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.

Voice 1: you know that so-so Stephen King film about machines coming to life and killing humans? Voice 2: you mean Maximum Overdrive? Voice 1: Yes! It has that great AC/DC song and Emilio Estevez starring. Voice 2: yeah, it was ok, but not great. Voice 1: well what if we remake it only this time without any cool stuff whatsoever? Voice 2: WTF???

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.
