Duel + Breakdown + Black Dog = BlackTop
26 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Duel + Breakdown + Joy Ride + Black Dog = BlackTop

Of course mostly bad elements of Duel, Breakdown and dare I say it Black Dog.

MeatLoaf is overacting, otherwise I would commend him for a job well done.

Lots of teasing, but no actual nudity. This is the kind of film you watch at 430 AM drunk. Suspend logic, disbelief and "Why doesn't he/she just do x, y or z." and you will be fine.

Check out the others first, especially Duel.

Thanks.
