Storyline

Two lone riders and childhood friends, the rough and silent Harley Davidson and the ragged sun-baked cowboy Marlboro, assemble once more when they learn that their favourite hangout and the place where they grew up, the notorious Rock 'n' Roll Bar and Grill is facing imminent foreclosure. For this reason, against the preposterous demands for a new contract, the two lifelong buddies in unflinching determination to win back the bar, they will decide to hold up the corrupt bank's armoured car, unbeknownst to them that its cargo is not money but a new lethal and highly experimental street drug: the Crystal Dream. Now the bank wants it back and they are unstoppable. Is everything lost for Harley and Marlboro, the two well-meaning but amateurish thieves? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

In his Instagram post, Mickey Rourke paid a tribute to Don Johnson as a very good friend and somebody whom he looked up to for showing the director how to direct the film and also being a good actor and very handsome man whom he tried to imitate for his dressing sense in Miami Vice and failed. He was impressed by Don's acting and also his humility and was very happy for his friendship with Don Johnson and experience with him although he did not like the movie and the director. See more »

Goofs

When Harley makes his ride to California at the beginning of the movie the road signs show that he gets to Las Cruces then White Sands. Coming from Texas on US 70 he would have reached White Sands first. See more »

User Reviews

This was a typical late 80's early 90's flick..
14 October 2000 | by NYCfilmFanSee all my reviews

This was a typical late 80's early 90's action flick....but its memorable for the title alone...just like all of these action movies THE PLOT IS EXTRA! the dialogue is head and shoulders above anything Stalone or Segal ever said...and the bickering between Johnson and Rourke is genuinely funny.... Above Average Action; Very Good Dialogue (for an action movie)
