Trivia

Production on the film actually dates back to the 1980s, when producer Charles Band was running his Empire Pictures studio in Italy. The film was originally called Battle Bikes, and Michael Miner (of Robocop fame) was set to direct and write the film. Production fell through, but the artwork was later reused for this movie.

Not bad, but could've been better
5 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was always curious about Murdercycle as it had that interesting name to it and the potential for some good action. On top of that, it was a Full Moon movie. Murdercycle was not too shabby. It has a solid little story that developments as the movie goes on and things tend to get interesting. The concept was pretty cool and made for a decent little sci-fi movie. This movie could've been a lot better, however. The PG-13 rating is what really holds this movie down. This was just asking for some crazy gore, especially with people getting ran over by the Murdercycle. Add in some crazy gore, you make the action of this movie all the more memorable. Instead, it was action that just average. Even with an "Action Extreme" studio name attached to it, you'd better bring on the insane action. Unfortunately, that is not the case. My other gripe has to do with the Murdercycle itself. With that sort of name, there should have been some heavy duty weapons and crazy stuff. Instead, just little blue lasers that can't even destroy trees! That made the Murdercycle seem weak. Overall, not a bad little movie, but definitely could've been so much more. I guess it can be called a missed opportunity to an extent. Think of how cool merchandise could've been for Murdercycle...
