The last scene of this movie tied directly into the first scene in which Kyle performed an heroic good deed for a fellow soldier. The message was clear and powerful and was needed in a big way back in 1977 when this movie was released.

I saw this film on VHS back in the early-mid 80's. Being about 12-13 I loved the Ultra-Violence and the entire concept. I must have watched it through twice in as many days and the finale a few times more. Not often a film with 'Massacre' in the title actually delivers but this one did. In Spades.
The only setback was that I seemed to be the only person who ever saw it. Ever. Seriously. Back in those days of the 'Video Nasty' we used to compare splatter films at break during school but I was the only person who ever knew of this one. Same for years. Even up till now, come to think of it.
Its a tribute to its raw power that I can still recall so much of it. The bikers, the corrupt law, the 'Paton' skit,the shootings and the massacre itself. And the fact that not one of the bikers could actually fire in a straight line and had no idea of the concept of cover. Hey-Ho!
And the ending is one of the best, most powerful and most disturbing ever filmed. Its stuck with me over 20 years.
Now THATS what you call a Finale'.
