"Pain don't hurt."A cult classic in every sense of the word, 1989's Road House embodies the spirit of '80s action cinema - it delivers rousing action, roundhouse kicks, a catchy soundtrack, quotable one-liners, gratuitous nudity, monster trucks, and a charismatic lead performance from the late Patrick Swayze in his prime. Although inherently cheesy, what elevates Road House above many other action... read more

An average movie

I already saw this movie but since it was ages ago, I thought I should check it out again. Well, to be honest, I didnโ€™t remember much and I have to admit that it was actually not so bad after all. I mean, I still think that most of the plot was rather idiotic. Indeed, basically, it was some kind of modern Western involving some bouncers which wasnโ€™t really a great mix. However, above all thank... read more

"Being a person whose job for a few years involved dealing with people in a way that made them do things they didn't always want to do (admittedly in a much less intense and less violent environment than this film!) I found myself intrigued by the opening hour of Road House as Swayze goes about converting a crappy bar to a fancy bar by teaching bouncers how to treat customers. It's a thread dropped a bit too soon to engage with a traditional evil carpetbagger -story where said carpetbagger holds "

"First viewing - Aug. 30th Patrick Swayze double feature Actually this was technically my second viewing of Road House, but given that I remembered almost none of what happens I'm counting this as a first view. I know back in the early '90s I spent the night at a friend's house & he put this on for us to watch, but either I paid fleeting attention to it or it failed entirely to stick with me. Now it's possible that the latter is the case because I wouldn't call this a great film by any means. "
