Overview

The CB (citizen's band) radio fad had nearly run its course when this feel-good action film was made by director Sam Peckinpah. In the story, based on C.W. McCall's song "Convoy," a group of struggling truckers (who stay in touch by CB) run into a situation which ignites their indignation. They arrange to form a truck convoy under the leadership of the man whose CB nickname is "Rubber Duck" (Kris Kristofferson). He is the most aggrieved of the bunch, having been harassed beyond the point of endurance by Lyle Wallace (Ernest Borgnine) a blackmailing traffic cop who pursues him ever more frantically through several states after he fails to submit to the phony speed trap he had set up. As news of the truck convoy spreads, unexpected allies join the line, and the now-gigantic illegal protest becomes the subject of national news reports.

We waited a long time for this movie to come out on DVD. When it arrived the disc was loose in the folder with lots of scratches on it. We decided to see if it would play anyway. It skipped some but most disappointing was a lot of the original scenes have been cut. If you like the original movie don't waste your time or money on this DVD.

I AM SO GLAD TO SEE THIS MOVIE ON DVD. IT WAS THE FIRST TRUCKING MOVIE TO REALLY SHOW THE PROBLEMS OF THE OWNER OPERATOR IN THE EARLY DAYS. THIS MOVIE SHOWS A REAL LIFE ERA WHICH SOME PEOPLE SHOULD SEE. I THINK MORE MOVIES SHOULD BE MADE TO THIS ASPECT, AS THIS WOULD STICK IN THE MINDS OF THE YOUNGER GENERATION AS THIS ONE DID FOR ME.

I love this Movie. It was so cool. Driving trucks. And crashed the gait doing 98. And the convoy song at the end of the movie.
