ROAD HOUSE Movie Review (1989 – Patrick Swayze) – REEL ACTION

In 1987, Patrick Swayze won hearts and became the male heartthrob of the eighties in DIRTY DANCING. So what would be his follow-up? Becoming an action icon in the amazing cult-classic ROAD HOUSE. The legend of Crazy Swayze was born in what producer Joel Silver promised would be the greatest drive-in B-movie of all time, and he was right. Swayze plays Dalton, a “cooler” – basically meaning he’s the John Wick of bar bouncers – who’s hired to clean up a notorious bar called “The Double Deuce”, only to run afoul of the villainous Wesley (Ben Gazzara), who rules the town with an iron fist. Along the way, he falls in love with the town doctor (the gorgeous Kelly Lynch), with his erstwhile mentor (Sam Elliot) in tow. A good time is guaranteed for all in this latest installment of REEL ACTION!
