Patrick Swayze's third personal favorite underrated best action film he ever did! (by ivo-cobra8)
Black Dog 1998 is Patrick Swayze's underrated unappreciated explosive, nonstop high-speed adrenaline-pumping highway road war action film! This is my third favorite personal favorite Patrick Swayze's film! The first two are Road House and Steel Dawn, but Black Dog is my third favorite film and I love this film to death! Just recently finished watching this and I love it so damn much. I love Patrick Swayze's characters Nomad, Dalton and Jack Crews those are all my favorite characters! Directed by Kevin Hooks the director who directed awful Die Hard copycat film Passenger 57 and <more>
Fled, this film is very decent and a damn solid good action film of the 90's and finally Kevin Hooks made a movie that I love. "The only way to stay alive is to keep moving." Plot: An ex-con takes a job driving a truck cross country. What he doesn't know is that the truck is filled with illegal weapons and now he must fight to survive and save his family. Patrick Swayze is back and he teams up with Randy Travis and Meat Loaf 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.This film is for all of truck drivers out there, this movie is great not to many movies like this. Trucker that does not know of this movie, it is not a trucker. This movie it should be in every driving school, great movie. The acting in this movie is very decent and solid, Patrick Swayze is always awesome and fantastic! Randy Travis as Patrick's partner was excellent! Meat Loaf as the villain in this movie was fantastic! Jack Crews Patrick Swayze is an ex con and a truck driver who desperately needs the money to support his family and pay off his deb for the house. He accepts the offer from his manager to make a delivery from Atlanta to New Jersey a lot's of toilets' for $10,000 , so he thinks, this is cool easy money so he does what he is told too, on he's trip he find's out that he was set up and he is transporting illegal guns and now he has to fight for his life and for his family. Black Dog is Patrick Swayze's best underrated highway speed action movie that was released before The Fast and the Furious come out, it is an action film of the late 90's that I will always cherish and love to death. This movie is very underrated solid action film. I love it to death. I have this movie on Blu-ray the same Patrick Swayze movie I have on Blu-ray are Steel Dawn, Road House and this film, they are all in my collection, but I don't have Uncommon Valor because that film was never released on Blu-ray, I am still waiting on the release. Black Dog is a 1998 action film directed by Kevin Hooks and starring Patrick Swayze. The film tells the story of a trucker and ex-con who is manipulated into transporting illegal arms. The film co-stars musicians Randy Travis and Meat Loaf.R.I.P. - Patrick Swayze 1952 - 2009 I really miss you so much and I wish you could do more bad ass action movies, I am your biggest fan and so was my mom we all miss you and we all love you, I love you to death! Black Dog why doesn't THAT film get the cult/appreciation/notice of this POS , Steel Dawn underrated and Road House are my top 3 personal favorite Patrick Swayze movies he ever did! This movie get's 10 out 10 for Patrick Swayze's best underrated action movie he ever did, alongside with Road House! But Road House for me will be his best action classic martial arts film a film of my childhood that I will always cherish it.
When this movie came out, the usual pooh-poohers whined and complained about how it had a dumb script, a paper-thin plot, and cardboard characters. I wanted to smack them all upside the head for stating the obvious. Duh! That's the whole point! Patrick Swayze has made some very good dramas Ghost, City of Joy , and some very cheesy ones To Wong Foo and he knows the difference. Anyone who tries to take this movie seriously is missing the point. This one is a terrific guilty pleasure, with over-the-top performances by Swayze and his musician co-stars Meat Loaf, Randy Travis , and some <more>
spectacular chase scenes complete with some truly cheesy touches every automobile that crashes explodes, regardless of whether the gas tank is actually damaged or not . Trust me, this one's worth checking out, as long as you check your brain at the door.
I saw this movie on cable and never saw it in theaters but it was on at 2:00 am and I had a test in my Philosophy class. I said "screw the test" and watched this movie.I have never been a fan of Mr. Swayze. Didn't see Dirty Dancing or that movie where he plays a tough bouncer. Didn't want to. But this movie is very good for what it is worth. First of all, I compare the storyline to Smokey and the Bandit....except minus the humor and lamentably the actors. The movie is about a ex-con trying to save his house by driving a truck full of illegal weapons across the eastern <more>
seaboard. You've got some great people in this movie +Patrick Swayze: he looks like he could be a truck driver +Randy Travis: who I admit I didn't recognize with the beard. I have no idea why he grew it +Possibly 50 Cent's brother. No doubt..when you see this man who isn't related you'll hear Wanksta begin playing +And the best Bloated Bible Thumping Meat "Old Ass Bat Out Of Hell" Loaf..who I cant believe actually CHOSE that name. This movie is not geared towards film buffs nor does it pretend to do so. This movie is for those who love the road and Cannonball Run the first one only, jeez or Smokey and The Bandit Numbers 1 and 3..Dom Deluise and that retarded elephant killed number 2 The rest of the characters are a joke especially the FBI agents...ever seen Pardon The Interruption? but this movie is nothing more than an exciting and hard to stop watching road classic. Plus I live near where they drive the truck through how about some love for South Carolina and N. Carolina looks amazing in the movie So In conclusion, don't put down your Dead Poets Society or your Good Will Hunting for this, but sit back with a beer and enjoy this modern classic.
Very unrealistic, but action-packed (by Die Hard-3)
I really enjoyed this movie. I do prefer intelligent thrillers, but I don't mind unrealistic stuff if it's good. It was surprising to see Patrick Swayze was in this movie, seeing that it's so unrealistic and it's what would seem like a fool's errand in the eyes of the critics, but I credit his performance. It is about a truckie who is driving a truck filled with firearms, while guys come along, try to kill them, and get the guns. Meat Loaf's acting performance wasn't great, he should have just made a contribution to the soundtrack, and I thought he was over-the-top <more>
at the end, racing a truck, wildly raving and chanting bible verses. But the action scenes are good, despite the unrealism. Explosions happen when they wouldn't normally, and shooting people doesn't seem to do anything but make them wince. At one stage, Patrick Swayze is beating a guy up on the truck, and Meat Loaf comes along in his ute-type vehicle, and shoots him in his arm. He winces, but he keeps punching with the same vengeance and strength as before. Despite lack of credibility, it was an exciting adventure and was a film about truck-driving, which I have never actually seen in a movie before. Overall, it was great and the chase scenes are very well-done sometimes. If you aren't expecting too much and don't mind unrealistic things, and you like action movies, see this.
I must have watched this movie dozens of times and each time I find something I never noticed before or wasn't paying attention too, During the whole gun running trip Patrick is driving a Peterbilt with what looked like a standard 48 foot dry box. They show an action scene driving down a state highway. When it is reported to the FBI and DEA it is stated that they were wrecking on an Interstate Highway. The closest scene I have noticed that looked anywhere like or near NJ was just before the show down and the truck was driving up the helix coming out of the Lincoln Tunnel. For that to <more>
happen they would have had to be coming out of NYC. Last but not least when the exchange is being made and Travis is up in the crane the load is no longer in the over the road trailer and in a shipping container. Considering that they were supposed to do that in about 2 hours there was no way they could have off loaded the load off the trailer and placed it in to a shipping container.Overall I still love this movie and tend to watch it when ever it is on TV.
I like this movie, and I ain't afraid to say so. (by robynh-4)
Yes, it has many a plot hole. Yes, the acting isn't Oscar worthy. And yes, it's a cheesy B-grade movie. But guess what? I like it. "Black Dog" is a silly trucker action/thriller topped off with comedy, both intentional and unintentional, and a really, really cool country music score. The reason why so many people don't like it is simply 'cause they are taking it far too seriously. If you're like me and have had plenty of warning NOT to take "Black Dog" so seriously thanks to the other IMDb members , then you'll like "Black Dog". In short, <more>
DO NOT expect "Black Dog" to be something like "Donnie Darko" and/or "Fight Club". Don't take it seriously and you may just have a rollicking good time, especially if you are a fan of anyone who stars in it.
I am no fan of the stars of this movie or a truckdriving buff or interested in country music not that that's overly relevant. I borrowed this tape with low expectations but was happily surprised by how entertaining it was. What has happened to Patrick Swayze? I thought he did a good job acting in both Donnie Darko and now this. THIS film is what goofy, illogical action flicks are supposed to be. This isn't simply a music video stretched out to an hour-and-a-half. This director actually knows how to make a movie. The plot ain't deep but there IS a plot, which is important. The <more>
ideas are dopey but the actors aren't simply laughing their way through but rather they treated this like a serious work. The actress who plays Swayze's wife has a style which usually annoys me but she, too, was ok in this thing. Even the little bits of country music didn't bother me. A stupid finale? Sure, but even that was fun. Wow.
Meatloaf, burning diesel and one angry black dog! (by buzznzipp1995)
No truer words, Swayze looked weathered. But I guess some truckers just do. I sort of enjoyed the story, the beginning definitely ignites the rest of the action. This has some 'skill' linked-up in the driving, I learned a couple cool things about Big Rigs, that I didn't realize before however, I haven't seen diesels doing stuff like that since, 'Breakdown' 'CONVOY' or 'Duel'. Patrick is pretty much always fun to see act in any movie that he is in, other than the banter back and forth from the Evil-Graeme Beckel's character, who had taken his wife <more>
played by Brenda Strong, the woman walking down the street only in a 'bra' that caused 'Kramer' from Seinfeld to crash his car T.V.s Seinfeld and daughter, then making it through that Hellish chase situation and accident, only to lose a new found friend 'Sonny' the F.B.I. man, suddenly being sideswiped by The heavier-weight-coupon clipping-Jimmy Swaggart-wannabe-evil boss Singer rock star/actor Meatloaf at the end of this flick, Jack Swayze can't get an even break. However this is how most big budget Studio production houses usually take it into their hands to change a movie script until the believable is now ridiculous, usually at the end of a movie. Kind of like when Sidney J Furie made "Superman IV" and the Studio execs slashed his budget in half...this time however at pretty much the last minute, before scene shooting got started. But Blackdog is entertaining and fun,the cast is a great cast. Heck with a good beer it gets even better. But please if you must drink, stay at home and be nice to those around you.
