Could have been much better...
29 April 2003 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that this is the first French-Canadian film I have seen and I came away very disappointed.. Jette took a rich and promising subject and unfortunately didnt do it justice..It comes off as an attempted semi-documentary but seems more as a stereotypical caricature of biker clubs.. The supporting roles arent fleshed out very well and the main protagonist Marc, lost my empathy very quickly.. I would have loved to see a deeper look at the relationship between Marc, Nose and Bof and also between Marc and Popeye, which is more of a filler than a contribution to the actions of Marc.. The cast seems to be competent enough, but unfortunately, an average script has let them down.. Watch this movie only if you are really into bikers or if like me, you are curious to see the difference in the accents between the French and the French-Canadians...
