A Rather Dramatic Biker Movie
18 July 2016 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

"Keeg" (Bruce Dern) is the psychotic leader of a motorcycle gang which pretty much does whatever it wants due to the fact that the people in a certain community are terrified to testify against them. This is especially true for a beautiful woman named "Lea" (Melody Patterson) who would love to tell the police everything she knows. Unfortunately, her sister happens to be in a prostitution ring run by Keeg's older brother and is deathly afraid for what might happen to her. So like everybody else she remains silent. Then one day Keeg catches a glimpse of a young man by the name of "Romko" (Chris Robinson) who spends his time sketching everything he sees-and that includes some of the activities of the motorcycle gang. This infuriates Keeg who roughs up Romko and destroys all of the sketches involving him and his gang. However, Keeg soon becomes obsessed with the idea that Romko might begin drawing more sketches and because of that begins to make plans to prevent that from happening. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this turned out to be a rather dramatic biker movie due in large part to the performance of Bruce Dern. Likewise the scene involving the brutal gang-rape of the attractive blonde by the name of "Janie" (Karen Cirol) was also quite shocking and intense as well. Be that as it may, I thought that this was one of the more explicit and realistic biker movies out there and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
