Trivia

Though they have no scenes together, Eriq La Salle's character, Slick Will, and Vanessa Bell Callaway's character, Anita, are married in "Biker Boyz". Back in 1988, they both had roles in "Coming To America" which shows some irony. Eriq was Shari Headley's boyfriend, Darryl. Vanessa was chosen to be Eddie Murphy's bride, Imani Izzi. In the end of course Eddie and Shari's characters married, jilting Eriq and Vanessa who end up married to each other in Biker Boyz. See more »

8 bucks that should've been saved for gas money...
10 February 2003 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

To begin with, I wasn't expecting really much from the film at all. More or less, I anticipated a "Fast and the Furious" with motorcycles. However, even to those expectations, the film falls way short. I was given the rather EXPECTED mediocre plot and cast of stereotypical characters; in addition to, the rather UNEXPECTED monotonous action sequences and poorly coordinated/directed stunts.

While I spent 90 minutes wondering why these "hardcore" street racers had chromed-finished, colorful, graphic-designed bikes that looked like they were ready more for a show than any race, I kept watching these races that felt like the bikes were going 25 mph rather than the 200 mph their speedometers were reading. Each of the ~ 5 races in the film are pretty much exactly the same, and the final race is, to say the least, predictable and lame. I won't even begin to discuss the 'realism' of any of the races because I don't believe the movie is to be taken that serious in the first place...which is unfortunate.

The verdict? Its a shame to say "save this movie for a rental night", because a movie of this nature should have only been appreciated on the big screen.
