An immensely enjoyable slice of romanticised fisticuffs, this is a Western in every respect except the stetsons and six guns.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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

Swayze kicks some serious ass

'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."

Mindless entertainment of the highest order.

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

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.

The director's name is "Rowdy," and that's all you need to know about this redneck rampage. Yee-ha!

This titter-worthy picture is basically like 1988's Cocktail with multiple fractures added for good measure.

The Peruvian marching powder is all but dusting the corners of the frame throughout 'Road House,' which may as well go into a museum for '80s artifacts.
June 25, 2013
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.
January 8, 2008
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.

January 8, 2008
Its vigilante justice, lawlessness and wanton violence feel ludicrous in a modern setting.

the gayest thing next to a gladiator movie
