing game to imagining the form of manic as the exits at that time. However when the Rusty Nail decides to use his truck becomes boss of asphalt intensifying the suspense of the beholder. Ultimately the "Joy Ride" is a good suggestion for friends of thriller/horror. Copes with the "professionalism and seriousness to make sympathetic without being a masterpiece.
- Uprooting the jaw of a wretch of the trucker.
- The agonizing scene that the car of young has implanted in a tree when the Rusty Nail slowly crushes them with his truck.
- The suspenseful finale where the Rusty Nail's truck is driven by momentum in a trapped and wounded new protagonists in advance.
