Editorial Reviews

A headstrong loner (Lou Diamond Phillips) heads into a sleepy western town on his chopper and terrorizes the outpost's residents. One member of the town (Sean Patrick Flannery) stands up to the bully biker and a showdown of good versus evil takes place on streets of the very western town the two are fighting over. This HBO feature film combines the western and the biker picture in this tongue-in-cheek action romp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good. February 25, 2004
By Dean
I saw parts of this movie on HBO while flipping between channels looking for something worthwhile to watch. I thought this made for HBO movie was far from what I was looking for. After seeing parts of it probably half a dozen times and being drawn in, I finally sat down and watched it from beginning to end.

This movie has a straightforward simple plot. At a glance it looks like Hollywood stock and the average back cover synopsis at the movie store wouldn't lead you to believe different. But, this film is of higher quality. The writing is good, even witty. The acting is good. The action is a vehicle to the plot, not center stage. It is a light, benevolent, and heroic movie, with action as its backdrop.

Unfortunately I haven't seen anything else written or directed by Ken Sanzel worth recommending.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too Bad for a B movie May 16, 2006
I saw most of this on TV last Sunday night (1:00am Monday morning). That time slot is dubious at best, often it's junk but occasionally redeems itself.

For a B movie i actually liked this. Yes the story is very cliched, but making the "hero" an "actor" (e.g., "i'm not a hero but i play one on TV") added just enough of a quirk to take it out of the totally mundane (plus the girl he was trying to save had broken up with him). It isn't too pretentious, and there was something about the characters that was likeable enough that i cared what happened.

Robert Forster did an excellent job as the hero's "mentor" and the bikers weren't too retarded, especially Hank Dillon who did a good job as well. Also there's the usual dufus town sheriff who tries to save the town by being a total coward.

This is not a movie you'd want to pay to see in a theater, but as a cheap rental or on TV it's not a complete waste. Maybe on the same level as a Steven Seagal, not as good as a Jackie Chan, but much better than some of the lower level of the same type (though maybe not worth the time i just spent typing this). But then i'm always a sucker to see the good guys win in the end, even if i know what's going to happen. Plus i didn't want to go to sleep and have to wake up for work on Monday morning.

(P.S. i loved the beat that played at the end, and the credits song that followed, which was Streets of Laredo played by either Headstones or Randy Kiss(?); i've found Headstones to download but not this song, would love to find it.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Lone Hero March 31, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I view this movie as a low budget Biker movie which held my interest and was consistant as to my expectations of Lou Diamond Phillips who performed excellent. Supporting actors did a fine job as well. The location where it was filmed reminded me of "Ghost Town" in Maggie Valley North Carolina.

This film, common to most biker films, plot was actually done in true form
Lot's of action, explosions, stunts & a little western action as well. Kept my interest to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars a nice surprise September 7, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Lone hero is one of those movies that proves you don't need a big budget to make a enjoyable movie. Lou diamond phillips is great as the leader of the iron bandits. He plays the bad guy very well and has some great lines. And sean patrick flanery is great as the reluctant hero. The movie never gets bogged down either moving at a pretty consistent pace with plenty of action along the way all leading to the eventual shoot out between the iron bandits and townspeople. Lone hero is a great movie to pop in when you don't want to think to hard or be amazed by multi million dollar effects. To me it has everything a good movie needs memorable heroes and villians, good writing with some memorable lines and a decent amount of action delivered at a steady pace.

4.0 out of 5 stars There are better but, it's pretty good! January 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'll agree with the previous writer, it's pretty cool seeing Lou Diamond Phillips (LDP) play a "bad-guy." The action is alright and there is a cool lookin' bike in the movie. Though most of the Outlaw Club that LDP is riding with are on old Jap' bikes. It's a decent movie but it's short (under 90 minutes). Good in some ways, since the "towns people" seem to be extras that were given speaking roles?!

(Free advice; Take it for what it worth. I really like "Beyond the Law" with Charlie Sheen. LOTS of bikes, babes and booze!)

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wild One crossed with 3:10 To Yuma December 2, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Standard story of a biker gang taking over a town, the story starts with bikers robbing a bar and injuring the bartender. The bikers tell everyone in the bar that if any one tells who committed the crime, the gang will take revenge on them and their families. - Some one did not listen; you know the rest of the story.

Lone hero is an entertaining, low-budget variant of "High Noon", a modern day western featuring bikers

If you are looking for a meaningful cinematic experience don't bother you will be disappointed, if you're looking for an entertaining shoot 'em up, this is for you.

To bad drive ins are a thing of the past, seeing Lou Diamond Phillips portraying a villain with a sense of humor on a huge screen in an out door setting would have been a real treat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wanabe Bikers November 4, 2008
The acting was good, the story was alright and it was interesting to see Lou Diamond Philips play a bad guy. For some reason Hollywood seems to think that the only way to make a guy seem tough is to have them say the "F" word & "G D" over and over again. Almost all the bikes were Hondas, most were Honda Magnas and Shadows. The Harley at the end of the movie did not seem to be in the rest of the movie and there was one HD Sportster, with a long front end, but if there were any other HD's I missed them. Boy, these were some big tough bikers on their 750 Honda's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a low budget movie
Lone Hero - Lou Diamond Philips is a pretty good "bad guy" in this movie. Plot is a little weak, but fun to watch anyway.
