Trivia

At 1:28:47 you can clearly see that bloods pistol has not ejected the round completely after shooting the convenience store attendant. See more »

Goofs

In the bike construction montage, Dan lays down red paint on a tank. There are no red tanks anywhere on either his, or Virgil's bikes, or in the shop that we see. Since the montage was supposed to be about building Dan's bike, this makes no sense. See more »

Title Card: It is easy to go down in to hell; night and day the gates of dark death stand wide; but to climb back up again, to retrace one's steps to the open air, there lies the problem, the difficult task. Virgil: The Aeneid

Charlie on EDGE!!!!
19 February 2002 | by (Charlotte North By God Carolina) – See all my reviews

And before he lost it. But, this is by far the most realistic biker movie I've ever seen. Charlie plays a real life undercover cop with issues that infiltrates a top gang run very effectively by Michael Madsen, minus the obligitory hair and tatts. Charlie's descent into a self-imposed hell is a real treat for fans. Makes you wonder where all that passion went? 9/10
