One of the better bike flicks
18 August 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I honestly don't know what the previous poster was watching but he obviously ain't a bike lover as this movie has probably one of the best choppers ever seen on film, and when the song Fallin' In Love With Baby is playing you just can't help but smile like Bob Fuller who looks over the moon to be on this baby. I collect bike movies and the vast majority are rubbish with minimal bikes, this is different with i'd say 75% of the movie riding scenes! Fantastic opening sequence too with about 50 scooters riding in formation across a desert with magic music by Bill Medley. The soundtrack LP is easily obtained and is well worth getting hold of too. This movie only lets its self down when it goes into bikie movie clichés like the rumble/brawl scenes. Special mention to the stunning Sherry Bain, a realistic beauty who carries this movie, why she didn't become a major star is a mystery????
