Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Highway Men

This is a high-speed, crazy-complicated movie of a psychopath who develops gory visuals of hit and run death scenes in his mind because he used to see pictures of them when he was a kid. His dad showed him. When he grew up he became a sales person but he also started playing out his crash scenes in real life.

He traveled across the country in his rampaging '72 Cadillac Eldora do and randomly picked up the best suited people to play victim to his sick run down scenes and then took something of theirs to remember them by.
He murdered innumerable people in this way but each accident took place hundreds of miles away from the other, therefore the police never had the imagination to link it all to one man.
At one of his hit and runs he murders the wife of the antagonist of the movie, Rennie Cray. Rennie goes after the man in his car and hits him head on. Fargo, pretending to be a common salesperson to the police says that Mrs. Cray's death was an accident and everyone believed him. This gave Rennie 3 years in jail.
Fargo, on the other hand, spends the next eighteen months in a hospital where the doctors build him back from scratch since he had lost both his legs but as soon as he is able to, he disappears from the hospital and continuous his wild rampage across the country.
Through a series of mechanical innovations, Fargo turns his Eldora do into a monstrous extension of his own twisted body and mind.
Three years later when Rennie gets released from jail and he crisscrosses through America in his stripped-down '68 Plymouth Barracuda, pursuing the killer and seeking revenge.
The movie is a high-speed, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse which comes to its climax when Fargo tries to kill Mollie (Rhona Mitra).
Fargo chooses Mollie and her friend as his next victims but molly survives. He leaves Mollie for later but Rennie saves her from Fargo at a couple of occasions and then uses her as bait to finally get to the wheel-chair bound psychopath.
The movie moves on to the ultimate car battle between the hero and the villain in whom the hero, as obvious, prevails with some help from Mollie and a traffic investigator.
The movie contains some gory visuals of death and viewer discretion is advised.
