Ex-truck driver Jack Crews (Patrick Swayze) has just been released from prison for vehicular manslaughter after losing control and hitting a stranded motorist. His family is in danger of losing their house, so he takes a job from his boss driving a truck up from Atlanta "off the books". Little does he know, the trailer is loaded with illegal artillery, and Red (Meat Loaf) is hell bent on hijacking it. Jack teams up with Earl (Randy Travis) to deliver the load and save his family.Written by
I am no fan of the stars of this movie or a truckdriving buff or interested in country music (not that that's overly relevant.) I borrowed this tape with low expectations but was happily surprised by how entertaining it was. What has happened to Patrick Swayze? I thought he did a good job acting in both Donnie Darko and now this. THIS film is what goofy, illogical action flicks are supposed to be. This isn't simply a music video stretched out to an hour-and-a-half. This director actually knows how to make a movie. The plot ain't deep but there IS a plot, which is important. The ideas are dopey but the actors aren't simply laughing their way through but rather they treated this like a serious work. The actress who plays Swayze's wife has a style which usually annoys me but she, too, was ok in this thing. Even the little bits of country music didn't bother me. A stupid finale? Sure, but even that was fun. Wow.
