King may have not enjoyed directing this adaptation of his story "Trucks", but this is a fun one since it has AC/DC doing their music along with Estevez kicking some trucker ass & everyone surviving the weirdness that has "man vs. machine" going on.
"I ain't ever seen a hero with their ass in the air like that." Everything about this movie rock n rolls my soul. The ACDC, how they hold that rocket launcher, non-electronic valves turning themselves. Sure, it's terrible. But I can count on two hands how many King stories-turned-movies actually turned out good. It's got the perfect b-movie campiness. It's a bummer that Stephen King is bad at making movies, though.
A guilty pleasure film of epic proportions and necessary viewing for Stephen King fans who need to see and read all he has done. It is bad, slow at times, laughable and stupid, but still it has some kind of sick charm to it and the Green Goblin truck is cool as is the AC/DC soundtrack. I loved this as a kid.
