Black Dog (1998)

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”.

Really?: Does the FBI really provide financial assistance to material witnesses?

Rating: Black Dog is a fun bad movie. 6/10 stars.

  1. EES,

    Wasn't this the movie where a succession of villains tried to apprehend Patrick Swayze? It was like, "SEND CARS AFTER HIM!" and they got blown up, so it was then, "SEND MOTORCYCLES AFTER HIM!" and then they got blown up, so it was then "SEND 18 WHEELER TRUCKS AFTER HIM!" and I think you know what happens next. Finally the boss goes after him and he gets blown up also.

    I can't recall where I first saw this movie but I have a vague recollection of seeing it in a movie theatre. I don't think I've seen it since.

    FYI I really want to watch "Firewalker".
