THIS IS NOT A PORN FILM!By a customer from ABERDEENSHIRE, SCOTLAND , 04 Aug 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]TITLE IS A LITTLE MISLEADING, THIS IS NOT AN HARD ACTION THRILLER BUT A CHEAP BUDGET FILM BASED ON A FEW MOTORCYCLISTS RIDING AROUND TERRORISING PEOPLE. TASTLESS SOUNDTRACK ALSO MAKES THIS MOVIE UNAPPEALING. 1 STAR RATING OUT OF SYMPATHY.

Reasonable cast, but very much of it's timeBy jonny (210 reviews) from Norwich , 11 Oct 2011Fairly generic earlier biker bike, I think might have been Jonathan Demme's debut in fact. Reasonable cast, but very much of it's time. For classic biker pix I'd go for The Wild One, Easy Rider or Katherine Beigelowe's first flick, The Loveless.
Angels..bad as they comeBy writeronthestorm (9 reviews) from nottingham , 30 Mar 2010I'm currently reading a book about the Hells Angels' crime empire which they have been able to build up for the most part thanks to Sonny Barger and his PR exercise to show the Hells Angels as free spirited easy-riders. Whilst this movie does show the drinking, drugs and violence, it is all pretty lame attempts to perpetuate the free-living image.
Other than curiosity to see Scott Glenn in an early role and a script penned by Jonathan Demme, there is not much that this film has to offer other than lazy stereotypes.
Generic biker filmBy a customer from London , 20 Mar 2008Fairly mundane biker film, light on plot but with a few good scenes. I guess the psychotic general character is kinda interesting at times....
Not very edifyingBy Savage (632 reviews) from London, England , 27 Oct 2006This is where Jonathan Demme made his debut, co-writing and producing this no-budget biker exploitationer for Roger Corman's New World Pictures, but anyone hoping for a little gem, or even germs of the talent to come, will probably be pretty disappointed.
You can kind of see what he and partner Joe Viola were after, utilising the ghost town setting for an elemental sort of stand-off between forms of society. The nasty Dragons believe that might makes right; the ineffectual hippies think that all you need is love; and Scott Glenn's Angels just want to be left alone to deal drugs and party, but they can kick arse when they need to.
Sadly, it doesn't really pan out into anything very interesting, and is seriously hindered by the quite atrocious transfer, all fuzzy colours and jerky pans. You can seriously damage your eyes watching something with technical specs as poor as this disc boasts.
Low grade B movieBy a customer from Norfolk , 02 Mar 2006A stereo typical 70's biker movie.Might be ok after a few beers , but otherwise forget it
