"The Wages of Fear" is considered one of the truly great films. It not only delivers terrific suspense and excitement, it is also a rather telling comment on the human condition.

One of the most amazing films ever. It's long, it's foreign and the tension builds and builds till it just explodes in your face. A must see for any true film buff.

This movie has it good points but it is far too long. It is also exceeding slow at points, especially at the beginning. It takes over 40 minutes to even get to where the men are selected for the perilous trip. I think it would be much beter if edited down to a more usual time frame for movies.
