4.0 out of 5 stars The original (and better) "First Blood" ! Aug. 9 2002
Just a little spooky, not to mention blatant, when you compare this movie and Sylvester Stallones "First Blood" and realise that "Ruckus" was made 2 years earlier. Unfortunately this movie was not the huge smash hit that "First Blood" was due to studio problems, delayed release and little, if any advertising. However, I am throwing forth a challenge.....watch both these movies today and you will realise that only one of them stood the test of time. Clue for you.....it wasn't "First Blood". Where this movie is still entertaining, the other seems amateurish at best.
The lack of graphic violence in "Ruckus" works in it's favour, with bloodshed impled more-so than filling the screen. Also, the odds are a little more believable, what with one man versus 2 or 3 police officers and a couple of car loads of redneck hoons as opposed to Stallones victory over an entire small cities police force and numerous army divisions. Another thing that works well in Ruckus is the introduction of a female presence, being none other than the scrumptious Linda Blair, and a light romance plot line making it more female friendly. Most girls who would refuse to sit through a Rambo flick wouldn't mind watching this even though there isn't enough romance to make it soppy. You've gotta love a romance played out on dirt bikes :-)
The commentary on the DVD is enjoyable also. When the movies maker and lead actor and actress get together, you can feel the sense of fun they had making this movie. They chat about the plot line, budget, competition and good times had by all making this fun little flick.
All in all, if you are the sort of person that let's box office takings and talentless movie reviewers make your decisions for you, I recommend you steer clear. If you like making your own decisions and enjoy good, pure entertainment, go for it. A truly fun movie ! BRAVO !

3.0 out of 5 stars Rukus is Fun! Sept. 14 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Rukus is one of my guilty pleasures. I found it at a video store in VHS and bought it. I had seen it only once before, but I remembered it well. It doesn't rate with Award winning classics (in my opinion), but it's fun to watch. It's entertaining and it's a "feel good" type of show. I'm sure there are some who woud pan this movie, but if you can put aside your expectations and you can enjoy some colorful characters and a charming love story along with the action, it will satisfy! I don't own many movies, but this one is a keeper! It's hard to go wrong with great character actors as Farnsworth and Ben Johnson. And the rest of the cast is sure to be recognized from other shows they have done. It was also a time when Linda Blair was young and attractive. The other plus is two very nice country songs written by Willy Nelson and Hank Cochran. The songs are sung by Janie Fricke and she did a great job. I could listen to it anytime. I get a kick out of watching this movie every so often. Like I said..It's just fun! I was actually surprised to find it out on DVD, but I'm happy about it as my video version wasn't playing very well. Now I can enjoy it in a widescreen format!

5.0 out of 5 stars RUCKUS ROCKUS July 20 2001
Yes Ruckus still Rocks...This was a great movie, I had been looking for it for years, about Twenty to be exact, and truthfully had pretty much given up when one day while at work, Trying to find something...for a customer, I thought of That great Movie From when I was a kid, and there it was A year to the month after it was released On DVD...I dont even want to know how long it was available in VHS...But Anyway....I had seen this movie(Who Knows how many times) During the time that I was 8-10 years old and I thought seeing it now would make it a different Movie, maybe less fun, or harder to watch, but This movie is as great as it ever was, and seeing it from the perspective of a grownup just makes it better, I could just appreciate the Movie on more subtle levels, the ending specifically....And of course there would be No "First Blood" Without Ruckus...There's also Antother Movie Called "A Breed Apart", starring Rutger Hauer and Kathleen Turner Which Could, be Compared Directly to "Ruckus". Ruckus ends with our Hero (played By Dirk Benedict Of The A-Team and Battlestar Galactica Fame) winning his little war against the Hicks and winning an island in the process...Of course nobody really gets hurt in this movie, this must be where Faceman (Benedicts Character in "The A-Team") learned to get into combat without really so much as scrathing a person. "A Breed Apart" Starts with Rutger Hauer Living On his island while involved with(Or Semi Involved) w/Turner, with Powers Booth in hot pursuit. Though we don't Find out Hauer is a vet till the end of the movie(If I remember). I can't Say anything Bad About Ruckus, It's Funny, The Action Is Great, The characters Are loveable. You even like the hicks in a strange and funny way.. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Best movie ever.... Aug. 7 2000
By Jimmy
Finally, the DVD version has come. This is undoubtably the best movie ever made in my opinion. The only problem is, no one's ever heard of it. My father taped this movie years ago off cable and we accidently broke the tape. Thank you for putting this on DVD so now I will always have a copy. If no one has never seen this, I surely recommend it to anyone with country in them. It has a great story and some of the best characters I have ever seen. You truly feel as if you are in the movie with these clowns. If you're the type person who likes to quote lines from movies and laugh constantly this is for you. The soundtrack is great too with music from country stars like Willie Nelson. This is also a good family movie with no language or that kind of stuff. The transfer of the DVD is really good too. I was a little disappointed with the extras though. All there is a commentary and cast bios. But, who cares as long as you have a very difficult movie to find. This movie is a must for those living in Alabama and Georgia or anywhere!
