The film meandered from event to occasionally-memorable event
11 July 1999 | by (Ann Arbor, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This film doesn't really have a plot. It just seems to meander from event to event until it runs out of movie.

The pacing is S-L-O-W, and even the fight scenes are confusing and not much fun to watch. Better than "Black Bikers From Hell" or "The Dirt Gang," but not by much.

Memorable scenes include the biker poetry reading, the spaghetti rape sequence, and the funeral oration.

If you have a tolerance built up for bad movies, it's almost worth watching. If you don't, it will swallow your soul.
