The late Paul Walker plays Michael Woods, a good-looking, thirty something ex-con, who's fresh out of jail after serving an 18 month sentence, and looking to build bridges with his estranged girlfriend - his drink problem has caused issues in the relationship. He's released from custody on parole, which he promptly breaches, hiring a Hertz rental minivan (the titular Vehicle 19), in order to make his way across town to his disgruntled other half. Woods finds a handgun inside the minivan, and then takes a call from a mobile 'phone he discovers inside the glovebox, a police detective who directs him to drive the vehicle to an address in a less salubrious part of town.
Before too long, the wild goose chase finds Woods with a tied up lady dumped inside the rear of the van, holding a pistol which she's pointing directly at his head...
This is a watchable, but workmanlike, thriller. It has something in common with Tom Hardy's movie Locke, in that much of the story centres on what happens to Woods whilst he's driving around town in the minivan. However, restricting much of the film to the confines of the minivan, and with much of the run-time focussing on just the one actor, places unhelpful dramatic constraints on the movie. Tom Hardy, who's an exceptionally gifted actor with a very wide range, couldn't really salvage Locke, the whole film revolving around just him stuck inside a car on a motorway. Paul Walker is a likeable screen prescence, but a less dynamic and intense actor than Hardy, and he too struggles to keep the film involving when it's largely centred on just him stuck inside a vehicle.
This is by no means an awful film, but it's definitely not in the same league as the better instalments of The Fast And The Furious franchise, where Paul Walker earned his fame. It's worth a modest 2.5 stars. If you're looking for a car chase thriller with lots of fast paced action, this film might well disappoint you. If you want to see hypercars like Koenigseggs and Bugatti Veyrons go head to head, Need For Speed is a much better choice than this flick.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this review.

Michael Woods (Paul Walker) is an America on parole in South Africa wanting to visit his wife or ex-wife at the embassy. He picks up vehicle 19 at the rental place and it is clearly not for him. This leads him into a battle with crooked police as the vehicle contains things to implicate them in illegal activity.

This film takes place in the car, and not just just bits and pieces of it, I mean all of it. Paul Walker in the car talking on the cell phone. Paul Walker in the car driving on the wrong side of the street. Paul Walker in the car talking to people outside. Paul Walker in the car being chased by the police. Paul Walker being pulled over. Paul Walker in the car being shot at. Paul Walker in the car going through a car wash. Paul Walker in the car while it is getting painted...seriously. Paul Walker is on the screen so much George Clooney wants to change agents. The plot grew boring with no twists.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

I think the most hilarious comment here is "it's not in the same league as the better installments of the fast and furious franchise"....

This is not a bad film at all, but Paul Walker fans flocking here for a review were obviously looking for another CGI car chase film, and I for one am glad I did not find another crappy fast and furious clone. The fast and furious films are all lousy, by the way. This film is a slow burning story of Paul Walker's ex-con trying to do the right thing but (conveniently) being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The script is not top notch, but Paul Walker is probably more watchable here than in the fast and the CGI-tastic Furious. At least in this film, Paul Walker may actually have filmed a little bit in a moving car.

The supporting cast have little to do but again are watchable, and yes, you could end up guessing the ending, but I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. If you do not just watch really bad Vin Diesel films and can stand a low budget and slow paced movie (along the lines of phone booth with Colin Farrell), then you may actually like this movie. Like me, you probably won't love it though. Definitely worth a watch if you already have Prime.

Whilst Paul Walker may not be the best actor in the world, he has at least turned out some good films. Sadly this is not one of them, and even worse he's a producer on this one.

Sometimes low budget thrillers work well with a simple idea of a flawed hero (in this case he is very troubled) stuck in one a bad location or situation (Collin Farell in phonebooth for example, or the Chris Evans film cellular).

This time our hero picks up a rental car, that also happens to contain a hostage in the rear and a gun and mobile phone in the front, in which he receives sinister phone calls with instructions to follow from the bad guys. A good set up for a thriller.

With a similar concept to other aforementioned films, but lacking the tension or pace this film again fails. The central premise is actually quite clever, as most of the film is shot inside the rental car that Walkers character has picked up.

There's some good car stunts, but the film is just so slow and plods, with the central character taking sinister calls every now and then from the unseen villains and then plods from one scene to the next, with the odd bit of action.

Despite Walker and the film makers trying to be original with story and style, it all falls flat and feels like a cheap TV movie.

Watchable and not the worst film made, it suffers as it's a good idea, but poorly executed.

3/5 for attempting to be something a little different.

Unfortunately their is not much to this movie Paul Walker (RIP), plays Michael Wood. a man who get into the wrong car and the movie crawls on from there. About 95% of the movie is shot from the driver cam view, so all you really see is Michael seemingly moving around town. If like me you are expecting a fast and furious clone of a movie you will be severily disappointed. This is a slow moving yawn fest of a movie, if they tried to make the movie gritty and realistic they even failed in that I would advise against watching this movie watch any other Paul Walker movie.

This is a political thriller. The story is about real life South Africa and its current downward trajectory, social deprivation, crime and corruption. It is Paul Walker's best dramatic performance. This film portrays the reluctance and inner struggles of an ordinary man in trying to live up to our expectations of heroes. He gets caught up in a plot of intrigue far too powerful and dangerous for normal people to deal with. The odds of him pulling through to the end are improbable. This is an inspirational tale about the human spirit and hope. Our choices in life can be difficult and at times impossibly frustrating. People's lives and paths can cross in the strangest of circumstances. Fine performances also from the supporting cast. Watch this with an open mind.

I m a huge paul walker fan and this film is the worst ever. During the whole movie you're expecting for something to happen. There is a car in this film and pretty much nothing else. He is a good actor but this is a bad movie.

Just aweful! What an absolute load of tripe, buy the worlds biggest tin of paint, paint a wall, watch it dry then repeat until all the paint is gone and it would still be more entertaining than this!
