Lincoln Hawk (Stallone) is a struggling trucker who arm wrestles on the side to make extra cash while trying to rebuild his life. After the death of his wife, he tries to make amends with his son who he left behind 10 years earlier. Upon their first meeting, his son does not think too highly of him until he enters the World Arm Wrestling Championships in Las Vegas. His hope is to receive the grand prize of $100,000 and an expensive current custom semi-truck and thus start his own trucking company. Written by

At the beginning of the movie, you see Hawkes coming in through the guard station in front of the school. Once past the gate, you can see a long shot down the driveway of the academy. There are palm trees and desert plants along the edges of the drive. These type of plants would not be able to grow at the higher altitudes in Colorado. See more »
What are you trying to do? I gave you custody of the boy, I signed papers, what more do you want?
I'm trying to make things easy for you, Hawk. You don't need Michael as a meal ticket anymore. You're on a free ride. So take the truck, take the money. Start a new life, *start your own family*!
I've got a family! When this is over, I'm coming to get him.

An odd prop, specifically a "bucking bicycle" was used in the film. This bicycle was built by Terry Teene, writer and singer of the early 1960s monster parody song "Curse of the Hearse". See more »
I read one comment that said this movie is boring and lifeless which is a false statement. This movie is classic Sylvester Stallone and if you enjoyed the Rocky series you will enjoy this also. There are not many movies out there about arm wrestling but this movie does a great job and who better to star in the role but Stallone. Their might be some things in this movie that are stupid but it is the kind of stupid you laugh at. Also the names in this movie are great also, and it is just like a Stallone movie to have great names, but Lincoln Hawk is a great name. Underdog movies like this are great to watch and no one does them better than Stallone. The names and the one liners definetly make this movie worth watching.
