Great movie
13 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overall this movie was very good in my opinion. The only thing I saw wrong with it was the scene where the camero went over the hill and had a damaged front fender then when the scene cuts back to it when it lands it has a perfectly fine front end. Other than that I thought the movie was good. I watch it every day but that also is because I like the thought of a movie on Tractor Trailers. Overall good move, good acting, Bible basing quotes not my favorite but a good movie. I give it 10 stars.

P.S. That quote on there: "One fart Wess and you're walking" is not by Jack Crews, but by Earl (Randy Travis) when driving the damaged camero up the hill.
