"I thought that Freeway was weird but gripping: it has a unique feel (that can also be experienced in Modern Vampires). This movie is something else.I do not know why it is called Freeway 2 other than to attract audiences taken in by the first film. It has no common characters (at least none that I could remember) and only the trickbaby and social abuse themes are the same.This is a movie of two very unequal halves. The first half involves White Girl and Cyclona in a juvenile jail. White Girl has been unfairly imprisoned and Cyclona killed her family. There are the usual stereotypes and a really good projectile vomit scene. They escape and create a trail of chaos witeh the extent of Cyclona's mental illness becoming clear.The best part of the movie is when they hit Tijuana. Now it gets really BIZARRE! Vincent Gallo is a cannibal, cross dressing, religious nut with a penchant for making child-sex movies that pretends to cure Cyclona of her demons and attempts to overfeed White Girl to health. Well, it doesn't make any sense but it does have a happy ending (not too far unrelated to Hansel and Gretel)."

"Being a fan of the original "Freeway," I almost did not rent this movie because it is not a continuation of the first movie. In fact, it doesn't even have the same actors as the first and its plot is completely different. Also, the video cover suggests that the movie is a low budget b-rated flick with terrible acting and an even worse plot. I was pleasantly surprised. If you are a fan of the original than you will absolutely love this movie. Its darker, more perverted, twisted and sick. Its a dark disturbing movie that delves into as many dark and taboo themes as one could ask for. Cannibalism, serial killing, bulimia, lesbianism, psychopaths, fantasy..this movie has it all. I also loved the inclusion of a fairy tale theme that was actually more a part of the movie than the little red riding hood was in the original. Definitely a must see!"

"This was an absolutely freaky movie. Sort of like the gory accident on the freeway that you don't want to look at, but can't seem to look away from. In spite of that, I loved this movie. I thought Cyclona was so pathetic and terrifying at the same time. And White Girl was so strong. Anyone who was raised by crazy people (now days called grossly dysfunctional)will see someone they know in this film.It is truly Hansel & Gretel on LSD. I recommend it to everyone with an open mind and a strong stomache."

"This is a very bad film. "Freeway" was an excellent film portraying the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood in an odd, yet interesting and brilliant new way with great acting from Keifer Sutherland and Reese Witherspoon. "Freeway 2: Confessions of a Trick Baby" is a terrible film trying to follow in the footsteps of "Freeway" by rewriting a fairy tale, only this time it's Hansel and Gretel. In "Freeway," the fairy tale was crucial to the plot and helped move the story from one scene to the next. "Freeway 2" adds in the fairy tale at the last minute as sort of an after thought and it has no relevance to the plot. This may have been a better movie had the writer decided to not make this a sequel to "Freeway" and instead focus on the characters of White Girl and Cyclona, who are two escaped criminals. One is a bulemic convicted drug dealer and prostitute sent away to a correctial facility and later prison for twenty years when a punishment that severe was unnecesary. The other (Cyclona) is a convicted serial killer who may either be delusional or have been pushed to the crimes she committed.Instead, the film turns out to instead be a mess of a movie filled with unconnected scenes of graphic violence and mayhem followed by explicit scenes of sex that has nothing to do with either the plot or character development. The language and graphic violence in the first was somewhat needed to help form the characters in the film. In this film, it is unnecessary and seems forced by the characters.Anyone who is open minded should seek out the superb "Freeway" and avoid this one. If you've seen "Freeway," the only reason to see this one would be to compare the two, only to realize how much better "Freeway" really is. Vincent Gallo is listed as being one of the main characters in this film, but he doesn't show up until the end and does a poor job of portraying a canabalistic serial killler."
