Paradise by the dashboard lights of the semi? NOT!
14 July 2003 | by (Minneapolis, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the third or fourth film I've seen with Meatloaf Aday playing a character. I was not a fan of his acting in his videos, and I still feel the same way when it comes to full length feature films. But the guy can sing, and I am a fan of his in that respect, so my admiration follows him to the screen, where, once again, he is driving a large vehicle with just as big an ego behind the wheel (same as he was in "BLACK DOG").

But this time, he plays a psychopathic trucker with "issues" left to be dealt with. And Kristin Davis gets caught in the middle when she has a fight with boyfriend Lochlyn Munro, getting picked up as a hitch hiker by Aday, not knowing what she's traded up (or down) for.

This film had a little suspense in it, but I wasn't on the edge of the couch, waiting for the next event to happen, but I was intrigued, nonetheless. The characters were developed to the point where I knew where Aday's character defects lay, but it is an almost systematic plot that was really predictable. I scored a 6 on this film, but I think I was being generous just for the fact that Aday was the star.
