Run, Angel, Run is a typical B-movie (with B standing for Biker). It was made in 1969 and shot in 13 days, and it shows. It's one of William Smith's 273 movies, and one of the first movies that he has a leading role. The movie is a bit disjointed, specially in the beginning. If you have read the plot on advance, you'll be lost.
Nudity: A Bit
The movie was filmed in the 70's style, with several windows with parts of the movie in it. The end, like many of these kind of movies, is sudden and abrupt.
Plot: Angel, a member of a tough motorcycle gang, gets on offer from a major news magazine. In exchange for giving the magazine a big scoop by exposing the inner workings of his gang, the magazine will pay him $10,000. Angel takes the offer, although it means he and his girlfriend must now go on the run from bikers looking for revenge. Along the way, they hide out with a sheep farmer, earning their keep by taking care of the farm and building a new life together.
Quotes: "I ain't got no people, I got me". ... "You think you got to ride a chopper to be a tough guy."
Verdict: Despite being a B movie, with some bad acting, thin plot, 70's style filming, it's got a plot, and it's watchable. It's a movie for biker movie buffs, not for great movie lovers.
