Vanishing Point Synopsis
When his wife goes into a troubled labor while he is on the road over 1200 miles away James Kowalski, an ex race car driver and a former Army Ranger, attempts to elude police while trying to get home. After numerous chases he turns into a Native American reservation and reflects on his life, and his wife. He then heads off to break through an impenetrable police and FBI roadblock.
Vanishing Point Brief Review
Vanishing Point is a sweet film, in which we see Viggo playing a man who is head over heels in love with his very pregnant wife. It's worth watching just to imagine yourself the woman who's getting breakfast in bed from Jimmy. Lots of flashbacks to their courtship and wedding, in between wild car-chase scenes. One could imagine it being designed as a couple movie: she watches the kisses and he watches the cars.
