Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Every now and then something happens that thrust custom motorcycling, and its associated lifestyle blinking into the glare of the spotlight. Life magazine started the ball rolling in 1947 with their Hollister cover story, it was picked up by The Wild One in ’53, and then Easy Rider in 1969. There has been a myriad selection of others with lurid titles and plotlines since, the majority has been commercially, and shamelessly exploiting the genre, or the fears of an impressionable public, with few breaking the surface and establishing a fan base.

Choppertown, the independently produced film by One World Studios, is up there with the giants as a potentially life-changing classic that will find a broad audience, not least among men, and could re-establish a grass-roots motorcycle culture. Strangely compulsive viewing, it is a frank, intimate and disarming look at the relationships of a group of exclusively male riders – the Sinners of the title – centered around the story of one member, Kutty Noteboom, building his first ground-up bike with the help of fellow Sinner, Rico, and his workshop. ~from American V-twin Magazine, July 2006

Review

"KICK-ASS! An inspirational reflection on today’s true chopper heroes." -- Sean Sweeney, The Horse Backstreet Choppers Magazine, Oct. 2005

"Quite simply the best film ever made about custom motorcycles" -- Blue, BackStreet Heroes Magazine, U.K., Oct 2005

...an excellent look at motorcycle culture andthe only one to tackle the relationships between a group of friends..." -- Jonathan Leigh, icravedvd.com, Oct. 2005

Choppertown is tough, gritty and honest, just like the people it portrays." -- David Edwards, Editor in Chief, CycleWorld, Aug. 2005

Choppertown is up there with the giants as a potentially life-changing classic. -- American V-twin Magazine, July, 2006

Feeling bloated from the over-produced, fatty film frostings slathered over [Hollywood films]? Thentake a spin with the boys from "Choppertown." --KJ Doughton, FilmThreat.com, Jan. 2006

5.0 out of 5 stars Brotherhood January 30, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Really enjoyed this inside look into the Sinners bike/car culture. These guys seem really tight and the camaraderie is fun to watch. The entire process of building a bike from the ground up on the cheap with mostly used parts and free labor is fascinating. The great soundtrack really compliments the movie too. The scenes with the guys just talking and even getting a hair cut are really the highlight of this documentary because you really start to understand the meaning of brotherhood. The one thing that surprised me is that most of the riding scenes are on the interstate, which I personally try to avoid if at all possible. I highly recommend this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars choppertown. July 9, 2011
By bobx
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
id read about this movie a couple of times. always thought it would be something i was interested in as im into hot rod cars and motorcycles and all that stuff. i read about on some blog or website the other night and somehow, im not even sure how, ended up on amazons video section. heck, i didnt even know amazon had a video section. i typed in choppertown and sure enough, there it was. i think it was $2.99 or something. what the heck...i ordered it. couple minutes later, and there i am watching choppertown. very cool.

the movie itself was really cool. its kind a day in the life or couple days in the life of a car / motorcycle club: the sinners. theres some cool bikes and hot rods in it, and its just cool seeing these guys shops, cars and a peek into their lives.

the video playback was good. it wasnt perfect, there was a little 'glitch' that locked up the playback for about 2 min. or so in the middle of the movie, but that wasnt that big of a deal. i think for the couple bucks it cost i had it for 2 or 3 days also, so if i wanted to i couldve watched it again.

all in all, the movie was very good as was the amazon video playback. theres another choppertown movie im going to get next, and i wont hesitate to watch it or anything else that looks good on amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brotherhood April 27, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My hat is off to the Choppertown people. This documentary is incredible. I watch it probably twice a month without hesitation and even more when its raining and I cant go ride. The video follows around the The Sinners MC, who are the epitome of biker cool. You get to watch them interact, ride, and build some of the coolest hand made motorcycles you've ever seen. You also get to see the enigmatic Jason Jessee and all his lunatic splendor as he rides and works with his Sinners brothers. Which is always a plus. In short this video really captures the essence and the very definition of "biker brotherhood". If you are thinking about buying this dvd, dont think...pull the trigger. You wont regret it.

Also, for those of you who dont get it.....you never will.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just about bikes May 24, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is a great documentary about everyday people that love to build bikes and hang out with their friends.
Quite a few famous people too including Cole Foster (salinas) and Jason Jessee (pro skater, pro madman).
Good fab stuff aswell. Cole and thomas relocating the gas filler on the tank is very interesting.
Just a good movie about normal guys just doing what they love.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save the $20. Don't buy it. August 18, 2012
Format:DVD
Slow moving, not that interesting.

Very fragmented in the storyline, and characters. Has no flow.
Seems like random shots and scenes, to fill an hour or so of tape.

Take the $20 and go to a local bike night.

Not worth the money to buy this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice change of pace!! June 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was a nice change of pace from all the "Pop" motorcycle tv shows. No amazing over the top theme bikes here.No nikes that are so ridiculous they aren't motorcycles anymore. Just down and dirty bikes , built by the hands of the guys who are going to ride them. This is what the motorcyle culture is really about to me.Riding what you can scrounge up and build yourself. No payments to make every month for a shiny new bike like every other guy has. These guys truly own there bikes. I enjoyed the movie very much. Don't expect the usual pace of a Hollywood movie. It's much more laid back and slow paced. It's like you were invited to hang out with these guys in the garage as they build this bike. Get a six pack and watch it.Will you be able to build one yourself after you watch it? NO. This is not instructional, it's just cool. My wife actually watched the whole thing with me. I thought she would get bored and leave , but she didn't. (the only downside)

4.0 out of 5 stars Choppertown: The Sinners April 27, 2008
Format:DVD
It's a documentaire, not a movie! But the way The Sinners are shown was very interesting. A bunch of people who are no sissies, but not a 'gang' in the way people think about bikers. It was a pleasure to watch and I can recommend it!
