Many people are bashing this movie as being a "tribute" to Tarantino, or damn it in comparison to Easy Rider. Both points of contention couldn't be farther from the truth. First, this movie pays tribute to classic biker movies such as "hells angels on wheels" "The Glory Stompers," and "The Wild Angels." I enjoy all these movies for what they are, cheaply made, mostly poorly acted, but with plenty of sex, violence, and motorcycles to go around. Hellride is a very faithful tribute to this cannon of movies. Bad acting? Trippy party scenes? Gratuitous nudity? Violence? Hipster soundtrack? All are there. Like all these movies, the bikes themselves are the most artfull, well constructed features of the films.
Now, as for comparisons to Easy Rider, it must be stated that the 1969 classic was NOT A BIKER MOVIE. The choppers are only the vesels that propel the protagonists to there destiny. It is about trying to be individuals, but being damned to sell out in the end. It is about the duality of the American individual.
In the end, what may condemn Hell Ride, is the same thing that condemned the Grindhouse feature. Very few people under the age of 50 recognize what these movies are paying homage too, and i am probably one of the few. As a 27 year old, these movies remind me of my childhood watching 70's car chase and chopper movies with my father, a 1970's greaser now forced to settle into fatherhood.
Go watch Peter Fonda in "the wild angels" followed by "Hell Ride" and you'll realize that they came from the same drug filled vein.

When I saw the "red band" trailer for Larry Bishop's HELL RIDE I knew it was going to be a film worth checking out.

Violence? It had it. Nudity? Oh yeah. Had they thrown in a little drug use it would have been the perfect mix. (hint: they did)

A lot of folks may remember Larry Bishop as the sleazy owner of the nudie bar Bud worked at in Kill Bill 2. He chewed up the scenery in the 5 mins or so he was on camera. After doing a little googling, I found out he was the son of Joey Bishop and the star of a hand full of 1970s biker flicks.

Since Tarantino is a "huge fan" of everything and everyone we've never heard of- it goes without saying that he had seen all of Bishop's films and invited him in for that cameo.

He also told Bishop that it was his duty to write, direct and star in the 'Ultimate Biker Movie'.

Not necessarily the existential road movie that EASY RIDER was, but a throwback to the sleazy grindhouse biker flicks of years past.

Did he?

Oh yeah. The casting choices were amazing. Bishop himself, Michael Madsen, Vinnie Jones, Dennis Hopper and David Carradine and the ever lovely Laura Cayouette all fill their roles perfectly. Out of context the dialogue would be cheesey. But you put Madsen on a chopper in a tuxedo and it makes perfect sense.

The film is violent with liberal amounts of nudity. Don't watch it with the kids around. Don't watch it expecting a documentary on outlaw bikers- but watch it!

Hell ride brought me back to the 60's motorcycle movies again, in fact the person that wrote it was in those 60's films. Larry Bishop. The more I watched it the more I liked it.
Makes me want to see more!! This is for B movie fans.

It's gritty, it's rude, it's dirty, it's wild, they ride the motorcycles. I use to watch these types of movies when I was young, minus the nudity, and they were great. If you expect a high dollar like production, don't waste your money.

Wow!! Another great film to go with your Quentin collection.....this time by LarryBishop. This is a must for any Tarantino / Rodriguez fan. This movie is action-packed and filmed in true 'GrindHouse' fashion with an all star cast that are truly at their top performances of character. I would buy this no matter what the cost, this is truly a gem. Oh yeah.....this DVD arrived on time and was very well packaged, yet another bonus!

This has a couple of moments worth watching. I watched it because a "real" biker told me it was how a biker's life, as the last outlaws of the U.S.A., is. I found out a interesting perspective into his viewpoint.
One big problem is that only Tarentino can pull off his type of dialog. Otherwise (like here) it is VERY TEDIOUS.

Director and star Larry Bishop is son of legendary "Rat Pack" comedian and comedy writer Joey Bishop. The key to HELL RIDE is the writing. The actors played it straight, but it must have been tough for them not to break-out laughing at the witty repartee. Larry Bishop in the leading role of Pistolero, President of the Victors MC, is so much fun to watch. Nothing makes him lose his cool, not the enemy 666 MC or the seductive ladies. He truly is leader of the pack: Eddie Zero (Dennis Hopper), The Gent (Michael Madsen), Comanche (Eric Balfour) and Nada (Leonor Varela). With enough Bikes, Beer and Booty, there is a chance for happiness, but first a score must be settled and Pistolero is just the man to do it: "That's why I'm President."

Rebellion never looked better! Quentin Tarantino, the producer of films such as Death Proof, and director Larry Bishop helped make this fast paced, meaner than sin movie full of bikers, HOT biker women, and beer galore! Micheal Madsen(Kill Bill), Eric Balfour(24), and the legendary Dennis Hopper from the all time greatest biker film ever, Easy Rider. They play the parts of violent bikers in a gang out for revenge for the murder of one of their members. Vinnie Jones(The Condemned) plays the role of the gang leader who is as crazy as a Wolverine! This film is a brutal guilty pleasure full of extreme violence and very, very sexy girls. This movie is rated R for extreme violence, sexual innuendo, lots of nudity, drugs, and cussing.
