For a comedy, especially a 90's comedy Freeway is very violent and I suppose that is what makes the movie tolerable. The dark subject matter, the foul language and the excessive violence make for a pretty enjoyable ride. The great Sydney Lassick (One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Carrie, The Unseen) shows up for a quickie death scene. We also get some racy racist talk which is pretty unusual for a 90's flick unless of course Tarantino had something to do with it, which he did not.
Check it out for some straight razor slashing, suicide, drive-by shootings, and a deformed, drooling Kiefer Southerland.
