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

The production company flew professional wrestlers Manny Fernandez and Sione Vailahi (a.k.a The Barbarian) to the set, but they weren't used in the film. The wrestlers were given some money to go eat and drink. The wrestlers headed to a bar for drinks. According to Fernandez, Barbarian got so drunk that after a patron insulted him,, Barbarian smashed his and Manny's mugs of beer over Barbarian's own forehead, then laughed as blood poured down over his face. The patrons were so shocked they called the police, who arrested Sione and put in him jail overnight. Manny called Sione's wife Seini, who bailed him out and flew him home. Sione later told Manny that Seini had cooked him a big Tongan meal when they got home. When Sione started eating, Seini blindsided him with a skillet, chastised him for his actions, and warned him not to get drunk again. Sione said, "Brother, I crawled on all fours, and she kept hitting me." See more »

One Of Sylvester Stallone's Best Movies, In My Opinion
This movie really touched base with me. I grew up not knowing my father, so I really felt for "Michael Cutler", played by David Mendenhall. This was the first thing I remembered seeing David in and I became a big fan of his thru this movie. I identified with his character so much.
If only there would have been a sequel to this movie. (+:
