THE LAST CHAPTER THE COMPLETE SERIES - The road to power has no rules. - It's The Sopranos on chrome-plated choppers in this bloody saga of a ruthless biker gang's fight to dominate their vicious outlaw world. Michael Ironside (The Perfect Storm, Highlander) stars in the landmark miniseries that kept international audiences riveted with its in-your-face portrayal of ambitious criminals battling for wealth and power. For the Triple Sixers, Canada's largest motorcycle gang, the sound of breaking bones is as familiar as the roar of their choppers - and Bob Durelle (Ironside) is ready to cement their influence with a bold (and dangerous) scheme. Get ready as a bare-knuckled turf war explodes among the rival gangs, sucking them all into a choking black haze of money, betrayal and blood.

The Last Chapter isn't so much about Bikers as it is about power; deals made and broken, promises not kept, and lies to family and friends. Canada's largest Biker gang, the Triple Sixers, wants a conduit to Ontario. Bob Durelle (Michael Ironside) wants to be that conduit, with 10 new Triple Six chapters of his own, while best friend Ross Desbiens (Roy Dupuis) wants no part of the Sixers. Bob and Ross make a secret deal to divide and conquer, but as Bob grows more and more powerful, can he hold up his end of the deal? Does he still want to?

This series is not about dudes on bikes. It digs so much deeper into the souls of the gang leaders, exposing us to their families, their friends, their loyalties, and their trust. Marini Orsini gives an amazing performance in the role of Bob's wife, who can't believe what's happening before her very eyes. Also outstanding is Michel Forget as Guenette, the police force's Biker "expert," who actually understands the Biker's mindset as he tries desperately to keep the peace, even after "his services are no longer required."

In the Last Chapter Two, loyalty and trust are a thing of the past. Bikers are double- and triple-dealing, and it's a little difficult to keep the players straight as they change allegiances back and forth and back again. Bob learns it isn't always good to be da king, as take-over pressures mount from all sides.

Yes, the Bikers do ride bikes in this series. But this is also the story of how they live, and of how they die.

There are extras on every disk, but I would advise watching the entire series before watching the extras, particularly the "Deleted Scenes" and the "Last Chapter Files." They need to be seen, but they can spoil the story if you haven't watched the entire film.

I discovered this item while browsing for biker stuff. The description said "Sopranos on Harleys" so I invested. This was a miniseries that aired in Canada, and was not shown in the US. I didn't get the Sopranos feel from it, and there truthfully weren't enough riding scenes for my taste, but it was still passable in other ways. I believe this must have been inspired by real events between biker clubs in Canada, I won't name them, but you can find the headlines. They must have had some advisors detailing the way things work inside a club. For instance, they were using chalkboards and talking with their mouths covered to avoid surveillence. A small part of this is in french with subtitles, but it was a Canadian production.

The story is of a small club that patches over (joins by changing their name and colors) to one of the big clubs to consolidate drug deals. There is dissention in the ranks and a few of the little guys refuse to join. Things quickly become unfriendly and the brotherhood erodes with well placed car bombs and drive by shootings. Women will probably root for the pretty boy (Dupuis) but like the real deal, there are no good guys. Michael Ironside excels in showing the slide from the top to deep paranoia. But its the guys in the background that keep it interesting.

This is both parts 1 and 2 and lasts about 9 hours. It is pretty entertaining and also informative, if you know what you're looking at.

I had a very poor quality VHS home made copy of The Last Chapter that I bought in the late 90's and it was very hard to watch. It was taped by a Canadian off the television . It was just recently released in the US on DVD and I ordered it right away ! It is a story of a large motorcycle club that is taking in smaller clubs to expand. The new leader is not really a biker but a yuppie who takes up golf and drives an expensive sports car. He is a killer and sits on top of a large drug business . This show sucks you in , I actually like it better than Sons of Anarchy . It is like the Sopranos on Wheels and is much more realistic than some other biker shows . I give it three thumbs up !

You don't have to be particularly interested in bikers to enjoy this mini-series. The plot is complex, with well-developed central characters. The script is top-notch and the cast is uniformly excellent. It's a tragedy that starts playing out its inevitable outcome from the very first episode. Greed, the lust for power, and revenge all play a part in moving its main characters, played by Michael Ironside and Roy Dupuis, to their bitter destinies.

This was either a series or mini-series for CBC and is a dramatization of the so-called "biker wars" between the HA's and (apparently) every other club in Canada.

The rip-off of the clubs is obvious, right down the "Triple-Sixer's" red & white colors and the "Los Matadores'" red and gold. The similarities are so blatant that the Matadores don't sport an M/C patch. If you watch closely, you'll see that their patch reads, MG - motorcycle gang, just like the Bandido's did at one point in the 70's.

This series is hard-core and makes the Sons of Anarchy look like a bunch of boy scouts. There is little sympathetic in any of the characters, especially Michael Ironsides who plays the main protagonist of the series, Bob Durelle. Durelle is obviously based on the life of Walter Stadnick.

If you've any interest in the history or culture of the biker phenomenon, this series should definitely be part of your collection.
