Editorial Reviews

The stars of Starship Troopers are back in action! Mike (Casper Van Dien) decides to hit the road on his refurbished classic motorcycle along with best buddy Alex (Patrick Muldoon), but their trek takes a surprising turn when they become involved in a plan involving political blackmail, corruption, and dirty money. Carrying evidence that could get them killed at any minute, the boys are chased on the open road but turn their skills to their own advantage. William Forsythe (Raising Arizona) and Theresa Russell (Wild Things) also star in this gun-blazing, rip-roaring adventure from the director of Every Which Way But Loose you’ll never forget!

This movie falls within my top two worst movies I've ever seen. Don't get me wrong, I definitely like the guilty pleasure of an occasional "B" movie. As long as I'm entertained, I'm not a stickler for award-winning camera work or directing. However, this is a couple hours of my life I won't get back.

This movie goes absolutely nowhere. The plot (if you can call it that) is choppy and doesn't make sense in places. There are a couple of things I'm going to say here that might be considered spoilers, but I can't imagine anyone is going to purchase this movie after the reviews here anyway.

The gorgeous biker babe on the cover . . . has nothing to do with the movie. There isn't anyone who looks like that in the movie, nor is there anyone who dresses like that in the movie. There are several scenes which *really* heavily hint that it is a sequel to "Easy Rider" (and draws a LOT of parallels to it), but of course without enough to endanger a lawsuit or complaint. His father was even killed on a bike that looks suspiciously like the "Easy Rider" bike Peter Fonda rode (after hooking up with his mom briefly), which is completely wrecked and still in his mom's garage. He decides to use the frame from his bike to bring it back to life while pointedly admiring the antique engine for a while . . . which doesn't even end up in the "restored" bike.

There is a scene where he needs to replace a bunch of money stolen from him (meant for the grandson of an old veteran), so he throws an impromptu biker concert to raise money.

I'm going to start things off on an uncharacteristic note. I'll talk about the actual movie "Born to Ride" in a bit, but I find it necessary to address the inherent misrepresentation of the DVD packaging first. For good or bad, this B-movie is what it is--but one thing it is not is a hardcore biker epic. The cover art on the DVD is designed to evoke a completely different movie. On the cover, there's a busty biker babe holding a shotgun with two nasty looking characters in the background. On the back, there is a team of bikers equipped with fire arms--one is even shooting while driving. While colorful and hard edged, these images do not represent ANYTHING even resembling the content of the film. It is not about renegade bikers and there are no armed and dangerous riders. The central characters just happen to be a part of the biker community--but the movie really isn't about that. To further distort the truth of the movie, its tag line is "Anarchy Is Their Middle Name" (clearly an effort to draw parallels to the much more authentic feeling TV show "Sons of Anarchy"). But once again, the characters are law abiding and rather respectful. Anarchy? Huh?

If you watch this, and I don't recommend it, you'll see exactly what I mean. The lead characters are played by Casper Van Dien as a sensitive biker with daddy issues and Patrick Muldoon in full surfer dude persona. These aren't rough and tumble types at all. The film has several plot threads, the most significant involves a corrupt politician. He is involved in some vaguely nefarious dealings with bad guy William Forsythe. Want more explanation than that? You won't get it in this sketchy screenplay. When two low level hoods try to blackmail the congressman, they end up on the wrong side of this very bad man.

First of all, the cover on this dvd has nothing to do with the story, so beware of that. However, bikers still may find something to enjoy, because that tends to be the focus of the plot. I found it an enjoyable 90 minutes, but it could have been a lot better. Best part is subplot of two hit men chasing Casper Van Dien across the southwest, including their encounters with truckers and a Native American jewelry salesman. Both are clever moments.
The main plot, involving a corrupt government official out to cover his tracks, starts well but falls flat by the end of the movie. I did enjoy the scenery.

I went to the showing and met the writer. I actually liked the movie and so did my fellow bikers. I found some humor in the movie and a good balance of action and a decent plot.

It is a fun movie in a complex and crappy world in which we live. I know the writer and his associates put ten hard years in making the movie a reality. It is more than a movie, it is an accomplishment of one man's dream to put a story into a film and make it a reality.
