I don’t give a shit what anyone says. This movie is STILL fucking GREAT. I’ve seen it probably 200 times in the last nearly 25 years. Fucking great. The late, great Patrick Swayze will forever be the baddest, Buddhist/Zen motherfucker known as…. Dalton.
You cannot deny how GOOD this movie is. The acting is superb. The fighting scenes are infinitely watchable. Good guy Dalton (Swayze) trying to fight a corrupt-ass rich twat-waffle named Brad Wesley (Ben Gazzara), and his idiot henchmen followers. It’s a tough road. A tough fight…. but Dalton (and later in the film, Sam Elliott as Wade Garrett) just might have what it takes to take ’em all down and restore peace again.
Bonus- the late, great Jeff Healey and his Band, doing what they did best (as the house band in the rowdy bar).
