Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: For my taste, it was better off left dead, roadkill on the cinematic highway.
- Bruce Kirkland, Jam! Movies, Tuesday, November 27, 2007
Fresh: There are several good jumps and scares, and it's surprisingly tense the whole way through, not just gory and cheesy.

This is the only Hitcher version I rather stuck on. It is this one!

Really a piece of trash, I couldn't even finish watching. They took everything away from a movie I hold dear to me. Sofia Bush was the only, and I mean only reason to watch this. Sean Bean just totally missed the point of his character. It's a movie that should never have been remade.

While Sean Bean deserves credit for his 'menacing' performance (applause), I'm disappointed that the film overall was really nothing to get excited over... Just another instance of where the remake has fallen short of the glory of the original...cheap shocks don't make a remake better people...
