If you like Sci-Fi, this movie rox!
23 February 2005 | by redneckrocker99See all my reviews

I had the privilege of watching the movie when it came out in '88. I was 13 and in love w/ sci-fi. Knight Rider, Automan, Airwolf, they all made me wish I had them for myself! When I saw this movie for the first time, I thought I WANT ONE OF THOSE! I mean, come on now, who wouldn't want a heavily armored tractor-trailer that could turn into a helicopter? It was just plain INSANE! And I mean that in a good way. The series introduced the main characters bud who had a unique truck of his own. Although it looked more like a car hauling a Semi-trailer, There was one episode where this particular vehicle came into play and you sit there and say, "wow, now I know why it looks like that!" Back up to the ocean and open the trailer doors and release a mini-sub? How cool is that? Like I said, if you like sci-fi, this is a MUST SEE!
