Audience Reviews for Tank

Garner really has to carry the water for this generic melodrama but I'll be damned if I wasn't rooting for him all the way.

As in most movies in the 80's its slow to get started bit o think it's worth the wait. Great ending.

Initially, what got me to watch this flick was the poster campaign along with its taglines. "If you just want to hate, you can come up with all kinds of reasons." Despite what impressions you might make from those images (probably similar to my own), this film is actually a good old-fashioned story about people in middle-America. While I don't want to spoil anything, I will say that the tank is not the climax of this story...
