good trucking action

Jack Crews (Patrick Swayze) is an ex-con trying to go straight for his family Melanie (Brenda Strong) and daughter Tracy. He's an expert driver and the court took away his license. His boss Cutler offers him a job off the books to pick up a mysterious load from Atlanta. His home is threatened with foreclosure and he decides to take the job. In Atlanta, Red (Meat Loaf) pairs Jack up with Earl (Randy Travis) with Sonny (Gabriel Casseus) and Wes (Brian Kelly) driving behind them. Ford (Charles S. Dutton) and McClaren (Stephen Tobolowsky) are bickering agents from different federal agencies looking to shut down the smuggling ring. The cops are not the only one after them. Red is looking to doublecross them.

While I appreciate creating a sense that everybody's coming after Jack, it makes no sense that Red would fight his own men for the load. Red should have replaced the entire crew with his men. He definitely has plenty of men to spare. The cops are tracking the load but nobody is following them. The writing is terribly flawed but there is good trucking action. I like the unusual truck on truck violence but that's about all. Red keeps coming back to annoy me.

A Fun, Fast Little Action Film

An ex-con (Patrick Swayze) takes a job driving a truck cross country. What he does not know is that the truck is filled with illegal weapons and now he must fight to survive and save his family.

This film is given low ratings, and I suspect the reason is that people wanted it to be more than it is. This is the story of a man who has one chance to make a big score, and he is followed by trouble -- explosions and car crashes ensue. If you wanted more than a nice popcorn-munching film, you put the wrong DVD in, my friend.

I enjoyed this one. I did have a question or two about the plot that I think was never fully answered, but then I had to refer myself to the previous paragraph: I was expecting too much and should just relax. After that change of perspective, it is a joy.

Unstopped action movie with trucks, guns and violence

The movie talks upon an ex-con named Jack(Patrick Swayze),he's working as mechanic in New Jersey, the bank is about to evict his house and he has no other choice taking a job for Red(Meat Loaf),driving a large truck in a long ride cross county, all the way from Atlanta . The truck is filled with illegal arms and he must to fight for saving his spouse(Brenda Strong) and daughter. Meanwhile the ATF and Feds (Stephen Tobolowski, Charles S Dutton, Lorraine Toussaint)are after from him.

The motion picture packs noisy action, race trucks, exciting thriller and is quite amusing, furthermore contains an eerie twist plot with the legend of apparition an ominous black dog. It's entertaining because from the beginning to the end the action packed and suspense is nonstop. Patrick Swayze( unforgettable in Dirty dancing) as a two-fisted action man saving his family is cool though a little wizened.Colorful cinematography and catching musical score by George S Clinton. The picture is professionally directed by Kevin Hooks( son of actor Robert Hooks).He's an action movies expert (Passenger 57 , Fled, among others),though he usually works for television , filming known and famous series( Prison break, 24, Lost, Cold case, NYPD Blue..). Rating : Acceptable and passable and it will like to action movies buffs and Patrick Swayze fans.
