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.

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.'

...it'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.

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

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.
