Quickly paced biker trash fun
4 August 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Its not as intelligent as "The Born Losers", its not as violent as "The Peace Killers", nor is it as just plain good as "The Wild Angels". However, "The Glory Stompers" is a fun if minor entry in the biker trend. Its a barrage through the catalog of clichés associated with the exploitation subgenre, and while its pretty exhausting by the end, it is for the most part a good amount of quickly paced and socially irredeemable fun.

Like any good biker film, this is far from an accurate presentation of the lifestyle. Even by the standards of the genre, the actors here are far too clean cut for the most part. The members of the Black Souls gang look like they'd be more in place in one of the era's Beach Party movies (which a good amount of them were). As the mamas of the Black Souls gang, Chris Noel and Astrid Warner are both far too good looking and polished to be taken seriously. The members of the Glory Stompers look more like bikers.

The highlight of this film however is definitely another over-the-top and entertaining performance from Dennis Hopper. His character inconsistencies go beyond being merely bipolar. He does what Hopper does best, playing an absolutely insane character with style. Just try to count how many times he says "Man". If you're a die-hard fan of biker films, give "The Glory Stompers" a run. (6/10)
