Hell Ride


By Joe MacLeod | Posted 8/13/2008

Heavily sun-tanned star/director Larry Bishop, as Pistolero--rebelling against whatever you got--takes us on a dusty, bloody run through the low-budget biker-exploitation flicks of the late '60s/early '70s in this ego-driven tale of revenge, beer, and tits. A handful of Hollywood tough guys young and old (Dennis Hopper, Michael Madsen, Vinne Jones, Eric Balfour) take turns punching, stabbing, kicking, shooting, and insulting each other while chewing on the turgid beat poetry-style dialogue interrupted only by excessive and gratuitous female nudity, which compels us to contemplate drinking beer and taking a ride on this "R"-rated ("for strong violence, sexual content including graphic nudity and dialogue, language and drug use") chopper all day.
