Dumb--even for a biker film
11 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Aside from "Werewolves on Wheels", "Nam's Angels" (aka "The Losers") is probably the dumbest biker film of its day. Now that's saying a lot, as there were MANY bad biker films and only a few good ones. It's a very strange genre that many folks today simply won't understand...and frankly, I lived during that era and STILL don't understand!

This film begins with a motorcycle gang (headed by William Smith) arriving in Vietnam during the war. They have been recruited to infiltrate territory where the Army isn't allowed--and they'll go using their motorcycles! Think about it--cycles through the jungle! But, before they go on their stupid mission, the guys do what you'd expect--get drunk and make it with local prostitutes. Overall, the film is cheap, makes zero sense and is pretty dull. If you love bad biker films, then this should be right up your alley--otherwise, you could only do better looking elsewhere.

By the way, 'Vietnam' in this film is actually the Philippines--a place where tons of horrible American-produced movies were made in the late 60s and early 70s.
