1.0 out of 5 stars Vanishing 'What's the Point?' 25 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
Fans of the original will squirm in embarrassment at this travesty. It's a fluffy bunny version, every hard edge faithfully removed, a gruesome happy ending, a white DJ for God's sake! Cleavon Little must be spinning in his grave. Viggo Mortensen is wooden and unconvincing, and Jason Priestly is, well, white. Super Soul in the original was the Jiminy Cricket of the film, a marvelous creation, full of energy and vitality and, above all, SOUL! Lacking even the saving grace of the orginal soundtrack, at least this version retains the Dodge Challenger. But that's all, that really is all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Didnt not arrive!! 22 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this expecting it to arrive as normal by normal POST... ie postman.... but it was sent by courier and never arrived...I have to wait 30days to get my money back.... still waiting..... Why cant you advise HOW the item will be delivered BEFORE we pay for it...so we can decide if to go ahead....???? It was for a special present...very disappointed...I would not have ordered it if I had known it was coming via a courier as they never find me!...thats why I use Amazon...as it normally comes via post/mail.....!!!

Im sure the DVD would have lived up to expectations and I will try to find it from another source..... ie not Amazon!

2.0 out of 5 stars You really should see the original movie instead. 3 April 2005
By H. N. Dohe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
They totally took out the whole core of what made the original movie tick. Barry Newman's Kowalski is an anti-hero of the first order- an ex-hero-cop who left the force because of all the dirty doings going on. He pops pills to stay awake to make his car deliveries. And he gets to be an icon of "rebellion against the man", even though he had no intention of doing so. In this movie, Viggo Mortenson's a family man just making car deliveries. His wife is pregnant and almost due, but he wants to make one last big delivery- of a super white Challenger. Course his wife has complications, and he's in a race to get back home to the hospital. He attracts the attention of local law enforcement due to his wild driving and speeding, and for some reason they decide to make an example of him. At one point one of the officers says, 'why don't we just let him go home, see his wife, and pick him up in a week?'. The same thought runs through the viewers mind, oh, right after the law finds out WHY he's off and running! And WORSE, they give this movie a happy ending!

The only redeeming feature is the car shots- especially the supercar shoot-out between the Challenger and a Charger. Which is why I gave it two stars

But this remake has cut all the soul out of the original movie. In the first movie, there's a touch of mysticism (there's a scene where Kowalski drives past himself in a car he just delivered going in the oppostite direction). There's a feeling of hopelessness in Kowalski that explains the ending better. And nobody will ever consider the remake to be a cult classic like the original is.

Ladies will enjoy all the shots of Viggo in this movie, I'm sure. And if Kowalski had been played by Jessica Alba I probably would've been kinder in my review. But as it stands, it's a pale imitation of the original.

1.0 out of 5 stars i have never seen source movies like the original"vanishing point" raped and spoiled this bad before 5 May 2006
By John D. Page - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
how can you take the best drive-in movie ever made and turn out this WEAK AND POINTLESS remake that robs the story of all the best parts.maybe it was because they gave to much of his background or maybe it's because they give him a good reason for the chase(wife about to have a baby). in the original he starts the whole thing over a $10.00 bet and nothing more(that we know), so with some of the mystery gone most of the tension is gone also. really a miss step by all involved

1.0 out of 5 stars Another One 16 Jun 2005
By Axel Slingerland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Yeah, you guessed it... Another movie that makes you wonder if the writers in the movie industry have the worst case of writers block known to man. It seems that at least seven out of ten movies that have come out in the last ten years are poor remakes of classic movies that should have been left alone. It's bad enough that they can't write anything original, but then they go and massacre good movies someone else made... The only things this movie has in common with the original Vanishing Point are the desert, the Dodge, and the chase scenes. And that makes it a spinoff of the original, not a remake of it. Viggo Mortonsen is an excellent actor, but this is a C grade movie at best. The even ruined the scene with the lady biker...

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED this movie! 23 Feb 2005
By Jrobby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely adore this movie, having caught it on late-late-late night television a while back. Fortunately, I had the foresight to tape it because I have watched it at least ten times since. I am so thrilled that they are finally releasing it on DVD! This Vanishing Point is a "remake" of the 1971 feature film by the same name. It stars Viggo Mortensen in the lead role and Jason Priestly as "the Voice". I have never seen the original Vanishing Point but I understand that quite a few plot points have been changed in this made-for-TV version. Viggo Mortensen plays (excellently, of course!) Kowalski, a former Army Ranger/race car driver living in Idaho with his pregnant wife. He takes a job transporting a (gorgeous) Dodge Challenger across the country to earn enough money to pay for his wife to have her baby in the hospital. Unfortunately, his wife falls ill and Kowalksi must race against time to be by her side. Of course, the police and federal government are hot on his heels. This movie was made shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing and its views on the government may be a little surprising for a post-9/11 viewing audience. Some of the best parts of Vanishing Point come from the interactions Kowalski has with the various people he meets along his way. Guys, who may be bored with all the close-ups of Viggo Mortensen in a white t-shirt and tight blue jeans, will be pleasantly surprised to see Peta Wilson (of La Femme Nikita fame) speeding around on a motorcycle in a bikini midway through the film. See - there is something for everyone. I would highly recommend Vanishing Point as a fun, sweet, poignant, and interesting movie. Bonus: the swearing is almost non-existent and there is only one scene with a couple (a married couple) in bed and even then they are both covered up. My eleven-year-old niece can enjoy this movie with me, which makes it even more special. Buy it!
