Certainly sounds like it's based on Wages of Fear. One of the greatest films ever made. Not sure that it needed a remake.
Sorcerer (1977) 9/10
Friedkin hell, what a find. How's this for a movie. 4 men from different backgrounds (including Roy Scheider) commit crimes, hide in a South American village, an oil well explodes and the 4 men are assigned to transport the only available,poorly stored and highly unstable nitroglycerin 200 miles in two trucks through the rough terrain to the oil well. Well if that doesn't get your heart racing I don't know what will.
The only flaw would be the slow start but once the backstories are told it's pretty great. How they did the all practical bridge scene without killing someone I will never know. Amazing. William Friedkin's hidden gem.
