Critics Consensus: Sean Bean tries giving motive and emotion to The Hitcher, but director Dave Meyers is more interested in cheap shocks, and gratuitous gore and torture.

[It's] cheerfully in touch with its own brainlessness.

Bloated, boring and over-explained.

Eric Red's sturdy genre script from 1986 has been diluted in the worst way possible.

Very bloody remake of Rutger Hauer cult favorite.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this remake of a 1986 horror film about a ruthless killer is violent and bloody from beginning to end. Bloody bodies, body parts, and splats of blood appear repeatedly. Weapons include knives, handguns, shotguns. Cars crash and flip over. Assaults are brutal and gratuitous (a rabbit is killed at start of movie, just because). There are images of gunshots to foreheads, and a stabbing victim lingers for some time, gasping and praying as his chest spurts blood. The goriest bits include a body ripped in half between two trucks (in the original movie, this was implied; here, it's shown) and a shotgun assault. Some fairly mild sexual scenes and strong language, including about 40 uses of "f--k," plus other profanity and sexual slang.
