    Film critic Robert "VX" Lee compares and contrasts the 1971 and 1997 versions of Vanishing Point. The good news is that "If the only thing you liked about the first movie was the car, you'll love this one -- same car, and it's pretty much the star of the movie." But then he delves into the philosophy and deeper meaning of the original and how it was lost in the remake, concluding that "What was a really simple, strange, and even subtle (for what is, in essence, the dumbest car chase movie ever) exploration of the heart of man, of individuality, and of life in general has been co-opted and twisted into a stupid, mean and (I would argue) ultimately racist piece of crap that doesn't even have the attraction of being fun to watch."
