Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde star in this romantic drama directed by Shana Feste.
Mukunda Michael Dewil directs Paul Walker and Naima McLean in a South Africa-set thriller that puts a single-setting spin on an ordinary-guy-in-over-his-head set-up.
Joining the likes of Unstoppable, Devil and Panic Room in the ranks of thrillers set in confined spaces, this is a Paul Walker vehicle in a very literal sense: it mostly takes place in a car. The Fast And Furious franchise stalwart here plays ex-con Michael Woods, a former alcoholic desperate to reunite with his girlfriend, but who becomes waylaid by corruption in South Africa that, like all the best corruption, goes right to the heart of government.
Vehicle 19 is not as much fun as the better entries in the Fast And Furious series, and Walker is fine but hardly extraordinary as the poor schlub trying to atone for past errors and stay out of trouble, who is forced unwillingly to eventually do the right thing and help the forces of good.
In a nutshell: An interesting idea paired with lacklustre execution makes for a passable rather than thrilling ride.
