Lots of shooting and stuff blowing up.

 

MY RATING.........."PRETTY GOOD"


COMMENT:

The budget for this film is probably larger than all the other biker flicks put together. Big talent and big money work wonders. The director Simon Wincer also did (Quigley Down Under and won an Emmy for Lonesome Dove.) No wonder this film is good, a real hollywood feature, not a B movie. Mickey Rourke really rides, saw him at bike week a couple of years ago.
