    There's not much edification in store, and [director] Bright cruises over some bumpy plot holes, but the teen's perspective does put a black comic spotlight on wider social hypocrisies.

    New York Times

    May 20, 2003

    Freeway glints here and there with dark humor amounting to a knowing wink that undercuts the cautionary tale at its heart and the seriousness of its graphic sociology.

    Globe and Mail

    July 12, 2002

    Cynical, stylish and witty.

    San Francisco Chronicle

    June 18, 2002

    Rude in the way the truth is rude -- only funnier.

    Los Angeles Times

    February 14, 2001

    It's too drawn-out, too talky and, at the most crucial moment, needlessly implausible, to sustain its humor and large dose of violence.

    Like it or hate it (or both), you have to admire its skill, and the over-the-top virtuosity of Reese Witherspoon and Kiefer Sutherland.

    Darkly humorous, witty and nasty, Freeway is an original take on the Red Riding Hood fairytale, featuring a wonderful performance by the teenage Reese Witherspoon, before she became a star

    [The] characters are crisp and fascinating, and the movie has a great anything-can-happen B-movie excitement feel to it.


    February 13, 2008

    One of the most stubbornly original and electrifying films not only of 1996, but of the '90s, period.

    It's just the sort of thing Oliver Stone strove so hard to achieve in Natural Born Killers, and [writer/director Matthew] Bright pulls it off effortlessly.

    Palo Alto Weekly

    May 14, 2003

    Freeway somehow manages to be hip, imaginative and hilarious. Road film, comedy, prison drama and Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers all rolled into one.


    November 28, 2002

    Shockingly dark and nasty take on the Red Riding Hood tale.
