Storyline

The Masters of Menace are actually a motorcycle gang. When one of their own dies while performing a dangerous bike stunt, they decide to cross the country to go bury him. With the coffin in the back of the pick-up truck and the tight-butt lawyer in the front, their craving for beer combined with lack of manners will disturb quite a few people wherever they go, including the police. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

More realistic than many think!
25 December 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. As a former rider with a "club" in the 1970's, I remember those times and people with an insider's view. Contrary to all the Hollywood "biker" movies, this film is a far better representation of the experience of being a club member during that period. The desire to "just have fun", and tweak the insecurities of the "straights" without really hurting anyone, is right on the mark. Also very accurate is the tendency to do things without considering any negative consequences. Hollywood has taken 5% of the "biker" lifestyle, and portrayed it as a continuous confrontational, violent existence. Masters of Menace accurately reveals the other 95%, and the sometimes childish enjoyment of the experience. It brought back lots of good memories!
