Derailed (2002) Review


Terrible
Proving that her brazen performance in Mulholland Drive was a total fluke, Laura Harring's sad attempt at acting in this Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle is nonetheless the best part of the movie. At least she has personality, if you catch my meaning.

Sadly, this apparent remake of Under Siege II, if you can believe that, has a speeding train, a biological weapon as cargo, terrorists, and Van Damme to muck up the operation. With all the usual atrocious dialogue ("We've got to clear the tracks now... and call the World Health Organization!"), awful effects (some of the worst bluescreening I've ever seen, and isn't that the cutest little model train???), and of course, fisticuffs (poor Van Damme isn't getting any younger), this is one bad, bad movie.

John Dahl knows the secrets to making a great B-grade fright flick: 1) don't take yourself too seriously and 2) what you don't show can be much more terrifying than what you do.

The director of such sublime human underbelly fare as "The Last Seduction," "Red Rock West," in "Joy Ride" Dahl takes two teen movie staples -- the road trip and the psychotic killer -- and marries them in one dark, fun and scary popcorn flick.

College boy Paul Walker ("The Fast and the Furious") and his knavish, drunk-and-disorderly brother Steve Zahn ("Saving Silverman") are travelling home for summer vacation when they prank a trucker on the CB radio in their beater of a used car. Walker puts on a girly voice and tells a creep using the handle "Rusty Nail" to meet him in a motel room for an anonymous late night tryst.
