In Venice, California, the leader of Hell's Angels Heavenly Blues (Peter Fonda) tells his friend Joe 'Loser' Kearns (Bruce Dern) that he had located his stolen motorcycle in Mecca. While trying to retrieve the bike, Loser is shot on the back by a police patrol end goes to the hospital. After the surgery, Blues and the Hell's Angels take Loser from the hospital and he dies. The troublemakers prepare his funeral at Sequoia Groves with a wild party.
"The Wild Angels" is among the worst movies I have ever seen. This trash directed by Roger Corman is a dated mess with terrible performances, unlikable characters completely lost and a pointless screenplay. The bikers request the service of the preacher to destroy the church? Blues interrupts the preacher's speech to say shallow words but when the Hell's Angels are ready to bury Loser, he says no words to his best friend. The story has the only objective of shocking the audience with rapes, sacrilege and stupid and senseless violence. My vote is one (awful).
Title (Brazil): "Os Anjos Selvagens" ("The Wild Angels")
