They're in it for the kicks! You are in it for the riffs!
31 January 2016 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

I saw this film as an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, because chances are if I had never seen it on that show, I never would have watched it. This film is just one of a whole lot of biker films from this era and the only thing that sets it apart from others is that it was riffed by the gang on the satellite of love and that these bikers are not shown riding their motorcycles all that often. Other than those things, this movie is just another low budget biker film with an unappealing cast and a very bad 'hero'. The film at least has a bit of a plot going on and if I want to be kind, it almost has the same plot as Point Break in that it features a gang that is out robbing and they keep getting away with it so someone has to infiltrate their gang; however, I am probably being way too kind to this film. Though it is not quite as bad as other films riffed by the Mystery Science Theater 3000 gang, it is still overall kind of stinky.

The story has a race car driver who has an accident at the start of the film. This accident cost him his life savings so he decides to just give it up. He ends up at a bar where he meets a biker gang that has a proposition for him. They want him to essentially drive a get away car during their heists as the cops are getting closer to capturing them. They figure they start using a car rather than their bikes, they may not be fingered quite so fast. The race car driver does not want to do it, but he ends up joining them as he is recruited by the police to infiltrate the gang so that he can give the police updates on their plans.

This was a pretty good episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I prefer when they do horror or science fiction, but this one worked because it was rather fast paced and had lots of riffing material for the gang. The film was a bit more violent than a lot of the fare that they have riffed as the shoot out at the end gets pretty bad. I am surprised they showed so much considering in later episodes they seemed to shy away from showing anything too graphic. The episode featuring the film Squirm comes to mind as that one cut out nearly every bloody scene and decent worm kill except the old man at the farm.

So the film is nothing special, but nor is it completely horrid. Just a lot horrid I guess you can say. I doubt there are too many people who have seen the straight film with out MST3K, but probably more so than a film like Skydivers. The film was full of kicks though and it at least moved by at a brisk pace so it had that going for it. Because in retrospect it did not have that many kicks to it.
