Good Story But Don't Let The Trailers Fool You

I watched this last week on February 23rd at the theaters. I am not sure why this was released here in Japan well before the rest of the World because Japan tends to be last in getting movies released.

It was a good story overall and I must say excellent cinematography. The film takes places in Johannesburg, South Africa and the film does an excellent job showing the ins and outs of the city.

Paul Walker does a great job playing Michael Woods. His role reminds me of his role in Running Scared as he seems to have a short fuse and quite foul-mouthed. Don't let the trailers of this movie fool you however. You see Paul Walker and car chases and might expect a Fast and the Furious type of flick. However this movie is more of a car adventure/drama than action/car chase movie. I can say however that most of the movie takes place in a car.

I liked this movie overall but it is not the type of movie that you rush out to see in the theaters. There aren't enough action sequences to get the theater effect. Wait for DVD.

motivational flaws

Michael Woods (Paul Walker) is on parole after being released from an American prison. He breaks parole to go to Johannesburg, South Africa to find his ex-wife Angie. He picks up the wrong rental car at the airport. He finds a phone and a gun. He is about to abandon the car at a junkyard when he gets a call from police detective Smith. Smith gives him an address to swap cars. Michael gets hopelessly lost and then he finds Rachel Shabangu bound in the back of the minivan.

Michael proclaims that "This is Crazy!" I feel the same way about the movie. It makes no sense why he would keep the woman prisoner. He should just let her go and clean up whatever fingerprints are on the car. Every move makes less sense. The character is an idiot and Paul Walker does not really play idiots well. I do mean idiot as in mentally deficient. There is nothing holding him to the situation. This is very manufactured which drains all tension from the drama and the action. It doesn't matter how well it's film or how exciting are the car chases. The character simply doesn't make sense.

An interesting premise that loses itself in the delivery

This was okay if somewhat bland "action thriller" Set entirely in Johannesburg, South Africa it follows Paul Walker (sigh) as he becomes the target of a massive police manhunt after picking up a rental car with a female whistle-blower locked in the trunk.

The film does an excellent job showing the ins and outs of the city, while slowly revealing the plot as it goes along, which was fine with me, I like figuring things out this way. The entire movie has been shot and takes place inside the rental car, its an interesting premise, along the lines of Colin Farrell's "Phone Booth" unfortunately Vehicle 19 loses itself in the delivery and I'll admit that this film had trouble holding my interest for the duration.

Walker does a decent enough job with his (mostly) one man show, he's brooding, a sort of anti-hero type. There are some okay action scenes too considering the limitations of his character never leaving the minivan, in fact he doesn't even stand up, remaining seated for the duration. There are a couple of car chases through the city streets but this is no 'Fast and Furious' with an obvious low budget and despite the fact that its been dubbed a "nonstop thrill ride" its really not. 2/22/16
