    An ex-con daredevil trucker must reinfect himself with white-line fever in order to save his wife and kid from nasty gunrunners in this enjoyably mindless, twisted-metal-fest from the director of Passenger 57. Longtime MIA action stud Patrick Swayze (who snagged the part after Kevin Sorbo had to suddenly vacate due to health problems) is even more expressionless than usual in the lead role, but helmer Kevin Hooks compensates with a seriously rocking country soundtrack, some pleasantly eccentric supporting characters (including erstwhile crooner Randy Travis and a way-over-the-top Meatloaf as a psychotic trucker preaching damnation by the dashboard light), and--most importantly--a whole lot of rolling iron getting smashed in spectacularly kinetic fashion. A low-down, down-home, cotton-picking flick that blows up real good. --Andrew Wright

    Product Description

    Patrick Swayze, Randy Travis and Meat Loaf team up to deliver explosive, nonstop high-speed action in this adrenaline-pumping highway road war. A 40-ton truck is a lethal weapon and veteran driver Jack Crews (Swayze) knows how to use it. Desperate for cash, he's got one last delivery to make. The trip's barely begun when he and partner Earl (Travis) discover they've been set up and are being chased by Red (Meat Loaf), a relentless fanatic who's as deadly as he is greedy. Now, with his family, his life and his freedom on the line, Jack's going to buckle up, put the pedal down and show Red and the Feds a thing or two about road rage. After being double-crossed and rudely underestimated, Jack and Earl shift gears, becoming a two-man wrecking crew, trucking down the highway blazing a trail of diesel-powered destruction.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST SEE FOR EVERY TRUCKER! November 2, 2003
    This is a good action movie. If you have never driven a truck, then some of the details of the film probably will be lost on you. However, anyone who likes action and the trucking lifestyle should enjoy this movie. I give it "two thumbs up."

    From the opening scene, it becomes clear that director Kevin Hooks is going to serve up a John Woo style action flick as the backdrop for promoting his views on existentialist thought. Patrick Swayze, a God-fearing truck driver, serves as a modern day Soren Kierkegaard while the rougher Randy Travis counters as an atheistic Jean-Paul Sartre figure. Together, the two must deliver one last shipment to prevent harm to Swayze's wife (a Simone de Beauvoir lookalike) and daughter, all the while battling an angry Meatloaf, the rig-driving equivalent of Edmund Husserl. While trucking cross-country, Swayze continually posits that religious faith is central to an authentic existence through the guise of insisting on delivering the goods "according to plan". Travis (who, incidentally, provides some lovely songs on the score with his `Juan and Diego Band') believes that by accommodating the terrorists' plan, they are checking their own individualism. In other words, they are "condemning themselves to be free" by forcing themselves to make future directed choices. At a critical point, Travis says, "Let's do it, Black Dog," revealing the existentialist common ground that an individual's subjective experience is the focus of what it is to exist as a human being.

    Interestingly, the daughter-mother hostage scenes reveal a Nietzche-Hume debate on the habit of causality, but I won't reveal all the best bites. Look for writers Mickelberry and Vining's subtle nod to the unfortunate young death of Albert Camus during the truck-over-the-cliff scene!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Black Dog is one of the best August 25, 2004
    By Red
    When i watched Black Dog for the first time i thought is was one of the best movies i had ever seen. Now that i have seen it i watch it over and over again. What makes the movie so great is that it has awsome soundtrack to go along with it. From Randy Travis singing "My Worst Fear" and Rhett Akins singing Eddie Rabbits "Driving My Life Away". I would recomend that everyone watch this movie at least once in your life. I would expecially recomend it if you are a truck driver your-self. It is so easy to comprehend with what they go through. Even if you arnt a truck driver your-self it gives yo a little respect of what they have to go through(just hopefully not so much drama) with dealing being away from the ones that you love, for just doing the job that they choose to do.

    4.0 out of 5 stars It's Not Gonna Change The World January 6, 2005
    By djkeith
    Sometimes you've got take a movie for what it is and what it is meant to do. Although I notice a majority of the reviews here are positive, some people just don't get it.

    This is a fun, action packed 2 hours(approx.)

    The DVD widescreen transfer is awesome and the 5.1 audio will blow you away!!

    The only thing I have to say negative about the movie is the ending. Kinda leaves ya goin' "Huh?, That's it? Okay.."

    Check it out.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie. Patrick Swayze...WOW January 11, 2004
    Format:VHS Tape
    This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I bought the movie and the soundtrack is awesome. Excellent truck driving in the movie. Very exciting, it kept me intrigued through the whole movie as to what was going to happen next.The acting is very good. Patrick Swayze is such a handsome man, he was the best part of the whole movie, but everyone did a great job.Red and his men got exactly what they deserved.If you enjoy a good action movie....then you will enjoy this one.I would rate it a 10.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Exploding Trucks Are Cool! August 18, 2003
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    The movie's plot is simplistic. Jack Crews (Swayze) and Earl (Randy Travis) must deliver a load of illegal weapons or the terrorists kill Jack's family. In addition, they must fend off Red (Meat Loaf), a fanatical, Bible verse- yelling madman, and his redneck thugs, who are attempting to steal the cargo. Anyone who enjoys explosions and big rigs will like this movie. Red's men try to hijack the guns several times, and each time their attempts fail, usually with some impressive crash. In fact, all of Red's crew are either blown up, splattered all over the pavement, or crushed within a truck cab. There are some good lines about how juice causes gas and what ATF really stands for. It's not the most intellectual movie out there, and Swayze's facial expression never does change, but with the number of explosions and huge trucks, who cares? In any event, you'll find out how deadly trucking really can be.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Cross-Genre Collaboration December 6, 2001
    I must admit, I was a little skeptical about this movie, but my friend thought I would like it because I am a big Meat Loaf fan. I was very impressed with the abilities of Meat Loaf to cross into film; he is a very convinving villain; If movies have soundtrack, this film should be "Bat Out of Hell's" "Movietrack." I also thought Randy Travis was a surprisingly strong actor. It's neat to see musicians from completely different stylistic camps throw their differences aside and collaborate in such an exciting film.

    5.0 out of 5 stars BLACK DOG RULES!!!! December 5, 2001
    By A Customer
    My world changed when I saw this movie.
    First of all, that scene where Randy Travis and Meatloaf first meet became a has become a metaphor for the relationship that I have with my daughter. Even though she is young, the understanding that we have gained about each other from watching this movie is truly fascinating.
    Secondly, Patrick Swayze's character has been a motivation for me in my short story writing. In fact, since seeing the movie, I have written several characters into my stories that share various aspects of his personality, ranging the rough edges he demonstrated toward all of the women in his life to his unpredictable intellect, which ultimately saves his truck and all of mankind. (if you really think deeply enough about it)
    Anyway, if you are looking for just another movie, then go rent something like "Bounce" or "She's Got Mail"; but if you're looking for groung-breaking, life-altering adventures with a mind-bending, trucker twist, then please do yourself a favor and buy this movie.
