January 8, 2008
Swayze is up to a part that requires him merely to show his muscles and dexterity, but Gazzara is trapped in his hopelessly evil caricature, leaving Sam Elliott (in a too-limited role) to provide the film's only real charm.

Vulgarity isn't the movie's main vice. Hypocrisy is.
December 6, 2005
Mostly about kicking, slugging, gouging and guzzling.
March 26, 2019
It's pointless, mean-spiritede, excessively violent and, perhaps worst of all, just plain dumb.

Can Swayze sustain a lead role? Yes. Can he sustain Road House? No.
January 1, 2000
This is not a good movie. But viewed in the right frame of mind, it is not a boring one, either.

Eventually it mutates into a paranoid revenge plot that might be called Walking Short.
May 23, 2003
A forgettable fist-flinging fable that's as ridiculously raucous as it is relevant. Swayze flexes his movie muscles needlessly in this dingy and disjointed drama
| Original Score: 2/5
January 8, 2008
Its vigilante justice, lawlessness and wanton violence feel ludicrous in a modern setting.
January 30, 2003
...your quintessential dumb, macho, guy's movie, with gratuitous sex and violence at every turn.

I hated this movie as a teen. Haven't seen it since.

This titter-worthy picture is basically like 1988's Cocktail with multiple fractures added for good measure.

The Peruvian marching powder is all but dusting the corners of the frame throughout 'Road House,' which may as well go into a museum for '80s artifacts.

Road House lays out its story with the subtlety of a wrestling match, and probably with less sharpness or savvy.
January 1, 2000
Though it doesn't say so anywhere in the film, Road House must be set on another planet where the inhabitants resemble humans. This can't be the world I live in.

Road House is much funnier than most comedies, until it turns vile instead of just stupid.
