Product Description

Product Description

Three London motorcycle couriers Fred (Gary Stretch), Tyg (Geoff Bell) and Grouch (Phil Daniels) set off from the capital in search of an elusive hippy and his cannabis farm in the Welsh mountains. Originally intended as a nice weekend in the country, Fred has now found himself making a promise to his old friend the Chairman that whatever situations arise he will not return empty handed. Grouch has also made a promise that come Monday morning he ll be moving himself and his belongings into his new found love Lucinda s flat, and finally making an attempt at the world of serious relationships. As for Tyg, no such pact. This is a man who s never been further than the outskirts of London, and as far as he s concerned an industrial unit near Heathrow Airport is pretty much the back of beyond. No, Tyg s out to explore; to broaden his horizons; to lose any ignorance and soak up the hospitality of another nation. But, what are those wild beast noises coming from the woods and why are there two gangs of bikers in the area about to settle an old score? Throw in a seven foot, masked, lovesick Russian wrestler and things could really get out of hand. That said, it may also have something to do with the wild mushrooms they had for breakfast. It s a three and a half hour journey from London to the Welsh mountains, but for Fred, Tyg and Grouch it s just about to turn into the trip of a lifetime.

Well the last bloke reviewing this film has obviously got a personal vendetta on someone because me and my friends gave it a spin on the off chance one dreary wednesday afternoon and laughed out loud all the way through, the acting was great, the story was great, its a heap load of fun, perfect to liven up a dull night sat at home with the wife!!

I love this film, although I have seen a fair few reviews putting it down. Maybe we move in different circles, as I found the characters to have a lot of credibility - I have bumped into a Grouch (Phil Daniels) once or twice in my little lifetime, honest! Mind you, that side box was over-the-top enough to make me chuckle. Grouch stole this film, in my opinion. Just want to pick him up and cuddle him, he's such a softy sweetheart, naïve in all the right places. Fred (Gary Stretch, phwah!) is on the point of an epiphany, realising how important his daughter is to him. Fred needs to choose between what he wants and what he thinks he wants. Tyg (Geoff Bell) is an almost sobering influence on the trio. His character seems shadowed by his mates, but he needs to be there as a foundation for the trio. I'm sure a lot of people have met a Mole (sorry, don't have the actor's name). I know one in particular I'd love to pull such a stunt on, but can't mention him publicly - he's quite well known in my world and it might put ideas into the wrong (or right?) people's heads. When grouch read the paper report in Mrs Welsh Lady's shop, I chuckled!
My main concern was what our real Wessex lads think of seeing themselves portrayed as neatly combed Power Rangers, unorganised and generally dippy. Next time I bump into one, maybe I'll be tanked up enough to ask (then run!).
I hear MAG were a bit dubious about this film at first, but these characters do exist, though they seem to be becoming few and far between. Watching this film makes me realise what a duller world it will be when the likes are gone. Guess we'll have to give up the ghost to a nine-to-five, second-mortgage existence.
I'd like to says a great big THANKYOU to Jon Ivay.

This is a small budget britflick and I wasn't sure how I would enjoy it when my husband took me to see it. I needn't have worried, it was absoloutly hysterical, it was well written with a typical British sense of humour. The guy who reviewed it earlier on must have been watching it in his sleep as everyone who was in the cinema with us was roaring with laughter. I have only seen a few other films that has had the audience laughing out loud so much. I am now buying the DVD as I have been dying to see it again.

This is a Brit comedy/ Biker movie..heck these guys get into some comical messes... I have been a biker lass for 27 years and seen loads of biker movies. I cant think of many that really cut the mustard really... they seem to just end up delivering the "that's so not me cringe factor, shame I liked the bike." I dunno there is just something doesn't get to translate (as with a few movies I have seen from across that there pond )once you stick an actor on a ride with a pony tail + stick on tattoos and intend it to be serious.... um....its....anything on the other channel?
However change the mode and the location and these gloriously British chaotic and somewhat eccentric characters in " Free bird ," managed to resonate a gripping , hilarious "Three Stooges, " type approach to a wind in ya hair plot ...For me they dug up some fond old memories of bikers and rallies past.... I found myself smiling and laughing and feeling very reminiscent about some of the great characters I have met on two wheels over the years.. and yes sure we camp in fields from time to time and get pleasantly wrecked , all in the name of the motorcycle!
I am not sure particularly if you have not lived life as lets say an 'old school biker' and been to a few rallies for instance, if you will be able to fully appreciate the whole fun factor of the story... It seems a few other reviews have taken the serious route and shown just that .. However that's not the case here. So don't Bogart that DVD pass it over to me... roll on Summer and the rally season. I'm leaning the sofa round the bends, polishing me bike until the snow pushes off, and laughing my rocker box cover off to" Free bird."

Not quite understanding why some of the previous reviews are so bad. Then I understood.

THIS FILM IS MARMITE - you will either love it or hate it.

I love it - the humour is just right and it doesn't take itself too seriously.

Watch this movie, like marmite, you will never know until you try.

The big cinema companies don't go for this type of movie, preferring the blockbuster productions with mega effects & a star packed cast. More fool them because this has the makings of a film that will grow & grow in popularity.

It's another (in a long line of) Britflick which successfully blends good acting (Phil Daniels looks as if he were born to the role!), great script which moves along nicely, a sound plot, fab soundtrack & scenery which we all too often forget about (must get to Hay On Wye more often!).

Make no mistake, this is a "must see" & it tips a nod to other movies such as Zulu, Easy Rider & even Braveheart - I suppose you'll have to watch it to see what I mean.

I don't want to spoil the film for future viewers, but the fact that the 3 central characters play bikers stoned out of their minds for most of the film certainly strikes a chord with me!

Enjoy & celebrate the fact that we still make excellent, quirky films like this.
