I had been so certain of my strategy to see it, detest it, and write a critical review. For starters, another remake in an unending series of them. And the original 1989 Road House holds a unique place in the pantheon of action movies because it is so hilariously terrible that it evokes a sense of madness akin to Mystery Science Theater 3000. Returning to that film is an odd experience that quickly transports one back to the largely repulsive popular cinema of the 1980s.

Looking back, some of the major motion pictures from that era are things of filthy amazement and humor because they were so incredibly hideous, so poorly crafted, so grotesquely foolish, and so ideologically repugnant when they were first released.

In case you missed it, the story revolves around Patrick Swayze’s character, a “top cooler,” who gets paid to clean up a honky-tonk in Jasper, Missouri that has been taken over by the corrupt element in the area. Because of Tom Cruise’s 1980s smash blockbuster Top Gun, every action movie hero had to be a top dog and virtually well-known all over the world.

In this movie, a security guard with a higher title may wow everyone just by introducing himself as “Dalton.” Some variation of “Not the Dalton” is the response. His secret weapons for “cooling” stiff joints include a philosophy degree and a strong martial arts background that enable him to literally rip lesser men’s necks out. I’m chuckling as I type this. That’s the type of film that it is.

The fan-favorite “Be nice” speech, Sam Elliott, and perhaps the dishonest local gangster played by Ben Gazzara having his best life while driving his luxury automobile in lazy S shapes down the main road chanting “Sh-Boom!” are the only things that are blatantly wonderful about Road House ’89. Everything else is adored trash and high camp.

The odd thing about this action movie is that it was released exclusively online. Director Liman objected to this decision in a letter to Amazon executives back in January, stating that the movie deserved a proper theatrical run after receiving positive test screenings. “Amazon asked me and the film community to trust them and their public statements about supporting cinemas, and then they turned around and are using Road House to sell plumbing fixtures,” Liman wrote.
