A weapons loaded truck is shadowed by FBI and ATF. It explodes and kills the driver. Jack, just out of prison, is pressured into driving another truck from Atlanta to NJ. Things get rough when hijacking attempts are made.
In an unexplained act of charity, Jeanne Holman, picks up an injured, apparent tramp and takes him home to care for him little realizing who he was, or the effect he would have on her life and those of her family.

In the wake of tragedy, a renowned NY dance company is on the brink of collapse. After leaving the dance world for good, Travis, Chrissa and Max have one last chance to re-connect with the passion and prove that miracles really can happen.

Ex-truck driver Jack Crews (Patrick Swayze) has just been released from prison for vehicular manslaughter after losing control and hitting a stranded motorist. His family is in danger of losing their house, so he takes a job from his boss driving a truck up from Atlanta "off the books". Little does he know, the trailer is loaded with illegal artillery, and Red (Meat Loaf) is hell bent on hijacking it. Jack teams up with Earl (Randy Travis) to deliver the load and save his family.Written by

When Crews is telling the story of his accident on the Atlanta run, he states that he was running up I-75. If he was running Atlanta to New Jersey or New York, as would be assumed if he was trying to make it home for his daughter's birthday, he would not have been on 75 as that would take him through Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and eventually through Michigan.

Yes, it has many a plot hole. Yes, the acting isn't Oscar worthy. And yes, it's a cheesy B-grade movie. But guess what? I like it. "Black Dog" is a silly trucker action/thriller topped off with comedy, both intentional and unintentional, and a really, really cool country music score. The reason why so many people don't like it is simply 'cause they are taking it far too seriously. If you're like me and have had plenty of warning NOT to take "Black Dog" so seriously (thanks to the other IMDb members), then you'll like "Black Dog".
In short, DO NOT expect "Black Dog" to be something like "Donnie Darko" and/or "Fight Club". Don't take it seriously and you may just have a rollicking good time, especially if you are a fan of anyone who stars in it.
