    Synopsis


    Over the Top
    After winning the heavyweight boxing championship and single-handedly winning the war in Vietnam for America, Sylvester Stallone moves on to a real challenge -- arm wrestling -- in this action drama with a family undercurrent. Lincoln Hawk (Stallone) is a long-haul truck driver who years ago abandoned his wife Christina (Susan Blakely) and their son Michael (David Mendenhall). Hawk comes to see the error of his ways and wants to reconcile with his loved ones, only to discover that Christina is in the hospital suffering through the last stages of a terminal illness. Her wealthy and powerful father, Jason Cutler (Robert Loggia), has come to hate Hawk for the way he left his daughter to fend for herself, and he wants full custody of the boy upon her death. But Hawk is desperate to mend his relationship with Michael. He kidnaps the boy, and as Jason's hired goons give chase, Hawk points his truck toward the one place where he can win the money and recognition that will earn his son's respect -- a wrist-wrestling championship in Las Vegas. Actor Sylvester Stallone also co-wrote the screenplay. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Nostalgia

      First off, I had no clue this film was available on Blu-ray. Secondly, I had completely forgot about this movie. Lastly, it was very reasonably priced. Often times, regardless of how good a film is, retailers will overprice the movie just because there isn't an abundance of stores carrying the film. Needless to say, I grinned when I came across this BR and snatched it up immediately. I have an enormous BR library and very very rarely do i come across a film that I truly like & don't have, already. Over the Top, while it will never be on the 'World's Greatest Films' list, it's a movie I enjoyed as a kid and holds nostalgic value, to me. Bet I've watched it 10x's since buying the film, from Best Buy. Surprisingly, Over the Top's BR transfer looks pretty good, considering the age of the movie and the grainy poor pic quality of the DVD.

      Great inspiring story about a father trying to establish a relationship with his son who he left when he was young. This is a great movie and definately worth the purchase. Stallone plays a arm wrestling, truck driving, absentee father but not because he chose to his ex-wife's father is very rich and made him stay away. Now the mother is terminally ill and whats her son and Stallone to build a relationship together it is a sad but good movie. It has a pretty good soundtrack. It has a good storyline it is a little cheesy at times but overall it is good and is a low price. I was glad to see it come to blu-ray much better quality than DVD. I quickly bought it as I watch this movie 3 to 4 times a year. So I would recommend this movie if you have never seen it.

      I don't know what it is that I love about this movie, but I can watch it repeatedly. Perhaps it's because 'Over the Top' is one of those films, much like 'The Karate Kid Part III,' that is so bad it's actually good. This movie is basically the arm-wrestling equivalent of 'Rocky,' but its ok since it's Stallone playing the character. Nothing in terms of bonus on this disc other than the trailer (which is also quite funny), but at least it's anamorphic widescreen.

      Saw this on sale and remembered watching way back in high school mid 80's its still a good example on how a movie about arm wrestling is of the caliber of a b action film and overall still does what it intends to do, go all '80's on us picture quality what you expect 80's film, transferred to blu ray format not much improvement on the 80's sound and film qulity, but still a crisp picture. worth a watch!

      Pros: One of Stallone’s best. HD picture, even better on an OLED with 4k 60hz upscale. 5.1 Cons: No digital copy. No slipcover.
