Life on the Line

"I do have a job, momma, I told you I'm a line man now." Voltage Pictures has released a new trailer for the film called Life on the Line, about the dangerous and challenging lives of power line workers. Yeah, seriously. The film stars John Travolta and Devon Sawa as two line workers who end up working during a massive storm that nearly destroys their lives. The cast includes Kate Bosworth, Sharon Stone, Gil Bellows, Julie Benz and Ryan Robbins. This almost looks like one of those action movies from the 90s that we don't see anymore, all about hard working people who just want to keep everyone safe and do their jobs. Not sure if this will find any audience at all, but give it a watch anyway. "We gotta get the power on!"

Here's the first official trailer for David Hackl's Life on the Line, direct from Voltage's YouTube:

Life on the Line follows the lives of a crew of eccentric and courageous power line workers who do the extremely dangerous work of fixing the crumbling electrical grid. John Travolta stars as Beau, a salt of the earth man who blames himself for his brother's death and raises Bailey, his orphaned niece (Kate Bosworth). His worlds collide when Bailey's handsome lover (Devon Sawa) joins his linemen crew on the eve of a massive and deadly storm that threatens to rip their lives apart. Life on the Line is directed by former production designer David Hackl, of the films Saw V and Into the Grizzly Maze previously. Voltage Pictures seems to be releasing this film sometime in 2016, even though IMDb still lists a 2015 release date.

What the hell happened to Travolta...?

DAVIDPD on Feb 23, 2016


He joined a cult. Got a lot of plastic surgery. Probably a few other things.

Carpola on Feb 23, 2016


But the wig seems to be from a Nic Cage movie.

'We are linemen Bill, it's what we do...' is what he said before walking into the see never to be seen again.

Carpola on Feb 23, 2016


Maybe this looks good to people that work for power companies? For the rest of us, yikes...

cuckoozey on Feb 23, 2016


I'm a lineman and really want nothing to do with this LOL. I go to the movies to get away from my job 🙂

I hope your job isn't as insane as that everyday.

Carpola on Feb 23, 2016


Not even close. Would make for a boring movie, I'm sure.

Most of the men making comments on here must wear panties.

Couldn't they at least spell Bosworth's name right? Talk about minimum effort.

levrock on Feb 23, 2016


So many cliche scenes, people that desperate to make movies now-a-days?

Justin R on Feb 23, 2016

'There's 85 bins to empty and lava flowing through the town... We can DO THIS!!!'

Carpola on Feb 23, 2016


Lol wow you consider a lineman who gloves 23,000 voLts the equivalent of a garbage man. I know Firemen that call lineman brave and crazy for doing that work.

Jake Saladino on May 29, 2016


Appreciate all the linemen out there.

Mike Riley on Apr 2, 2017


Stupid is what you are. All you do is sit at a desk.

Mike Riley on Apr 2, 2017


Says the stupid man who comments on someone else's comment from over a year ago. You have an awesome life. I am sitting at a desk, so that part was cool!

Oblique on Apr 3, 2017


Ha ha I thought you was Computer nerd. Hope your lights stay on they have already went in the blink in your head. Guess you are a gay liberial !

Mike Riley on Apr 3, 2017


Why dont you hang yourself from a line-man. No body cares about your love for a stupid movie about linemen. I hope your computer dies too. lol what an idiot. the internet these days....

Oblique on Apr 4, 2017


Ha ha a stupid liberial . Crawl in a hole rat.

Mike Riley on Apr 4, 2017


Ha ha you are wrong .

Mike Riley on Apr 5, 2017


Wow I'm getting harassed by a lineman fanboy on a comment I made a year ago. Get a life dude...And you are now blocked so take that to the line man along with this whack movie!

Oblique on Apr 5, 2017

DJROBL on Feb 23, 2016


it's good for a Sunday afternoon on a rainy day when everything else totally sucks...

ari smulders on Feb 23, 2016


This is a joke. Right? This is just sad. I guess the race to the Razzies have gotten off to an early start.

J. Todd on Feb 23, 2016


A lot of actors I remember from 1990s here. Movie looks that way too, I must admit. As for John Travolta, well, he has to make a living, right?

shiboleth on Feb 23, 2016


Fucking love this one.

grimjob on Feb 23, 2016


Wow. How incredibly uninteresting.

grimjob on Feb 23, 2016


lol needs more drama!!!

Oblique on Feb 23, 2016


Well there is a corpse and an evil toxic waste company.

Higgens on Feb 23, 2016



Joshua Gallow on Feb 24, 2016


So I'm guessing that Nic Cage turned this one down?

Gator McKlusky on Feb 25, 2016


This movie has a diversity problem. I must boycott it.

Mr.Razzbender on Feb 25, 2016


For all of you haters out there about this movie - Why don't you try ONE day in the life of a lineman!! You bash this all you want, until you actually need electricity and are pissed because the Lineman doesn't show up soon enough. My husband lives and breathes this life every day!! Working storms, being away from his family weeks at a time. He works his butt off to keep YOUR lights turned on! Some people have zero respect for what others work so hard for! This movie depicts the true dangers that lineman may face each and every day they are out there. They work 16 hour days or more sometimes with little sleep - VERY DANGEROUS needless to say and yet they do it because they are keeping you in the light! Disrespectful most people have become!
