  1. Freeway is rude in the way the truth is rude -- only funnier. The movie seduces with its humor, all the while presenting a realized vision of a harsh, absurd world.

    Bright cunningly translates the story of Little Red Riding Hood into the trashy vernacular of tabloid TV and reality-based cop shows.

    With one foot in the grind house and one in the art house, the smarts in Freeway are more than equal to its visceral kick.
  4. Cynical, stylish and witty. [21 Feb 1997]
  5. 70
    Freeway is full of nice touches—such as making the villain a psychologist— that play off the expectations of a familiar story. While also working as a conventional thriller, its many twists on the fairy tale make it work on an almost subliminal level.
  6. In spirit, if not in letter, it often resembles a gritty Warners crime movie of the 30s, and it held my interest in spite of its excesses.
  7. 30
    A white-trash riff on Little Red Riding Hood, the oddly titled Freeway is a road movie that hits a dead end.
