Misleading title
5 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I would have thought the title would be more towards the main character but I guess "Cycle Wuss" doesn't have much selling potential. There's more than one biker and none of them are exactly "psycho", they resemble hell's angels rejects. This makes me wonder why our hero decided to hire bikers to do his dirty work? Anyway, the abduction of the two hippie girls isn't all that "savage", its just the girls gagged and left on a couch where they cry and moan. I don't know were they came up with a title like "Numbered Days". As for the film itself in a whole, you can really decide for yourself but probably won't feel any better or worse for doing so.
