MY RATING..........."VERY DIFFERENT"


COMMENT:

This film is chock full of bazaar neurotic characters. Most definitely not the typical biker movie fare. I suspect that has a lot to do with Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break) who brings us that female prospective again. I liked this film, with a couple of exceptions..... One of the bikers is real light in the loafers, not certain the would fly in the 50's, but again they did just get out of prison (yuck!) and it took these bikers all day to change a primary chain...........
