At the end of the road, however, Detour is not the kind of trip you want to take twice; more than likely, not even once. It speeds through familiar territory hoping you won't recognize the scenery, and plows straight through more than a few brick walls on its way to sale-bin obscurity at the video store. Those satisfied with a fleeting drive-by of a movie may be satisfied by its goofiness and gore, but most passengers will want to get out of the car at the nearest stop.

Cheesy and basically a Hills Have Eyes ripoff, but a decent flick in the end if you see it with an open mind. Not recommended unless you're easily pleased and have nothing else to rent. 5/10
|...surprisingly good, with a professional and distinctively colourful look. Very much a homage to The Hills Have Eyes, it doesn't skimp on the gore and violence, giving us the splattery fun that we crave. |
