Storyline

Motorcycle mechanic C.C. Ryder joins "The Heads," an outlaw biker gang. Fellow gang members menace fashion journalist Ann when her limo breaks down in the desert, but C.C. comes to her rescue. The bikers disrupt a motorcross event tied in with a fashion shoot, but C.C. enters the competition under Ann's admiring eye. His win puts him at odds with Moon, leader of "The Heads." When C.C. leaves with his cut of the purse, the bikers kidnap Ann, and C.C. races Moon to win her freedom. Written by Sister Grimm <srgrimm@teleport.com>

Namath is lousy, but William Smith, Sid Haig and Bruce Glover save this lame biker movie from being a complete turkey.
15 February 2004 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

I'm not an American, but I'm well aware of Joe Namath being a sporting legend. However, as an actor he stinks. He's very wooden and lacks charisma, and whoever decided to cast him as a biker was an idiot. Namath plays C.C. Ryder, a nice guy mechanic who runs with a biker gang "The Heads", led by Moon (biker movie legend William Smith). While he is accepted by most of the gang, he has an easy relationship with Moon, and once he becomes involved with a "straight" fashion reporter (Ann-Margaret) tensions mount, leading to a kidnapping. Namath as I said is lousy, and as 90% of the movie focuses on him, it makes it hard to stay interested. But Ann-Margaret is a babe, and even better William Smith is terrific. Smith plays a great bad ass, it's just a pity there wasn't more of him in the movie. As well as Smith watch 'C.C. and Company' to see Sid Haig and Bruce Glover as two of Smith's biker pals. These three talented character actors save the movie from being a complete turkey.
