Normally I would make fun of Jim Caviezel for still insisting on being credited as “Jim” Caviezel well into his ’40s, but it’s Jim Caviezel, the badass Frank Castle/Punisher guy from “Person of Interest”, so I’ll make an exception for him. Before he found renewed fan interest on TV, though, Caviezel did a couple of under-the-radar movies, one of which was “Transit” from 2011, which is finally getting a theatrical release in 2012 thanks to After Dark Action, the same folks behind the annual After Dark horror film festival. Here’s a new trailer for “Transit”, which stars Caviezel as a father who must save his family from James Frain. Man, who plays bad guys better than James Frain? Dude just looks evil.
The family camping trip was meant to reunite the Sidwell family. It’s not. After being imprisoned for tax evasion, Nate Sidwell has lost the respect of his wife and his children. Then when he suspects their truck is being followed, he gets arrested for aggressive driving and has to spend a night in jail. Just when it seems the trip cannot get any worse, the Sidwells discover $4,000,000 cash in their luggage rack, and that Nate was wrong. They aren’t being followed. They’re being hunted – by four ruthless killers, who will stop at nothing to retrieve their millions.
Also starring Elisabeth Rohm (of “Law and Order” fame), Harold Perrineau (of “Lost” fame), Diora Baird (of lads mag fame) and Sterling Knight (never heard of him), and directed by Antonio Negret.
Look for it in theaters along with After Dark Action’s four other titles May 11, 2012.
