I bought this film again after lending to someone and not getting back. It was a film that i enjoyed and have watched so many times and do repeatedly, Meatloaf as always brings his character to life as only he can, Patrick Swayze bringing his tormented character to life under repeated threats to his family and Randy Travis just remains the same expecting him to burst into song any minute but always enjoyable in a film. Overall a film i never get tired of watching and really lightweight but enjoyable which makes a change from some films that are out there.

I'm always suspicious of films that start with a car chase and a host of explosions. Black Dog takes this initial scene just one stage further by having not only a car chase but a truck chase as well.
Unfortunately when happens then is the rest of the hour an a half is just more of the same with trucks, motorbikes, 4x4s, cars, guns, bullets and more explosions littering the screen keeping up "entertainment"
OK, let's not be too harsh, this is an action chase movie, and on those terms alone it certainly delivers. Patrick Swazye plays Jack Crews, a recently released prisoner (vehicular manslaughter) who is given he chance to earn big bucks by driving a "shipment" cross country for his less than trustworthy boss. Facing foreclosure on his mortgage and potentially losing his house Jack takes the job and is hooked up with a truck from a certain character called Red (Meat Loaf), a bible quoting, coupon clipping good old southern boy. It's not long before all isn't as innocent as it seems with a rare old motley crew, led my Re, trying to get their hands on the cargo. Taking a look in the trailer it would seem that poor old misled Jack is transporting boxes of illegal AK-47s, which soon means that a combination of FBI and other law enforcement agencies are tracking Jack down.
There's no real reason to explain what happens next as we've seen it a dozen or more times before in other similar movies, needless to say that it all turns out ok for Jack in the end.
Swazye is one of those actors, that no matter how corny the roll or how cheesy the movie, we still root for him and stay with him to the end. This time there some quite nice buddy-buddy moments with Randy Travis and Gabriel Casseus who both take turns in the cab of Jack's lorry.
All in all, this does exactly what it says on the tin. You can criticise it all you like for the repetition of the chases and explosions and the performances aren't exactly Oscar standard, but it is a lot of fun. My favourite moment has to be when Jack finds the foreclosure notice in his home. Holding this piece of paper that has "FORECLOSURE" written in big bold red type on the top he exclaims "Foreclosure?" out loud to himself, just in case we didn't get what was going on. Subtlety of a house brick!

This movie has to be one of the ultimate road trips for years with some decent stunts. Swayze plays hard up Jack who has seen ' A Black Dog' which means he's almost crashed by being to tired at the wheel. So his truck license is frozen and he cant pay his bills and make a living. In desperation he takes a job with cash in hand and a truck to move what he things are normal goods. However chaos ensues and he ends up gun running by accident and his wife is then held to ransom. There are some great truck stunts here with Meat Loaf playing the bad guy. Some of the stunts are let down by clumsy editing so you see the gas rams and roll cages and pirotechnics. But just when you think the movie is over it starts up again with Jacks life on the line. All in all this is a great buy and worthy of any action movie collection and for Swayze fans.
