Road House is startling because of the intensity of its violence and because of Swayze's mindless posturing.

All Road House amounts to is a botched southern, and it's not worth a detour.

Eventually it mutates into a paranoid revenge plot that might be called Walking Short.

An immensely enjoyable slice of romanticised fisticuffs, this is a Western in every respect except the stetsons and six guns.

April 15, 2008


Good-natured enough, but essentially an excuse for lots of mindless violence perpetrated by one-dimensional characters.

Swayze kicks some serious ass

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Swayze is up to a part that requires him merely to show his muscles and dexterity, but Gazzara is trapped in his hopelessly evil caricature, leaving Sam Elliott (in a too-limited role) to provide the film's only real charm.

Its vigilante justice, lawlessness and wanton violence feel ludicrous in a modern setting.

Badass brawls, broken beer bottles, booming beats, big boobs and bad blood.

'Road House' is a terrible movie, and by 'terrible' I mean 'awesome.'

Reel Film Reviews's hard to go wrong with a film that features such choice bits of dialogue as "nobody ever wins a fight," "be nice until it's time to not be nice," and, of course, "pain don't hurt."

I hated this movie as a teen. Haven't seen it since.

Frank Ochieng

A forgettable fist-flinging fable that's as ridiculously raucous as it is relevant. Swayze flexes his movie muscles needlessly in this dingy and disjointed drama

| Original Score: 2/5

Road House is much funnier than most comedies, until it turns vile instead of just stupid.

Road House is rootin' tootin' moo-vee makin' at its best. Hats off for working not one but two huge explosions into a movie about bar-fights.
