Wouldn't you know it? The DVD stopped working!
29 March 2015 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I liked what I saw of "Return of the Rebels". Unfortunately, the DVD began skipping scenes and then simply stopped working. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this tale of a former motorcycle gang that gets back together after some hoodlums start taking over a campground operated by a former member. It looked as if it was a lot of fun to film, especially the boat chase (the last scene that the DVD reached before conking out). Barbara Eden, Don Murray, Christopher Connelly, Jamie Farr and Patrick Swayze put on some great performances. From what I saw, I recommend this movie, just like I recommend the other TV movie in which I've seen Barbara Eden: the "Rosemary's Baby" knockoff "The Stranger Within" (in which the woman known as cute, sweet Jeannie actually manages to look scary).

Cool stuff.
