Don't expect much....and you won't be disappointed
12 March 2001 | by (Denver, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Don't expect a biker flick. Don't expect the genius of Easy Rider. Okay, now that you're not expecting anything....sit back and enjoy Dean Stockwell as a tense, neurotic, lonely and misunderstood youth on his way to self-destruction. This is years before Al of Quantum Leap fame. He's the best part of the film. The girl, Pat Stich, is annoying. The sidekick, Todd Sussman, reminds me of Screech on Saved By The Bell....this is not a compliment (are they related?). The writing and editing of this film leave much to be desired. The movie screams Low-Budget.

I like Dean. I would ride a motorcycle across the desert with him anytime. As long as we ride out of this movie.
