Synopsis: Meat Loaf sweats melted butter as Patrick Swayze and a fortune in automatic weapons barrel down the Atlanta highway for New Jersey, 18 wheels-a-rollin’.
Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “A 40-ton truck is a lethal weapon and veteran driver Jack Crews (Patrick Swayze) knows how to use it. Desperate for cash, he’s got one last delivery to make. The trip’s barely begun when and partner Earl (Randy Travis) discover they’re being chased by Red (Meat Loaf), a relentless fanatic who’s as deadly as he is greedy.”
What Did I Learn?: The ATF stands for “Alcohol, Tobacco and Fuckups”.
You Might Like This Movie If: You think there’s nothing more frightening than the image of Mr. Loaf quoting Scripture as he tries to run Patrick Swayze and his family off the road.
Really?: Does the FBI really provide financial assistance to material witnesses?
Rating: Black Dog is a fun bad movie. 6/10 stars.
