An off-screen narrator, Mort Golden, takes us back to winter around 1975, the year he was 21. He and his two buddies, Tim and Danny, have a fateful trip over the bridge from Detroit into Canada. The three of them are going nowhere in life, although Mort has thoughts of being a writer, while his mom wants him to go to college. He and his pals contemplate making a quick fortune transporting drugs over the border in their beat-up Buick, "the war wagon." Mort's also hopelessly in love with a girl he dated briefly a couple years before. With border inspectors, Tim's temper, and Danny's bottled up emotions, is there any way this can end well?

I first saw this movie on TV late one night. I was about to turn off the TV and go to bed at a decent hour when I heard the opening lines, "this is the tale of the War Wagon"...It grabbed my attention and as the movie progressed, I sat in rapture. This is an excellent movie with good acting, good actors and good directing. The soundtrack is full of hits that fit right into the plot and strengthen the setting, like any good soundtrack does. This is one of those "life" movies that ranks right up there with "Breakfast Club" and "The Diner"...check it out if you ever see it in the video rental store...
