This 1991 biker movie has as main actor Erik Estrada, from the TV series CHiPS. It's a really cheesy movie, with no original plot to speak off. The script, if there was one, was probably written on the spot, and the filming done sequentially. In other words, big gaps. Erik Estrada is a real actor, no matter what you may think of him in CHiPS. He's the redeeming feature of the movie. He plays a good bad guy.
The start of the movie is pretty confusing, and the end was obviously a case of "hey, I'm out of money, let's wrap this up". The story is really drawn out, with too much detail filmed at times (the whole song of a band playing in a bar). There are lots of inconsistencies thanks to the quick script writing. The actual story is about 20 minutes, fitted into 90 minutes.
Plot: Johnny (Erik Estrada) is a member of a vicious biker gang. His gang are made to believe that he is a police snitch. The gang goes after him and kills his wife and child instead. Johnny goes on a rampage, taking out the whole gang.
The biker gang riding their Harley motorcycle choppers, the "Slavers" gang, is a gang of middle aged and old guys. As Johnny says himself "Half of them can't ride"...
Quote "Stay in the wind Johnny, in the wind"
On question I had: Why do all the main female characters look alike ??
Verdict: It's mildly amusing, since you can't always have blockbusters. It's a movie that'll play while you're doing something else.
