Storyline

Motorcycle mechanic C.C. Ryder joins "The Heads," an outlaw biker gang. Fellow gang members menace fashion journalist Ann when her limo breaks down in the desert, but C.C. comes to her rescue. The bikers disrupt a motorcross event tied in with a fashion shoot, but C.C. enters the competition under Ann's admiring eye. His win puts him at odds with Moon, leader of "The Heads." When C.C. leaves with his cut of the purse, the bikers kidnap Ann, and C.C. races Moon to win her freedom. Written by Sister Grimm <srgrimm@teleport.com>

Up there among the best/worst in biker trash cinema
25 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its starring Joe Namath, for God sakes. Don't expect it to be Citizen Kane. However, if your taste in movies is tasteless, this film wont let you down.

Its got everything you want in a trash movie; REALLY bad acting, exploitation of naked actresses, fighting, motorcycle chases, bad camera work, etc...

Among the highlights: 1) the only big screen film appearance of Wayne Cochran and the CC riders. He was known as the white James Brown and his cover version of Otis Redding's "Can't Turn Me Loose" in this film shows you why. 2) An Ann Margaret nude scene, in the middle of her prime MEEEEEOOOWWWWW! 3) Probably William Smith's best movie performance in a career that has spanned over 60 years. 4) The soundtrack is one of the best unsung biker movie soundtracks. Lots of funky fuzz guitar, as well as Wayne Cochran and the title track by Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels.

Joe Namath's performance is one of the worst in film history for a big studio, mainstream release. Its spectacularly awful. In an entertaining and charming way, it truly sucks.

Watch it for ironic content, not for a truly great film, and you will enjoy it. Its so bad that its a masterpiece.
