Audience Reviews for Trucks
How do you improve on Stephen King? Well you can't and to try to do so would be folly, as demonstrated by the re-make of Maximum Overdrive, Trucks. In this version several trucks mysteriously come to life and start attacking a group of people at a local Nevada tourist center. The tone of the film is way too series and the acting is incredible poor. A lifeless, dull scrap heap, Trucks is an atrocious adaptation of Stephen King's work.
This remake of Stephen King short story, Maximum Overdrive, is less scary than Emilio Estevez's film. Poor acting and a silly plot are only partly redeemed by a chilling ending.
Why bother re-making 'Maximum Overdrive'? This is just another of the universe's imponderables, but stick with this movie, your patience will be rewarded with what must be the funniest movie death ever: a gormless mailman is battered to death by a Tonka toy, and the gore sprays like raspberry jam from a doughnut. In the cast is the marvellous Brendan Fletcher, one of the finest actors of his generation, and again the question recurs:WHY WHY WHY?
