“Sloppy cinematic execution makes this one a wreck of a movie.”
One thing I like the most while watching Hollywood movie is the movie's runtime. Its short and sweet that sometimes you don't even realize if the movie is crappy. One thing I hate watching these English movies in local theatres is the forced interval, which absolutely breaks the momentum, though wrecker didnt have such problems because it was anyways not gripping. So I needed that interval for obvious reasons.
So what is wrecker? Who is wrecker? I don't know the answers even after watching the movie. Its about a random phycho guy who drives this huge truck and follows and scares the shit out of the people in the highway called death valley. He mainly targets women, at least as far as the movie is concerned. So basically, throughout the movie he just follows a fancy car with two women and eventually kills one person and packs her into the boot.
The movie was neither gripping or thrilling. And the movie description had this genre as horror. Oh please. I slept through the movie and woke up when ever the damn phycho honked on screen. Technically too the film was not good enough to create some tension or interest. The performances by the girls was pretty decent and we never get to see the phycho, so cant judge his talent.
So overall, wrecker is an ok film which is neither too good or just good. There are way better phycho films from the west so we can easily give this film a miss.
