SAM & SWAYZE!!! CREEPS WHO CROSS THEM ARE CRAYZE!!!
April 2, 2018
“ROAD HOUSE" This is THE iconic cult classic movie that won 4 Oscars in 1989. Patrick Swayze and Sam Elliott are at their heroic kickass best. The great supporting cast headed by a sadistic Ben Gazzara as the tyrannical smug landowner is perfect; as is Kevin Tighe's white-haired dignified club owner, and the smartly sexy Kelly Lynch. Add a motley group of bar dwellers that can never again be duplicated, and you have a vintage action-packed epic movie.
The theme of vigilante justice is always highly entertaining and sweet. Nevertheless, it leaves a bitter aftertaste when we reflect on the aftermath and legacy of revenge. The dead friend is still dead. Killing the killers just added more dead bodies. And after all these centuries, it begs the question,,, Is humanity any nearer to evolving into a more humane species? This movie sadly answers that question with a loud and resounding..”Hell No!!!”. (If this review was helpful in any way, please click on the 'Helpful' key below. Thanks).
