Hochelaga take 2
10 August 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a movie about th biker war in Quebec, in which a few hundred persons died, including a lot of innocent ones.

The first time I watched this movie, I did like it but only because of the theme, the criminal bikers. The second time I watched it, a couple years later, all the symbols and the "hidden messages" about the faith of the main characters were just too clear.

Yes, there is overacting by the main character, but I think it was intended that way. He looks innocent, not the non-guilty kind of innocent, but rather, as Mr Pierre Foglia used in one of his chronicles about a different topic, innocent as the rabbit looking at the headlights of the truck that is about to crush him.

This movie was, in my opinion, intended to discourage people from ever joining a criminal organization such as those portrayed in the story, by demonstrating that the only possible end, or escape, is death.
