Starring Sylvester Stallone, Robert Loggia, Susan Blakely, Rick Sumwalt, David Mendenhall
Corny, overly ’80s sports drama about a truck driver named Lincoln Hawk (Stallone) who wants to connect with his young son after being absent all of his life. Somehow, this ultimately leads to a high stakes arm-wrestling tournament, which plays out in traditional sports movie fashion. Stallone is often criticized for his limited range as an actor. He can only play two characters, but, to his credit, he’s great when he is playing one of those two characters, as he is in this film. His performance is enough to elevate this cheesy arm-wrestling movie to a level that’s watchable.
