Did You Know?


There were two monster trucks built for the movie by Mike Welch. After filming Mr. Welch kept the only surviving truck and replaced the cab with a Peterbilt, and named the truck "Super Pete", it was used in monster truck shows into the 90's and after years of abuse it was finally scrapped.

BAD monster truck movie is...well...bad!
27 October 1998 | by (Suffolk, VA. (U.S.A.)) – See all my reviews

The first time you look at it, ROLLING VENGEANCE looks like it's going to be a cool picture. Sadly, movies like this do not translate well as full-length features. In addition, it suffers from the same old formula where somebody takes revenge on another and wins. An interesting point about the movie is that our lead character is in a no-win situation against both the criminal and the law, but our revengeful modern age prince saves the day as usual! Those who enjoy watching monster trucks do some killer stunts just like at the arena will be greatly discouraged. There's nothing special in the world other than just a cookie-cutter action movie.
