Sometimes prejudice can blind you to the truth...
26 May 2001 | by (Omaha, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this in the German language version titled, oddly enough, "Killer Truck." Although a truck driver and his truck do play a role in the film, the title of "Haine" or "Hate" is much more appropriate. Klaus Kinski plays the role of a drifter on a motorcycle who happens to be passing through town immediately after a young school girl has been run over and killed by an unknown person on a motorcycle. The parents of the girl conspire to get rid of Kinski with the help of some of the locals including the town bully who recently had a run-in with Kinski in a pub over a woman. Kinski's only ally is the woman whose honor he tried to defend. Trapped in the town due to sabotage on his bike and a number of other incidents, Kinski soon realizes he is in real trouble. Although I do not speak German, I was able to follow the movie quite easily as it is not overly dominated by dialogue and has a surprising amount of action. I strongly recommend this movie as you will see Kinski in the surprising turnaround role of a victim as opposed to the predator or villain he most notably plays.
