My Opinion:

For the sake of this review, I’m using the American spelling of TIRE instead of TYRE. And, yeah – the only thing you need to know about the “plot” is that a tire comes to life and kills people with its psychic powers. Scanners-style. And the film is in English even though it’s French.

You’ll like this film or you’ll hate it. Most of you, my fellow movie-blogging buddies, will probably like it. My real-life buddies, who aren’t movie-obsessed geeks and already look at me like I’m mental when I try to discuss anything other than mainstream films, would probably stop talking to me forever if I actually recommended this film to them. Actually, I would be quite happy to have several people in my life stop talking to me so I’m going to recommend Rubber to them now.


What else?


Screw it.

Rubber. It’s a movie about a killer tire.

And I liked it!

No reason.

Here’s my rating and some pictures!

My Rating: 7.5/10
