Entertainment Weekly
A blatant re-spin of ''The Fast and the Furious'' that also happens to be a far better movie.

New York Daily News
If you want old-school cool, you go to Laurence Fishburne.

Charlotte Observer
Proves two things irrefutably. First, Fishburne doesn't get enough work that tests his acting abilities... Second, Luke's breakout performance in "Fisher" was no fluke.

Chicago Sun-Times
All of this is intriguing material, but the movie doesn't do much with it.

It's too long and self-consciously progressive to be entertaining, but it's too well-intentioned to be dismissed altogether.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The fun of Biker Boyz should be in the racing, and though director Reggie Rock Bythewood throws around a lot of techniques, nothing really ignites.

Though it's only 90 minutes, the film drags, making these not-so-easy riders pretty tough to watch.

Philadelphia Inquirer
This startlingly lame tale about a young upstart challenging a veteran leader of the pack doesn't update the genre, it simply recasts it.

However you pronounce Bythewood -- I assume it's by-the-wood -- his work here is strictly by the numbers.

Guy flicks can be just as galling as the chick variety. Here's Exhibit A in how to lose an audience in ten minutes.

San Francisco Chronicle
The obvious idea is to stage a motorcycle version of "The Fast and the Furious." Instead we get the flat and the tedious.
