There's nothing like a caterpillar engine
***SPOILERS*** Better then you would have expected action flick staring the late, who sadly left us in 2009, Patrick Swayze as trucker Jack Crews who's house as well as future of his family in on the line if he doesn't come up with $10,000.00 to pay off him home mortgage or else end up being thrown out on the street. With his commercial license suspended due to a vehicular homicide conviction Jack has no choice but to take a job gun running military hardware from Atlanta to Newark for the mob that if caught can put him away for the rest of his life.
While in transit the person who organized the gun running operation Frank Cutler,Graham Beckel, has a falling out with his partner Red, Meat Loaf, putting Jack behind the eight ball with Red doing everything to keep him from making the trip. That includes Red having Jackk's wife & daughter Melanie & Tracy, Brenda Strong & Erin Broderick, kidnapped and threatened with death if he tries to successfully complete it! Non-stop action on the highways and side roads from Georgia to New Jersey with Jack pulling out all stops and wrecking some dozen cars and trucks as he's chased by Red's goons as well as the FBI and ATF lead by Agents Allen "Butterball" Ford, Charles C. Dutton, and Joe McClaren,Stephen Tobolowsky, trying to-For different reasons-to stop him.
****SPOILERS**** Very shocking and unexpected final just when you thought that the movie was finally over with a fired up Red who already had his goose cooked by Jack-And by now having completely lost it- and the ATF & FBI making a last desperate attempt to knock off Jack and his family just for sheer and naked revenge. That in Jack dumping all the $3000,000.00 worth in military equipment on his truck with the help of his trucker partner Earl, Randy Travis, into Chesapeake Bay only to get himself burned to a crisp and-as for his Meatloaf cooked well done-pulverized in the end.
