Smith plays Lincoln `Link' Thomas, leader of a small motorcycle gang known as the Devils Advocates, who have been hired by the American army to ride into Cambodia to rescue a captured CIA operative named Chet Davis (played by the director himself), something the army couldn't do because officially, there was no war in the region. Link's crew is made up of some real characters, including Speed (Cornelius), Limpy (Koslo), and two, recent veterans of Vietnam conflict named Duke (Roarke) and Dirty Denny (Savage).Read more ›
Saw this in 1971 or thereabouts in the UK on a double bill with Hammer Lust for a Vampire - Ingrid Pitt. Almost fell off the balcony!

Tarantino. But you are repeatedly shown innocent civilians being killed,
so it is not entirely escapist entertainment. And of course, when the

I'm usually a fan of this genre. Seems like they were trying to be campy, but it didn't work. Quit watching after about 20 minutes.Published 1 month ago by jst1man
