A 17 year old farm boy is offered an ice hockey tryout. His brother drives him to Canada. He has fast legs, slow fists, but is chosen. Will he learn to use his fists and play ice hockey the Canuck way? Will he get the coach's cute daughter?
Serene and laconic, yet powerful and lethal, Dalton is an expert in martial arts and the best professional bouncer in the business. With such a reputation, Dalton is summoned in a small town in Missouri to clean up the sleazy bar called The Double Deuce from the troublemakers who terrorize the customers, without knowing, however, that the villainous local entrepreneur, Brad Wesley, wants things to remain unchanged. As Dalton cleans up the nightclub, and with it, the town from Wesley's hired goons, a deep wound from a knife will inspire a passionate affair with local Dr. Elizabeth "Doc" Clay. Now, the corrupt Wesley has enough reasons to take Dalton out of the way, nevertheless, the bouncer has the final say.Written by
Red's Auto Supply Store explosion woke the neighbors. They thought that MGM studios was burning down. It cost twenty-five thousand dollars to shoot that scene. See more »
Dalton's stuntman is visible several times during the movie, particularly when going over the Double Deuce railing when fighting O'Connor, and when fighting Brad Wesley at the end. He's much bigger than Swayze. See more »

The UK cinema version was intact, although the video release was cut by 10 seconds by the BBFC to remove a knee kick, a double ear-clap and a groin punch. Dialogue about felling enemies by kicking them in the knee was also removed. The cuts were waived in 2001 for the DVD release. See more »
This is why I predict the American cinema and studio system will die.
Nowadays it is all boring sequels and prequels and univirse films where every woman is an engineer and hates herself and is ashamed of her own body and so hides it.
I am stopping my interest in (new) movies now.
Road House has brawny men, nice women, bad women, thin women, available women, fighting, music and rowdiness.
And Hollywood if.you.really.really.insist there is a female physician. Happy? And she voluntarily gets on her back on the first date (should give you heart attack right there).
