Editorial Reviews

Citizen Band radio takes to the freeways for fast-lane thrills and fly-over spills. Trucker "Rubber Duck" (Kris Kristofferson) signals the big ‘10-4’ when he and his unsuspecting ridealong (Ali MacGraw) are chased through three states by a corrupt traffic cop named "Dirty Lyle" (Ernest Borgnine). The green light is sent out over the CB airwaves for a convoy of truckers to help keep the police off his trail. Director Sam Peckinpah steps on the gas for this all-action adventure jam-packed with sensational stunts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie, Poor DVD September 22, 2003
Format:DVD
I have the Parkenfiled VHS Edition (UK) of Convoy and the picture quality is much better than the DVD that I purchased from Amazon.
Amazon is offering two versions of this movie; one being "Cheezy Flicks Entertainment" and the other is the "Triumph Marketing" version.
I ordered the "Cheezy Flicks Entertainment" version of Convoy - it's terrible! I don't have any idea about the "Triumph Marketing" release of this DVD.
If you have VHS version of this great movie don't waste your money ordering the "Cheezy Flicks Entertainment" DVD version.
Movie: Perfect (5 stars)
Action: Good
Year: 1978
Time : 106 minutes
Studio: Cheezy Flicks Entertainment
DVD picture quality: Poor
DVD featurette: None
Subtitles: None
DVD user interface: Non-user friendly
DVD sound: Poor

2.0 out of 5 stars Very dissapointed! February 21, 2004
Format:DVD
I mainly purchased this DVD to have an archive of my dad's stunts. He was the stunt double for Ernest Borgnine and worked on this movie for several months in 1977. I am very dissapointed in the sound and picture quality of this movie. "CheesyFlicks" lists this as being digitally remastered... I would hate to have seen it before it was "remastered". The aspect ratio makes it look strange, it looks like it's slightly out of focus, and there are pops and buzzing throughout. I'm going to keep the DVD only because I want a record of my dads stunt work, not because of its' quality. Maybe the "Triumph Marketing" version is better, but wasn't available at the time that I ordered mine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible squashed transfer November 15, 2005
Format:DVD
Don't be fooled by the cover. This is NOT a collector's edition letterbox edition. The film's original 2.35:1 widescreen has been bizarrely changed to 1.85:1. The result is an unpleasant warped, squished image. It is such a staggeringly pointless and inept thing to do, I contacted Cheezy Flicks for an explananation. They blamed the "third party" who supplied them with the transfer. If so, shame on them for selling it anyway. A cynical piece of junk. Avoid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Convoy October 27, 2005
Format:DVD
Movie is ok, but not like the movie on T.V. This one is cut and the one that I seen on T.V. was not cut. One scene that was cut from the dvd is where the man is talking to the truckers all down the line as to why they are in the convoy and it shows a trucker mooning the camera.

2.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MOVIE-BAD DVD September 9, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All Convoy fans beware-Buy the cheaper version DVD that AMAZON offers and pass the expensive one up. I got so excited after my three week wait when my new DIGITALLY REMASTERED VERSION of this great movie showed up. I immediatly put it into my DVD player and what do I see after I push play? A very [bad] picture with the sound to match. The picture is bearable but the static you here through the whole movie is not. I just spent [money] on a DVD that sounds worse than some of my dusty, old records ... To some it up, awesome trucking movie, definatly add it to your collection-especially if you like good ol' 70's flicks. Just don't buy the SO CALLED DIGITALLY REMASTERED VERSION! RATED PG-BRIEF STRONG LANGUAGE, VIOLENCE, BRIEF NUDITY AND PLENTY OF DESTRUCTION! THIS MOVIE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE RECEIVED A PG-13 RATING IN TODAYS STANDARDS.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE classic of all classic trucking films!! April 8, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Of all the trucking movies filmed, Convoy has to be the premier! What amazes me is that one can obtain any one of the other trucking movies to come out of the '70's and '80's, yet convoy remains elusive like the finest of gems. Convoy relates to the trucking industry as much today as it did when first released. Unlike the others, Convoy remains a true classic. I rate convoy as the best trucking movie to come out of Hollywood, ever. BRING THIS MOVIE BACK!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a 5 star movie but this DVD is a 1 star October 22, 2004
Format:DVD
I just watched this DVD version of Convoy and was a little disappointed. Being a fan of the movie, I was all excited to get the DVD only to find out that some of the movie is missing; specifically the scene when the reporter is talking with the Duck. The Duck tells the reporter to ask the rest of the convoy why they are there and he does. The DVD version of this scene has a broken conversation with the Duck, then the Preacher, and back to the Duck. In addition to this the sound quality is not that great and a few times it is mute for a second. At the very beginning of the movie the video jumps once or twice but is good for the most part. The DVD says it is "Digitally Remastered" to me it looks like cheezyflicks.com recorded this movie from HBO and "Digitally Remastered" their copy.

Personally I would recommend finding a good VHS version and burn it to DVD yourself or wait till it is released from the film industry.

1.0 out of 5 stars CONVOY by cheazy flicks April 4, 2005
Format:DVD
I just bought this item. This is a great movie itself but whatever cheazyflicks did to it is sad. I can't even watch the movie because after 20 minutes the picture gets all disturted and starts pausing and the sound also freezes and is distorted. The movie itself is great buy the VHS version and you'll be better off.
