I have to confess that pretty much all biker movies leave me cold, so I approached "Angels Die Hard" with some prejudice. However, I am pretty sure that fans of biker movies will find this effort to be really below par. It's really badly scripted - there's next to no plot, with the movie more often than not coming across as if it was being made up as filming was going on. The characters are either stereotypes or, in the case of the bikers, poorly introduced and given little to make them real characters. Headline star William Smith can't seem to do a thing with his poorly written character, though his half-hearted performance definitely is much better than the abysmal acting by the rest of the cast. The movie's one saving grace is its soundtrack, filled with songs by unknown rock n roll groups (including East-West Pipeline, who later did the fabulous songs in the biker movie "Bury Me An Angel) that are interesting and/or catchy. I don't know if a soundtrack album was released for this movie, but look for that instead of watching the movie itself.
