The blue-collar revenge tragedy lives on in Jonathan Kaplan’s surprisingly effective tale of a young independent trucker (Jan-Michael Vincent) up against the petty graft and entrenched hoodlumism of the industry. Strongly reminiscent of Walking Tall (though I’d guess the genre has roots that go at least as far back as The Big Heat), Kaplan’s film breaks no new ground. But Vincent is stronger than usual, and Kaplan is clearly in control of his pacing and editing. With Kay Lenz, Slim Pickens, and L.Q. Jones (1975).
