I was excited to watch this film....I love Christian Slater as well as Stephen King's work. After watching it, I and others felt that Slater was grossly miscast as Dolan. He would have been much more believable as the husband who put himself through torture for revenge. I thought Tom Sizemore or James Caan would have been better as Dolan. It was fun to acquire some visual context for the story though.

An interesting and very entertaining film. The concept of getting revenge on those who did you wrong is almost as old as time itself. Wes Bentley does a decent job as an adverage man driven to the very brink of madness when a crime boss (played by Christian Slater) murders his wife. The sequences dealing with Bentley's revenge stand out.

"This movie caught my attention at the video store and I read the synopsis and it sounded like it had potential, so I decided to give it a go. First off this film is based on a Stephen King short story which I learned during the opening credits of the dvd, being a Stephen King fan this made me expect more from the get go and I was not disappointed. Christian Slater and Wes Bentley both did an excellent job. Dolan's Cadillac was well paced and a pleasure to watch from beginning to end. One down side is i would have liked to know a little bit more about Wes Bentley's slain wife, but this did not take away too much from the film in my opinion. If you like revenge/thriller themed movies Dolan's Cadillac will not disappoint.

Wes Bentley continues to impress me with his acting ability. He has been in only a handful of recognizable films to the main stream Hollywood industry with such titles being P2, Ghost Rider, and American beauty. i would like to see him in more films."
A nice suprise adaption of a Stephen King short story!!!

"Being an avid reader of Stephen King's books, I'm always a little weary of how his stories are adapted to the screen. I bought this movie on blu-ray, not knowing if it would be any good and was very surprised at what an excellent job director Jeff Beesley did with this story.
Starring Christian Slater and Wes Bentley (American Beauty , Ghost Rider), the movie was very well adapted. Robinson (Bentley) seeks revenge on Jimmy Dolan (Slater) who murders Robinson's wife (Emmanuelle Vaugier) after she inadvertently witnesses one of Dolan's crimes. Unable to deal with his wife's death, Robinson plots his revenge against Vegas crime boss Dolan and carries it out with a unique twist.
Bentley gives an outstanding performance as the heartbroken widower and Slater's crazed performance as the deranged mobster are the heart of the movie. Slater's performance is reminiscent of his role in "Heathers" from the 1980's.
Well directed, it is a surprisingly fine adaption of Mr. King's work. I only hope that more of the masters work will be adapted for the big screen soon. Would love to see Bag Of Bones, Rose Madder & Duma Key on the screen one day.
So, grab a soda and a bucket of popcorn and take a ride in Dolan's Cadillac!"
Not bad

"Dolan's Cadillac is quite an impressive looking film. The budget was probably fairly small but that doesn't particularly show. The actors all do a fine job and the dialogue is very good. If it has a flaw it's that it's based on a short story and there's not really enough happening to justify the running time. As an hour long tv film it would be outstanding. Even so, it's well made and worth a watch."
