Dalton is the Cooler in bars; He backs up and directs the bouncers. He takes a job in a Road House that has gotten far too rough. His attempts to clean things up put him in conflict with Brad Wesley, the town bully and rich person. Things heat up. Written by

When Patrick Swayze and Kelly Lynch are at his house and Swayze is tuning the radio, the first song he stops at, which they both sneer at, is Bullet's "Sold My Soul to Rock and Rroll". When Bullet is heard singing the lyrics "I sold my soul, my soul to rock 'n' roll" there is a really wild two-second guitar squeal or note sounding at the same time. This little guitar part cannot be heard on the official released version of that song. See more »
Early in the movie, Dalton's Mercedes is shown with flush headlights and cleaning wipers. When he's working out in the barn, it's shown as an older US model with recessed sealed-beam headlights and no wipers. See more »

A good example of how a great B-movie should be made.It entertains and gives the fans of it's genre straight up satisfaction without expecting the audience to take the whole story too seriously.Much like reading a good comic book.Here we have a good action comedy/drama with good action choreography and a simple plot of good versus evil and why each side does what it does.The acting is adequate and the cast chosen here was also good.The production values were all average but still,the overall flow of the movie just delivers for all those fans who understand B-action movies.This is the Swayze and Elliot I love.......
