When Sylvia cuts the air lines under the trailer, the brakes would have locked up and stayed locked up. The brakes would not have released, and the truck would have had brakes even if the trailer didn't. See more »

One wild ride!
23 October 2000 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

For anyone not familiar with Meat Loaf, the actor, Blacktop is a movie that will introduce you to one of the most talented and versatile performers around today. This is a movie that proves that people are not always what they seem. And remember the warnings about not accepting rides from strangers? Listen and be afraid!

For the Meat Loaf fan this is a real treat - a leading role! The sharp-eyed fan will spot some of the characteristics of a few stage performance characters in Jack. Meat's ability to merge and intertwine his many characters are what give his roles a 3-dimensional human reality and what make him a superb performer in any arena.

If you like suspense, drama, and tongue-in-cheek humor you will like this movie, it's got them all.
