In the opening shot of a storm, the sound from every lightning strike in the distance is heard immediately, rather than delayed as it would be if one were actually watching such a storm in person. See more »

Need more truckers
18 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a great concept and brings us some great stories and personalities. It's educational and fun to ride with the truckers featured here. Unfortunately, the filmmaker doesn't seem to trust them to make an exciting film by themselves, and so there is near-schizophrenic cutting throughout (the average shot is probably about 3 seconds) and an overpowering amount of music to accompany every moment. It's also shot like an extended episode of Road Rules, with countless montages of road signs and scenery backed by aforementioned beat-heavy rock. I think the movie would actually be half as long if you took out these interludes. Which is a shame, because based on the amount of road footage the film includes, the filmmakers must have spent quite awhile on the road, and have got to have many more interview reels with truckers than they put in the final version. Since the filmmaker himself doesn't have much to say beyond the fact that truckers are good people and trucks are important, it's too bad that he didn't let the truckers say more themselves.
