Two lone riders and childhood friends, the rough and silent Harley Davidson and the ragged sun-baked cowboy Marlboro, assemble once more when they learn that their favourite hangout and the place where they grew up, the notorious Rock 'n' Roll Bar and Grill is facing imminent foreclosure. For this reason, against the preposterous demands for a new contract, the two lifelong buddies in unflinching determination to win back the bar, they will decide to hold up the corrupt bank's armoured car, unbeknownst to them that its cargo is not money but a new lethal and highly experimental street drug: the Crystal Dream. Now the bank wants it back and they are unstoppable. Is everything lost for Harley and Marlboro, the two well-meaning but amateurish thieves? Written by

Harley and Marlboro not only stowaway on an interstate flight, they do so with the body of a baggage handler and a kidnapped baggage handler as well. Assuming that they were unable to get away from the plane when it landed in Las Vegas, they would have been arrested and taken into custody.
Even if they could explain away the murdered baggage handler,the kidnapping and the stowing away, they would have been held in custody for the money that they have in briefcase which they would have no reasonable explanation for possessing, as well as the weapons on their persons. See more »
This was a typical late 80's early 90's action flick....but its memorable for the title alone...just like all of these action movies THE PLOT IS EXTRA! the dialogue is head and shoulders above anything Stalone or Segal ever said...and the bickering between Johnson and Rourke is genuinely funny.... Above Average Action; Very Good Dialogue (for an action movie)
