When his wife is killed by mobster Dolan after she witnessed him committing murder, grief-stricken Robinson hatches a plan to exact retribution. You see, Dolan regularly drives between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and sometimes there are roadworks... Dolan's Cadillac is one of Stephen King's simplest short stories, lovingly crafted around a number of technical issues the answers to which were supplied to him by his big brother. Those technicalities are not necessary in the film - what happens happens, we see it but we don't need to know exactly how - and, instead, other aspects of the story are amplified (and, indeed, added). The main story beats remain consistent, however. Christian Slater treads a fine line between inhuman urbanity and crazed loon as Dolan's fate unfolds. Wes Bentley is fine as the grieving and somewhat unhinged Robinson, and Emmanuelle Vaugier is adequate as the doomed Elizabeth. This film passes the time but is otherwise fairly unmemorable.
