Monster Truck Revenge Show
8 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

Well since the plot line on the Title page actually ruins the movie for you, I don't have to tell you what the movie's about. But what you have here is a below average revenge flick. As you know, the family dies, the girlfriend gets raped and youngun decides the best idea is to build a monster truck and run over all the baddies. Well, unfortunately there's really nothing cool about this flick. There are a couple neat stunt scenes with dudes in the back of a pick up truck, and those actually outshine the monster truck stunts. I've never seen monster truck rally live before, but I've seen a few on TV....not the whole thing. So pretty much I'm "if you've seen one monster truck run over a car, you've seen them all" type a guy. And that's a problem with this movie, you'd expect at least some unique monster truck action. Maybe even some stunts where they take off like in the rallys....nope, just slowly running over some cars, or showing the truck in slow-mo crashing through stuff. Besides the monster truck scenes being unimpressive, you also have a bunch of characters that just don't do it for ya either. Ned Beatty is probably the best in the group, just because he's playing a bad guy. And he still kinda sucked. His "sons" all stunk, not even any cheesy laughs or anything. That was the worst problem with this flick, the cheese factor never rose above a certain level to make it "cheesy-funny". It was just cheesy-bland. A damn shame too, since Rolling Vengeance had so much potential. But hey, it's not a bad movie at all, it rolls along at a decent pace and you even get to see some stripper boobies. But if you're expecting something special, neh, sorry. Rolling Vengeance ain't a flat tire, but it certainly ain't a Suped-Up beamer neither. It's more like a 1992 Honda Accord.
