If you want a glimpse...

The highlight of this movie for me was an interview w/ Jerry Garcia. The interviewer asks Garcia if he was afraid of the Angels, and Garcia replies that he was. The interviewer then asks Garcia what the attraction was - and Garcia replies with a Smile - "They're really good in all the violent spaces."

It's interesting to note that Garcia personally put up a large portion of the money to help make this movie happen.

I had read Hunter Thompson's excellent book on the Hells Angels prior to watching this movie, which I think may have filled in some blank spots.

It's not a well-made film, but it is Well Done. If you've ever been curious about what Real Hell's Angels were like - this is a good way to start finding out without risking much.
