BLACK DOG (Released in Theaters in the USA 1998)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsìììì 

Black Dog—not great but fun to watch—reminds, due to its similarity, to some of the Burt Reynolds and Sally Field trucker movies. Watch for some tight, creatively fresh, large vehicular stunts used in the movie. The film has the potential to be a cult classic due to its presentation. It harmonizes  Patrick Swayze, Gabriel Casseus, Randy Travis, Brian Vincent, Brenda Strong, Erin Broderick, Meat Loaf, and Charles S. Dutton into an entertaining watch that does not drain audience energy with its light appeal to emotional involvement.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This movie completely works when an audience is in the mood to watch a trucking movie that includes mobsters and high level law policing.
