Just really silly
Verified purchase
There are some bad plot points in films, but there is a moment at the start of this film that just absolutely takes the biscuit - the bad guys leave a 'don't tell the authorities message' for the witness to their criminal activities in such a way that the witness has no other choice but to tell the authorities; it is just a ridiculous premise - there is no way that a criminal would do such a downright stupid thing. And bang just like that I am out of the film. I have noticed that Stephen King is either brilliant or very poor, there does not seem to be a middle ground - and this really was poor, if this was the first draft of the very first story from a new writer, I would be advising them to stop there and get a job in a burger restaurant and never ever write again.

“He looks like anyone you see on the street…” [Opening voice-over]
Verified purchase
In this 2010 direct to video revenge drama, Elizabeth [Emmanuelle Vaugier] is horse riding in the desert and witnesses a human trafficking deal gone wrong but gangster Jimmy Dolan [Christian Slater] soon locates her and she and her husband end up on the Witness Protection program. Not long after Elizabeth is killed when her car explodes, so what will husband Tom do now?
This takes far too long to get to the main story [lose a *] while all Tom thinks about is self preservation so you don’t feel any attachment to him even after his wife is murdered and its only Slater that maintains the early interest. Its not until the second half that this shows any bite but everything about this seems to drag on for too long –even the gripping ending.
The single disc loads to three trailers then offers play, scene selection and bonus [Behind the wheel of Dolans Cadillac, B roll]. Rated 15, this has some swearing [F & C words], scenes of murder, people trafficking, torture and bloody violence but never really shifts into top gear. It’s a good premise, but totally unconvincing in many respects and it’s only the last quarter that stops this being a *** dirge.

A Stephen King adaptation that impresses
Verified purchase
Being a keen Stephen King reader, I am usually skeptical about adaptations of his work, having found that most movie/television versions fail to live up to the tensions wrought by King's unique style of storytelling. However, at a purchase price under £3 it didn't seem like too much of a risk to take. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that not only had the script for "Dolan's Cadillac" been well written but that the additions put in to flesh out the story rounded out all the characters nicely.

Christian Slater gives an excellent performance as the amoral Dolan, moving from in-control kingpin to a crazed man trapped by the husband of one of his victims. Wes Bentley also pulls off a nicely understated performance as Robinson. Admittedly there are points where staring vacuously is overdone, but on the whole it's a very enjoyable 85 minutes. A must for any King film fans.

The original story can be found in Stephen King's collection of short stories "Nightmares and Dreamscapes". It's a different experience to the film as it takes much longer for the tension to build, but I recommend it for anyone who wants an alternate take on this film.

How can you argue at this price?
Verified purchase
At the time, I was looking for a movie just to sum up my basket price and I came along this Blu-Ray. At less than £3.00 brand new, I didn't take another glance, I bought it and watched it as soon as it arrived.

I didn't expect it to be any good...but I was surprised. A fantastic revenge film. Though can get a bit claustrophobic which adds to the atmosphere of the film.

Though the blu-ray does have its faults...sometimes the movie can drag slightly, not many special features. Though the blu-ray transfer is rather good.

If you like other Stephen King based movies, you'll like this one... You can tell its from the same person's mind...

Smashing revenge film
Verified purchase
Have not read the Stephen King story that this was based on....so have no comparison, but what a great film. Enjoyed every minute of it.....and loved the ending, such a twist.

An existential thriller deserving of a larger audience
Verified purchase
The film is based on a short story by Stephen KIng, but while the source is more concerned with the actual 'how' of the enterprise, the film takes its time to ask in much more detail, 'why'. As a result, the film feels far more accomplished than the source, offering at last a more plausible rationale for one man's descent into insanity coupled with a simple but very well made revenge film. Not as elaborate as Law Abiding Citizen say, but with the same hard heart I found myself enjoying this immensely.

Car Crash & a Half!!
Verified purchase
I am a great fan of Stephen King's work and many times am disappointed with the film adaptations, but Dolan's Cadillac was a breath of fresh air, it didn't deviate from the short story too much and for that I'm grateful. Christian Slater plays an excellent bad guy. The film centres around a man who had lost his wife in a car bomb explosion and revenge with a twist is the order of the day.
