Steven Spielberg directs this high-velocity thriller about a motorist terrorized by an evil truck. Spielberg's first full-length movie, Duel, helped jumpstart the director's big-screen career, with a gripping, action-packed story hailed by critics as a film that "belongs on the classics shelf reserved for top suspensers" (Dailey Variety). Dennis Weaver stars as the traveling salesman waging a desperate battle for survival after he is mysteriously singled out. Praised for its deft use of relentlessly mounting psychological tension, Duel features one of the most uniquely terrifying "characters" in movie history: a massive, roaring, 40-ton truck with sheer menace. A few years later, the action of Spielberg's blockbuster hit Jaws would echo Duel's tale of a lone hero in a heart-stopping fight to the finish against a monstrous, inhuman foe.

It is excellent & worth having in one's collcetion!
The audio was just as good, if not better. I watched it in DTS HD Master Audio 5.1. and it sounded amazing. Clear and loud. It made my soundbar sound bigger than it is.
If you like Duel, you'll want the Blu-ray.
This is a truly great film. The suspense is built gradually and Dennis' monologues throughout the film are perfectly done. It is incredible how the director was able to use multiple angles to avoid the monotony which could easily develop in a movie centered on a driver. Not seeing the truck driver is, of course, brilliant as well. My wife had never seen this and she enjoyed it as much as I did.
I think my favorite scenes are how the evil truck driver deals with the school bus (no spoilers but it isn't what you might think) and the scene my title refers to. I still sometimes say that out loud in traffic (but that's probably something I shouldn't admit to!)
The extra features on this disc were great as well. It was fun learning the details especially how quickly the shoot for this film was done.
Overall, an impressive film which stands the test of time.
