No fear of the Reaper.
16 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Usually with sequels it's expected to see the hero return, but with this film both the hero and villain return from the first film ("Danger Zone" later re-released in 1994 as "Death Riders") . This sequel works just as well as a stand alone film. The original Danger Zone was a very basic, very low budget affair. This film has a modest budget but it manages to look bigger with a wider scope of events and characters.

Biker/undercover cop Wade has his old lady kidnapped by a an outlaw biker named Reaper, all because of some past static between the two. Reaper being the cold hearted cat that he is, has left many enemies in his wake. As they say, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, so it's not long before Wade has a group joining him in his pursuit of the evil biker. They include a family man burned by Reaper in a business venture, Reaper's ex-girlfriend who had her newborn sold by the villain like a pack of cheap cigarettes, and finally a guy who describes himself as a professional rainmaker, who had his skills jinxed after Reaper gave him a piece of cursed jewelry. Needless to say he's the oddest member of the group looking like a cross between Santa Claus and Peter Fonda with his white hair, beard, and flower power hippie threads and poncho. The four iron horse riders all head across the super slab of the desert, their thundering bikes closing the gap between mere hatred and vengeance.

Danger Zone 2 is not great action cinema, but it certainly entertains. There are some nifty ideas in the film, don't want to mention them here as it would spoil the film. Jason Williams as Wade has a nice laconic Eastwood style manner, and the rest of the cast are fun to watch as well. Outlaw biker films enjoyed popularity during the late sixties and early seventies, with actors like Adam Roarke, William Smith, Russ Tamblyn, and others starring. Since then outlaw biker films have been few and far between, Stone Cold (with Lance Henrickson and William Forsythe) was perhaps one of the last to earn a theatrical release.

Both Jason Williams (Wade), Robert Random (Reaper), and Barne Subkoski (Rainmaker) returned for a third installment in the Danger Zone series titled Danger Zone 3: Steel Horse War.
