"That ape...there'll be nothing' but trouble now...they shouldn't have let 'em out"
22 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

The biker films of the 1950s scared a lot of folks. After all, the leather-clad bikers were seen as both counter-culture AND flagrant law-breakers. However, when you see most of these films today (especially the seminal film, "The Wild One"), they seem incredibly tame and the bad behavior just seems a tad rude! For the biker movies that actually were seriously scary, these came in the late 60s and early 70s with films like "The Born Losers" and "Satan's Sadists" and "C.C. & Company". So it's not at all surprising that "Motorcycle Gang" is really square...it's from the first wave of films where the baddies should have been called "The Mild Ones"!

Nick was sent away for 15 months for some sort of criminal activity. When he returns, he's ready to kick butt and cause trouble. So he's really disappointed to find that the old gang have all become squares and joined a supervised and respectable bike club! He's out to make some changes...or possibly die trying! And, cute little Terry (Anne Neyland) isn't helping any when she suggests her boyfriend beat the snot out of Nick...but just be sure to do it when there are no witnesses around, since the boyfriend is on probation already!

All in all, a mildly tough and scary biker film...one that is entertaining but lacks sizzle.
