Not your usual biker movie, since the crazy motorcycle riding gang is a bunch of young kids riding 2 stroke Yamaha dirt bikes, but apparently the plot is based on a true event, though I'd say a lot of artistic liberties were taken. The lessons learned from this movie is that it's better to stay in the office and work late...

This 92 minute long made-for-TV movie was released in 2004, and is a bit slow starting, and a bit slow moving, followed by spurts of fast action. Nevertheless, it's interesting since I guess there are pockets of really weird people out there, specially in the big desert. But the movie lacks some facts, since it's based on true events. If it really is the case, it would be nice to know a bit more.

During the first half of the movie, there's little motorcycle action, but that gets remedied in the second half.

Quotes
: "Everyone is someone's bitch."

Plot
: Fed up with their mundane, ordinary lives, four wannabe thrill-seekers get more than they bargained for when they attend a wild rave in the California desert. Josh and his pals are up for some sex, drugs and rock and roll...not necessarily in that order. But these burning sands, it turns out, are home to some of the deadliest creatures known to man The Scorpions, a local biker gang led by sadistic, machete-wielding Dom. Soon, without warning, what began as a spirited road trip devolves into an agonizing battle for survival. Gorgeous Genevieve Cortese also stars in this masterpiece of mayhem about weekend warriors who are forced to become the real deal...or die!

Verdict
: Not bad, bit slow at times, but interesting. But again, bikers are the bad dudes. Have a look at the video below.
