Things that are absolutely lovely about this movie: Jemaine Clement and Loren Horsley are HILARIOUS and Horsley is so sweet! I love the type of humor that this movie is about; that really offbeat, so uncomfortable you have to laugh. The first 2/3s of this movie builds to what could be an extremely emotional climax, and it builds at such a hypnotizing and natural pace especially under all its quirky-ness BUT what it finally delivers feels shallow and avoiding the deeper and darker themes. I would have liked to have seen the story go after true emotional confrontation and resolution, rather than grazing by it for the sake of keeping the movie light and fluffy. It feels dishonest and shallow, which are words I don't want to have to use to describe this, but I have to be honest. It hints at its heart and soul, but only shows its soul. We want the heart! Show us the heart! If you enjoy offbeat humor, you'll love this, but otherwise I think for most people it would be a pass.

Robert H (kr) wrote: I honestly wasn't expecting too much from this movie, but for what I got I was entertained and never bored. BLACK DOG is a fairly standard late-90's B-grade action movie, but its colorful characters help it to transcend the genre cliches and make it somewhat memorable. The basic plot is that Jack Crews (Patrick Swayze) is in need of some extra money and agrees to take a truck-driving job transporting some goods. Little does he know that it's some illegal guns, and soon he has people on his trail as he tries to make the delivery.I've never been too much of a Patrick Swayze fan, mostly because I don't think he can act that well. He has some charisma, for sure, but the only movie I've really enjoyed him in prior to this was ROAD HOUSE. Here, he doesn't get that kind of a role to play, but thankfully the supporting players pick up the slack and make the movie worth watching. Of those cast members, the most entertaining were Meat Loaf as a Bible-quoting madman, and Charles Dutton and Stephen Tobolowsky as a bickering FBI and ATF agent, respectively. Their short scene that opens the film is, in my opinion, the best part and sort of sets the tone for what follows, at least when they're onscreen. Randy Travis also has a supporting role, but all they can do with him is make jokes and references to his real-life career as a country singer.In general, the acting was decent for this type of movie. The action, of course, was well-done. By virtue of being produced before Hollywood became obsessed with CGI and shaky-cam, this film features real stunts, real explosions and crisp, clean action sequences done with some flair. Yes, having cars and trucks explode on impact in a collision is ridiculous, but it's also ridiculously entertaining to watch. Most importantly, the truck-driving sequences were filmed in an interesting way, and actually on the highway. Other positives I can think of are a suitably bombastic score and some gentle soundtrack cuts courtesy of Randy Travis. I don't really care for country music, but he's one person I can tolerate.The negative aspects I can mention are all fairly standard for the genre. There's a lot of plot holes, story threads that aren't followed up on (or at least satisfactorily), and of course the premise. Part of this can be chalked up to the run time. At 89 minutes, it is a little light on story and character development, but then again it didn't exactly need to be complex. Overall, this was much more fun than I was anticipating. It's by no means a good movie, but it's pretty entertaining for what it is. When all is said and done, there's a lot worse ways to spend your time. Also, they do explain what the title means, in case you were wondering.
Jason R (gb) wrote: probably the most entertaining and cliche filled attempt at a sci fi western....and Lash is ultra hot for a gunslinging whip wielding goth dominatrix type. George Takei is fun in this film and it has some laughable writing, and really silly type stuff in it, but it is a lot of fun none the less. The type of movie you munch mindlessly on popcorn late at night when you are in the mood for a sci fi or a western. Both genres can be a lot of fun when done properly. so don't expect anything groundbreaking or philosophical...just good fun and a pretty neat arm mutation scene. It is not one of the best films by any means, but it sure beats that Wil Smith big budget Wild West flop. Has a feel of an old Star Trek mixed with Gunsmoke or Bonanza or something. I enjoy it and watch it every so often.

Arcady G (br) wrote: There are a few funny moments throughout the film, but I still think that seeing it was a waste of time. The characters are underdeveloped, the plot is simplistic, directors work -- very weak. This movie proves that even great actors like Mastroianni can deliver mediocre results in the hands of a mediocre director.
Tom M (ag) wrote: A wonderful comedy and the best kind of pro-American propaganda, an homage to egalitarianism that hits all the right notes. Laughton surprises in a wonderful comic performance that includes a tear-jerking recitation of The Gettysburg Address. I was set to be disappointed because I'd waited so long to see this and heard so many raves, but I wasn't. An awfully good movie.
