Jeff and Amy Taylor are moving to California and must drive across the country. When they find themselves stranded in the middle of a desert with hardly anyone or anything around, their trip comes to a sudden halt. Amy had taken a ride with a friendly trucker to a small diner to call for help, but after a long time, Jeff becomes worried. He finds that no one in the diner has seen or heard from his wife. When he finds the trucker who gave Amy the ride, the trucker swears he has never seen her. Now Jeff must attempt to find his wife, who has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. But who can he trust?Written by
When Red (J.T. Walsh) says to Jeff (Kurt Russell): "49 minutes, Jeff. Time to get the show on the road." - it is exactly 49 minutes until the end of the movie. See more »
During the final chase scene, the red Firebird flips, and explodes. During the beginning of the flip, the pipe that causes the flip can be seen vertically beneath the car. See more »
You're a tough man to get a hold of, Jeffery.
What do you want?
It's not what I want, it's what you want, and how bad you want it. 'Cause it's gonna cost you. Can't show it to you right now, but it's about 5'5", 115 pounds, three or four of that just pure tit. Nice curly brown hair, upstairs and down. Interested?

German version was edited to remove sight of Kathleen Quinlan moving the gearshift of the pickup-truck (so it looks like Red Barr's truck falls down by itself). See more »
Real gripping thriller, Russell though tends to be a bit of a wimp to start with then starts getting angry, the storyline is good but some of the scenarios are a little disbelieving and you will tend to keep saying things like "How come he has managed to escape and chase them so easily?" "How come she did that?" etc
The scenery is real nice, fans of road movies will be pleased too with the New Mexico landscapes and long quiet roads.
Worth a watch! We go into real redneck territory here also. I would like to criticise some of the acting though, the delivery of some of the lines tends to be a tad wooden in places (not so much from Russell) but I don't suppose the all non-star cast could expect Oscars.
