I had to discuss one of my favorite movies: Freeway. I was never a big fan of Reese Witherspoon, the lead actress, but I knew I had to do a Freeway review after seeing it.
Freeway is about an illiterate girl who is fleeing from being put in foster care. She gets picked up after the car she stole breaks down, and the person who picked her up happens to be a serial killer. The serial killer is played by Kiefer Sutherland, who is genuinely creepy, and I have suspected that he may be a serial killer in real life, so he fits the part perfect. The main character of Freeway, as mentioned, is played by Reese Witherspoon, who looks too old for the age of the character she plays.
As you read this Freeway review, you may ask yourself: so what makes this movie any good? The answer is that the theme of this movie hovers around sex and violence. The main character, Vanessa, was raped by her stepfather, later tries to get corpse-raped by the serial killer, and then tries to get raped by a character played by Brittany Murphy while in lock-up. Yes, Brittany Murphy is in this movie, although you it is hard to tell it’s her at first. Vanessa is involved in murdering a woman and cutting a man with a handmade knife to escape, where she then tries to find her grandma.
This movie is a lot of fun, but it’s not for everyone. Many people get shot or killed in this movie. That being said, it is an exciting film with several twists and turns that make it worth seeing. Give it a shot.
