The Reviews for The Hitcher (1986) 720p


Highly entertaining and deeply disturbing.Reviewed bymakfuVote: 10/10

The Hitcher is easily one of the most underrated movies of all time. A masterpiece of a psychological thriller that is both highly entertaining and deeply disturbing.

There are three key pieces that make this movie work. The first is that the action, while often unrealistic in its depiction of events, serves to move the story and character development forward. In an era that witnessed the true beginning of action for the sake of action, this movie was a revelation that a director can use action for something other than just distracting the audience.

The second critical success factor is the subtext of what the characters represent. Jim Halsey represents logic and good, John Ryder represents mayhem and evil and Nash represents innocence. Without spoiling the plot, this dichotomy, and its ultimate resolution, is the real underlying story and Eric Red's telling of it is mesmerizing.

The final component of what makes this one of my favorite films of the 1980's is Rutger Hauer's brilliant and truly frightening performance. It's frightening not because he plays his role as some despicable delinquent personality, but because he is strangely likable and familiar. Regardless of how much you might not want to, it is easy to relate to him and it is that property that makes Hauer's performance such a harrowing manifestation of evil. If Norman Bates was the everyman killer lurking next door, then John Ryder is the everyman killer lurking inside you.

Wrap this all up in hauntingly beautiful cinematography, shot against the stunning but desolate backdrop of west Texas, with a nuanced score and you have a great movie. If you love thrillers that leave an impression and make you think, then don't miss this movie.

Deserves to hold it's place as a cult classicReviewed bydavideo-2Vote: 9/10

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Jim Halsey (C Thomas Howell) is a young man driving his car down a freeway one night who suddenly decides to stop for a man who is hitching a ride. That man is John Ryder (Rutger Hauer.) From the off-set, he doesn't make himself out to be a nice guy and he doesn't let up from there- threatening to kill Jim for no reason and making him sweat for his life. Jim manages to get rid of his twisted assailant- only to be thrown headlong into a maze of murderous mayhem as 'The Hitcher' goes on a killing spree (involving a lot of cops) with Jim getting taken as the scape-goat.

The film opens with a masterful bolt of suspense- in a thunderous rain-shower, The Hitcher holds out his thumb as a crack of thunder erupts over-head, setting the scene for the suspenseful, scary ride that's about to follow.

Hauer lives and breathes the role. In a career that sadly (because I really like the guy) declined into an endless sludge of direct to video hell shortly afterwards, this is quite possibly the role he'll best be remembered for (after all, he was only the co-star in Blade Runner.) Ryder is a cold, mean psycho whose only motivation seems to be to cause as much terror as he can. In his opening scene, he masterfully transforms very quickly from a bit of an arsehole into a threatening madman, as he explains to his charge why the last guy who gave him a ride won't get out to call for help. No clear explanation is ever discovered as to why he does what he does, the closest we get to this being a chat across a table in a diner, in which he offers "you're a smart boy...figure it out."

In the main supporting role Howell also shines (though nowhere near as much as Hauer), as the beleaguered, petrified young man whose endurance and sanity is pushed to breaking point. In an early role, Jennifer Jason Leigh makes a bit of an impression as the cafe owner's daughter love interest.

Spielberg's Duel first dealt with a man being hounded on an American highway for no reason...you are only left to guess 'The Hitcher' is meant to be the mad truck driver's brother. ****

Ultimative thril-ride one of the best road psycho thrillers ever my personal number 1 favoriteReviewed byrambofan4lifeVote: 10/10

The ultimate thrill-ride of one of the best road psycho action thrillers ever, my personal favorite number 1 thriller ever. The Hitcher (1986) is the ultimate action classic, the best road psycho thriller ever. I love this movie to death I love it. I love road thriller movies like: Joy Ride (2001), Road Games (1981), Duel (1971), Jeepers Creepers (2001), When Strangers Appears (2001) and more. The Hitcher is really my personal number 1 favorite road psycho thriller film from the 80's, I saw it as a teen when I was in high school.

I got finally after 14 years the DVD on Region 2 after long search I finally got this film in my DVD collection today. I don't know why this movie is not release on Blu-ray I don't get it, why is the remake on Blu-ray but not the original is beyond me.

Directed by Robert Harmon and written by Eric Red and starring: Rutger HauerC. Thomas Howell and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

This movie has everything great acting from everyone, great direction from Robert Harmon, cinematography is awesome, great practical action effects. Lot of good and eerie atmosphere too. Great gory, huge explosions like the gas station that blows up only in First Blood (1982) you will see gas station been blow up and in here. Cop cars flips over and explodes.

John Ryder (Rutger Hauer) is the ultimate Michael Myers type who kills everyone on the road except Jim Halsey (C. Thomas Howell) who plays with him a game of cat and mouse. He frames Jim Halsey for the murders in which Jim did not commit. Jim is on the run from the maniac "Hitcher" who try's to kill him and plays a cat and mouse game with him. Only one girl Nash (Jennifer Jason Leigh) believe Jim is innocent and he did do nothing and she try's to help him out.

One of the best psycho road action thrillers ever, you have guns, chases everything this cult classic of a film has. C. Thomas Howell is legendary as Jim Halsey who must fight for his life and stop John Ryder.

Rutger Hauer's best performance ever why we fans love this film to death and cherish it, it is because of Rutger Hauer. The Hitcher is a cult classic ultimate thriller-ride the best film of all time. 10/10
