A good movie to watch with a blonde in one hand and a bottle of beer in the other. It's loosely a sequel to a pair of earlier "Danger Zone" movies but this one stands well enough on its own. The setting is a desolate stretch of desert (filmed near Trona, California) where a band of renegade Confederates may have buried a supply of gold during the Civil War. Modern-day criminal "Grim Reaper" kills two cops as he rounds up his old motorcycle-gang to find the gold. His nemesis, an ex-lawman named Wade Olsen, tries to thwart him. Thrown into the mix are some swimsuit models and a bevy of college girls on an archaeological dig.
Jason Williams (who put the "flesh" into "Flesh Gordon") pushes the laconic he-man myth a bit too hard but he's an adequate hero and grits his teeth nicely while being dragged behind a motorcycle. Bob Random also suffices as the villain and the horsewhipping he gives a fellow biker is far more vivid than the one shown in the first "Danger Zone."
Juanita Ranney returns as the aptly-named "Skin."
