Over the Top Reviews
Majorly terrible movie where Sylvester Stallone is determined to win back custody of his son at the expense of an arm-wrestling competition. Will he also gain his son's affection? Do you even care?
Lincoln Hawk is a trucker that picks up his son from military school to take him to see his dying mother after not seeing him for a long time. They have their differences and get separated when the grandfather arrives and picks up the son. The father joins an arm wrestling tournament hoping to extend his trucking career. The son comes to his rescue to help inspire him to victory.
"You've never been around when anyone needed you."
Manhem Golan, director of The Delta Force, Crime and Punishment, The Apple, Enter the Ninja, Diamonds, Over the Brooklyn Bridge, and Fortuna, delivers Over the Top. The storyline for this picture is fun and entertaining although unrealistic. The acting is okay and the cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Robert Loggia, Rick Zumwalt, Allan Graf, and Susan Blakely.
"All I want to do is hurt him, cripple him, get him off the table."
I loved this movie as a kid and saw it on Netflix and decided to watch it again for the first time in a long time. This was corny in many ways, but I loved the father son story and how they came together in the end. Overall, this is worth watching at least once.
"You ain't shit!"
