In this high-octane thriller, Truck Turner (Isaac Hayes, who also composed the soundtrack) is a bounty hunter who’s tracking a sadistic pimp on the mean streets of Los Angeles. Armed with his brute strength and ice-cool partner (Alan Weeks), Truck closes in on his mark. But a tragic accident soon changes all the rules, and suddenly the hunter finds himself being hunted by the city’s deadliest hired killers. Truck strikes back in a series of wild car chases, shoot-outs, and bone-crunching fistfights.
