The world of truckers is a world that hardly anyone knows about, unless you’re a trucker or if you play those trucking simulator games. And if I were a trucker, I would keep the mystery alive. We see them every day, going to work, driving on the highway, etc. We tend to pass them, or (if we drive slow) they will pass us. They also communicate with each other on the CB radios. At least that’s what we see in the movies. Which brings us to our movie review.
“Convoy” is an action movie, directed by Sam Peckinpah, and stars Kris Kristofferson (as Martin “Rubber Duck” Penwald) and Ali MacGraw (as Melissa). The movie is based on the song “Convoy” by C.W. McCall. You’ve heard the song in at least some capacity and if you haven’t then you will certainly hear it about 3 times during this movie.
