Review The film works -- and does so manifestly -- because its intentions are clearly delineated. Using black humor, blood, and a pair of tremendous performances, Freeway hones in on its targets and calculatedly skewers them one-by-one. First up is America's welfare system. Then the judicial system. Then the penal system. And, when you put all the pieces together, you realize that Freeway is making a penetrating statement about the general populace's endless fascination with the lurid and violent. And, unlike Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers, which was torpedoed by interference from the director's ego, Freeway drives home the point effectively. This movie is both grimly funny and thought-provoking...Freeway contains several great moments, many of which work equally well as social commentary and comedy

Review Since post modernism, fairytales just aren't quite what they used to be. The Little Red Riding Hood of the nineties has really wizened up. These days when she travels to Grandma's house she carries a decent sized calibre firearm and a good dose of her own militant style feminist politics: just in case she should run into the Big Bad Wolf...First time director and screenwriter Bright brilliantly transforms a childhood classic into a gripping parable which reflects the issues of violence and abuse in modern society...The humour is very black indeed and the violence so realistic that it can sometimes overpower the satire. But if you've got the stomach for it, Freeway is an intelligent and action packed thriller.
