Movie Info

For Jack Crews, the rules of the road are simple: Don't look at the cargo. Don't question the route. And don't stop moving, if you want to stay alive. Jack's driving days were over until he got an offer he couldn't refuse. But what was expected to be a straight run up north has taken some unexpected turns. Now, the stakes are high as gun runners, government agents and a fleet of monstrous 18-wheelers pursue Jack in an intense highway duel.

Hey, you like 18-wheelers (Have you driven a big Ford lately?), country-and-western music, and an All-American meal (as in meat loaf), then here's a film for you.

If you've ever wondered what really goes on in those truck-weighing stations, "Black Dog" will be an edifying experience. ...But those people who manage to pass the Freightliner lot without drooling will probably find "Black Dog" pretty much bites.

Forget the Mortal Kombat movies--this trucksploitation flick is the closest the movies has come to video games.

Audience Reviews for Black Dog

Director Kevin Hooks' movie is a cheesy but sort of fun action flick that could have been better but also could have been worse. Some of the truck crashes are impressive although the actual chase scenes lack a little spark, they are okay but not quite as exciting as I'd have liked.
The acting is OK, Patrick Swayze looks bored & embarrassed, Meat Loaf is Meat Loaf while Charles S. Dutton puts in a funny performance as a FBI agent.

With apologies to Andy Micak, I defy all of Flixster to find a Swayzier movie than this: it's worse than road house. How did Swayze EVER get work??

This is arguably the funniest movie ever made, but you're not supposed to be laughing... particularly bad are the bit players drudged up from community theatre to play Swayze's wife, the Chief Investigator and loveable loser Wes. While the action sequences were bearable - and thank god this movie was mostly action sequences - it is probably the worst-acted movie ever made... when Meat Loaf turns in a film's strongest performance, you're in serious trouble.

Another undderated movie!! Patrick Swayze is alright, but the co-stars are very good - namely Meatloaf as the bible-spouting raving lunatic! Good old truck driving action!!!
