The story literally has a guy die in his truck and his 'son' drops out of 'college' to become a trucker and yonger in his dad's footsteps. Probably for the best seeing as how the son looked to be about the same age as his dad, must have been struggling to find a major. Well, an old man who really liked the main guy's Truxker suspects that the person that worked on his truck rigged it because he was planning on opening another terminal as the current one was fraught with corruption.
Well trucker dude's son is going to get to the bottom of it no matter how much plaid he inexplicably has to wear!
No real stars of note in this one other than Doodle's Weaver, who I only really know his name and seen a couple of films of and Larry Drake who looked so pudgy in this thing. He would actually become much more healthy looking later in life, here he is in Dark Night of the Scarecrow mode. The main guy looks like a game show host in his late 30's or early 40's and nothing like a college student and the women are all mildly attractive.
So, this is a film that you are going to have to enjoy watching the wheels on the truck go round and round because there is not too much more than that. A brawl or two and a shootout at the end involving more barrels and pushcarts than guns are about all the action to see. We also get to see a lot of the 'hero' trying to make it with this girl and then proceed to do everything in his power to be a creep to her.
This trucking man is a jerk and his woman needs to move on! Was this review helpful to you?
