During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.
Since the hit-and-run murder of his wife five years ago, Rennie Cray has crisscrossed America in his souped-up, stripped-down '68 Plymouth Barracuda, pursuing her killer. The man he seeks in a high-speed, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse is James Fargo, a merciless, wheelchair-bound pyschopath. Through a series of mechanical innovations, Fargo has turned his rampaging '72 Cadillac Eldorado into a monstrous extension of his own twisted body and mind. Now, their deadly battle of wits and wills is about to move into overdrive. And caught in their headlights is a tormented beauty who unwittingly holds the key to their ultimate showdown. Written by

Test screening cut ran 2 hours 5 mins approx but was edited down to a brisk run time of 1 hour 20 mins for pacing. Exorcised, among other things were scenes of Cray and his wife at the beginning, Fargo as an able bodied man committing murders, Cray in prison, a subplot of Macklin struggling with his superiors over his investigation and more scenes of molly and Clay in the junk yard.

Flipped shot: Right before you see that the El Dorado has been chained up to drag Boone's car down the road, we get a quick glimpse of the front of the Cadillac. The right headlight is supposed to be burned our (or broken) but it is working again and the license plat is reversed. See more »
I just saw Highwaymen here in Texas, and let me tell you all, this movie is worth the ticket. The movie is quite different than any other movie I have seen, except for Wheels of Terror, which has basically the same plot as this one instead the car was the one doing the killings.
This movie grabs your attention from the get-go and does not let you come back down from the adrenaline ride you are witnessing. This movie is very good, and I recommend it to anyone who likes suspense/thrillers to watch it if you get the chance.
Jim Caviezel and Rhona Mitra are spectacular in their roles in this film. The basic plot of the movie is that Jim Caviezel's character's wife gets struck down by the killer who drives a Cadillac El Dorado and goes around major highways killing women with his car. I dont want to give away too much but this movie is worth every penny. Definitely buying it on DVD as soon as it comes out. Too bad it was only released in Texas and Louisiana. I give it 5 stars, since it has all the elements of a great movie.
