Collide – Movie Review
An American backpacker gets involved with a ring of drug smugglers as their driver, though he winds up on the run from his employers across the high-speed Autobahn.
Collide was released in many countries last year, and it’s taken this long to finally reach American theaters, which is never a good sign. As a diverting action thriller you could waste time with, the film is surprisingly light on thrills. At the very least, Collide offers the novelty of seeing Ben Kingsley give a monologue about his love for the tight body of Burt Reynolds. On top of that, Anthony Hopkins impersonates Sylvester Stallone, so… there’s at least something to enjoy.
