Talk about cheap, trashy, biker exploitation movies from the 70's. This is a movie that should be a case study for the movie schools:

Bad picture, bad sound, either it's a bad copy, or it was filmed by an amateur with a 8mm camera, bad plot, no acting, no directing ... a real biker movie.

But there are a lot of motorcycles, however you can't even see what kind of a motorcycle brands they are; choppers and dirt bikes. It's so dark, that you can't see what's happening. The movie director, Russ Mayberry, is a TV episodes director, who obviously tried his hand on a feature movie, failed, and has gone back to TV.

The plot is wafer-thin if indeed they started out with a plot. It looks more like they made it up on the go while smoking some heavy stuff. Funny, one little pistol shoots down a helicopter... that's some magic bullet. There are only two characters with a name, the rest are not addressed by name.

The Jesus Trip scene

Plot
: Waco, leader of a group of bikers is mistakenly accused of stealing cocaine from the sadistic border patrol. His only escape is to take Anna, the beautiful, young novice as hostage. Their only desire was freedom, the Mob got them both.

Quotes
: "I have always admired missionaries. They go to Africa, Asia and save people.    -  Why don't you stay home and save me".

Verdict
: It's difficult to say how the movie was, since the picture quality was so bad and dark, you could only hear some scratchy sound. But all-in-all, it's a really bad movie, a typical trashy biker exploitation movie from the 70's.
