Driving Force

Driving Force
1989, USA/Philippines
dir. Andrew Prowse
cast: Sam Jones, Don Swayze, Catherine Bach

Rival breaker companies clash over the salvage rights to the auto wrecks on the highways of a post-economic collapse future. A decent family man must fend off his dangerous rivals to keep in business, while trying to bring up his daughter.

Utterly tedious effort in which TV movie bullshit family drama wins out over armoured pick up truck mayhem. Not even Don Swayze as the cancer riddled nihilistic villain can save this, despite knocking a caravan with a kid in it over a cliff. Dead End Drive In used the same basic idea as a sub-plot to much better effect.
