Lincoln Hawk (Stallone) is a struggling trucker who arm wrestles on the side to make extra cash while trying to rebuild his life. After the death of his wife, he tries to make amends with his son who he left behind 10 years earlier. Upon their first meeting, his son does not think too highly of him until he enters the World Arm Wrestling Championships in Las Vegas. His hope is to receive the grand prize of $100,000 and an expensive current custom semi-truck and thus start his own trucking company.Written by

When Hawks is picked up from jail, the Japanese writing scrawled on the wall that says "Kelly," along with nonsense writing that isn't kanji. See more »
When Lincoln Hawk is announced as the last finalist, he sits in front of the truck with his right elbow wrapped in a towel. The shot cuts away, and when it comes back to Hawk, the towel is in his back pocket and he puts it on again. See more »

He doesn't even belong on my arm wrestling table. That's my area, that's my game, and he's got no shittin' business there. And all I want to do is hurt him, cripple him, get him off the table. And so he never dares try to compete against me again.

The version broadcast on TV (most notably on TBS) contains a different version of the opening song "In This Country". See more »
Some LOVE this movie. I do. I LOVE the soundtrack. You'll see a million posts from "critics" on here who will look down their nose at this flick. Do you like a movie? WATCH IT! Forget what these morons say about bad cinematography, etc. Movie-makers create films for one reason -- viewers' pleasure (which brings money). Great 80's movie. Period.
