Reading what others have written about this, I reckoned I'd made a mistake acquiring it. Also, it starts really badly with a poorly lit and pathetic punch up, but it picks up. And does it! Same year as Easy Rider and with Roger Corman's known involvement, clearly made to cash in on that film's success. There is no great dialogue and the fight scenes are never particularly good but there is stink to this that seems just right. I've seen too many biker films where the boys in leather come over all cuddly and end up saving the day for some hard done by kid. Not here! I've also seen drawn out and crap initiation ceremonies but here, its over almost before it began but is so horrible. The girls too seem far more loose than I've seen before and its not as if they get treated well. Very strong sex and violence but very in keeping with the theme. This has the feel of a movie that a bunch of kids simply grabbed hold of and did it as best they could without too any studio involvement or the like. Flawed, rough and tough but it reminded me at times of the so called 'lesser' spaghetti westerns that get it just right. More animal than arty though it has to be said that there is some interesting use of the camera and those Las Vegas 60s lights and streets look good as does the later desert scenes. After a dull start this doesn't stop. It may not be going anywhere, but it doesn't stop. Did I mention those leather pants with the open stitching!
