Very Underrated
22 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on cable and never saw it in theaters but it was on at 2:00 am and I had a test in my Philosophy class. I said "screw the test" and watched this movie.

I have never been a fan of Mr. Swayze. Didn't see Dirty Dancing or that movie where he plays a tough bouncer. Didn't want to. But this movie is very good for what it is worth. First of all, I compare the storyline to Smokey and the Bandit....except minus the humor and lamentably the actors. The movie is about a ex-con trying to save his house by driving a truck full of illegal weapons across the eastern seaboard. You've got some great people in this movie +Patrick Swayze: he looks like he could be a truck driver +Randy Travis: who I admit I didn't recognize with the beard. I have no idea why he grew it +Possibly 50 Cent's brother. No doubt..when you see this man (who isn't related) you'll hear Wanksta begin playing +And the best Bloated Bible Thumping Meat "Old Ass Bat Out Of Hell" Loaf..who I cant believe actually CHOSE that name. This movie is not geared towards film buffs nor does it pretend to do so. This movie is for those who love the road and Cannonball Run (the first one only, jeez) or Smokey and The Bandit(Numbers 1 and 3..Dom Deluise and that retarded elephant killed number 2) The rest of the characters are a joke (especially the FBI agents...ever seen Pardon The Interruption?) but this movie is nothing more than an exciting and hard to stop watching road classic. Plus I live near where they drive the truck through (how about some love for South Carolina and N. Carolina looks amazing in the movie) So In conclusion, don't put down your Dead Poets Society or your Good Will Hunting for this, but sit back with a beer and enjoy this modern classic.
