Storyline

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 Nick Riganas

Did You Know?

Trivia

The helicopter used in the film is a Bell 222UB painted black. It is the same type of helicopter that was used in Airwolf (1984) and in the "Judgment Day" two-part episode of The A-Team (1983). See more »

Goofs

The baggage from the carry being loaded on the aircraft where Harley and Marlboro are hiding not only doesn't finish (baggage remains on the cart) both two loaders are missing. Since they need to sign off the loading of the aircraft, their absence could have only been explained by their being on the aircraft itself.

This alone would be enough to prevent the aircraft from taking off and Harley and Marlboro would have been arrested/ or least questioned. See more »

True 'Cult Classic'
9 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is a great movie and a true 'cult classic'. Yes I realize it's a spin on Butch Cassidy but it's a good one and it works. Completely overboard action sequences, cheesy and campy humor galore.

I'm sick of people giving this movie a bad rating because the action isn't 'believable'. It isn't SUPPOSED to be believable. Is a movie about gigantic, talking, transforming, sentient robots doing battle with each other 'believable'? Give me a break that movie was one big long commercial.

If you're a fan of 'cult' flicks you will like this one. If you'll take the time to check out the profiles of the people leaving bad ratings, most of the bad ratings are coming from British people with awful taste and even worse teeth.
