This is not a good movie. But viewed in the right frame of mind, it is not a boring one, either.

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

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

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

...your quintessential dumb, macho, guy's movie, with gratuitous sex and violence at every turn.

Road House lays out its story with the subtlety of a wrestling match, and probably with less sharpness or savvy.

Though it doesn't say so anywhere in the film, Road House must be set on another planet where the inhabitants resemble humans. This can't be the world I live in.

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

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

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

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.

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

Very cool, Very fast, and more action than the L.A Freeway. Perfect Popcorn Entertainment.
