The Five Best Classic Trucking Movies
Earlier today, the management team at Balch Logistics got into a heated argument over what the best trucking movie of all time is. We couldn’t have predicted how many strong opinions there would be, so instead of choosing one, we decided to share our top five favorite classic trucking movies.
JOY RIDE (2001)
In this classic trucking movie, Paul Walker and Steve Zahn go on a road trip to New Jersey to pick up a girl, but after playing a CB-radio prank on an unassuming truck driver, the travelers learn he is actually a killer.
MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE (1986)
In this classic trucking movie, Maximum Overdrive epitomizes the zombie craze with a tale about semi-trailers that transform into killing machines after a comet’s dust brings machines to life.
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA (1986)
In this classic trucking movie, Kurt Russell plays a truck driver who helps rescue his friend’s fiancé from San Francisco’s hellish Chinatown.
BIG RIG (2007)
In this classic trucking movie, contemporary American life is captured in a documentary about long-haul truck drivers.
BLACK DOG (1998)
In this classic trucking movie, Patrick Swayze plays an ex-con who takes a job as a truck driver and discovers it’s loaded with illegal weapons.
