Product Description

Quentin Tarantino’s Hell Ride delivers on its promise to be a “blood and sex-soaked tale of motorcycle revenge and retribution”. A modern day take on the iconic 1960’s biker movies sees DTV veterns Michael Madson, Larry Bishop, David Carradine and the one and only Dennis “Easy Rider” Hoper embroiled in a war with rival gang member Vinnie Jones (complete with an outstanding American accent) over the the death of a fellow gang member.

From Amazon.co.uk

Actor Larry Bishop, who made his name in the '60s as the star of biker pictures like The Savage Seven revives the genre with Hell Ride, a rough and raunchy action-drama produced by indie director and cult film aficionado Quentin Tarantino. Bishop, who wrote, produced and directed the film, is also top-billed as Pistolero, chief of the outlaw Victors, who cruise the sun-baked Southwest to avenge a fallen mama. Their target is Billy Wings (Vinnie Jones), head man for the Six-Six-Sixes, and Michael Madsen, David Carradine and Dennis Hopper (himself no stranger to biker flicks) are along to make sure that the job is completed. As pure exploitation, Hell Ride delivers the goods: the cast overacts with relish, and the on-screen excitement is divided equally between chopper action, fistfights and shootouts and plentiful female nudity, all set to a soundtrack of new and vintage fuzztone rock. However, those expecting the complexity and sheer cheek of Tarantino's own features may find the picture a little too retro-minded for their own tastes, and Bishop's pulpy dialogue is more overcooked than Tarantino at his most self-indulgent. Still, those craving old-school cycle movie satisfaction are likely to find that action with Hell Ride. -- Paul Gaita

I loved Hell Ride. It certainly seems to be a film that divides opinion, and I can understand why. It has a story that doesn't make any sense the first time you see it, and when you watch it again (and again, and again) to try to join the pieces up, you come to the conclusion that a lot of it doesn't actually join up at all. Given that Tarantino was an executive producer, and that Robert Rodriguez was also clearly an influence (he also does some of the music), that shouldn't come as a surprise. Add that to the deliberately crappy, nonsensical dialogue and jokey posturing of Larry Bishop as the main character and Vinny Jones as one of the two bad guys, and you have a recipe for deep hate on the part of some people.

But it's the kind of recipe that is just as likely to appeal to another kind of audience, and I suppose I fall into that camp, because I've already watched it four times in the last couple of weeks, and will probably watch it again before too long.

I'll give it my best shot to try to explain the storyline. On 4 July 1976 a girl called Kisum who is involved with some members of a bike gang called The Victors has her throat slashed and is set on fire by members of a rival gang, The Six Six Sixers. It turns out that she had been involved in drugs dealing with the Sixers, but had been skimming off the profits, which is why she was killed. Her son is the only person to witness what happened, but he promptly disappears. However, some time before she dies, she tells Johnny "Pistolero" Pistolle, the leader of the Victors, that she has an amount of "treasure" stashed, and that if anything happens to her, then he should make sure that it is passed to her son.

We now skip to 2008.

Imagine Sons of Anarchy being made into a spaghetti western by a B movie director on a low budget. I imagine they all had a lot of fun riding bikes around in the desert when they were filming. The story is daft but then again this is a film you can't take seriously. It's just a bit of fun for late night after a few beers.

Think a shorter, snappier Easy Rider, with a dash of Spaghetti Western thrown in, accompanied by a terrific soundtrack (gotta love that 60's reverb guitar sound). Director (and lead actor) Larry Bishop's friend and mentor Quentin Tarantino has clearly had a big influence here! There's plenty of sexy women and even sexier bikes and we even get to see the late great Dennis Hopper and David Carradine in one of their final screen appearances. What is there not to like? OK well Vinnie Jones' accent is slightly suspect, but sod it; Hell Ride is one hugely entertaining movie. In fact it's probably my guiltiest movie pleasure since Deathstalker 2. Blu-ray image is pin-sharp and 5.1 sound is awesome. Loads of extras thrown in too. You don't have to be a biker or peyote toker to enjoy this (but perhaps it helps). Trust me, this is great fun!

There is nothing worse than the smug, self-satisfied, know-all who reports praise for something regarded as terrible under the guise of being the only person that 'gets it'. However, Hell Ride is not one such film, despite what others here have been saying. What it does require, though, is a little bit of signposting so that it becomes a little more clear as to what the film is showing (and showing so well).
Some have said they wanted a film about the glamour and brotherhood of patch gang membership. Hell Ride is not about this. Go watch Sons of Anarchy instead. (No really, go watch it, its the best show on TV). Some wanted an outpouring of the 'romance of the open road'. Go watch Easy Rider. For all the good points of Hopper and Fonda's icon, Easy Rider is, however, very dull. Amazing film, but rarely entertaining. Some have criticised Hell Ride for being a mash of cliches, but here is where they have {cringe} missed the point.

Hell Ride is very cliched; but this is a device of the story, not the foundation of the story. The story itself is fairly basic. Drugs deal goes bad between two biker gangs (Victors and 666ers). Girlfriend of Victor's leader is killed. 666ers depart and Victors slowly crumble. Head Victor looks for his girlfriend's child - as she left him some sort of "treasure". Fast forward 30 odd years, 666ers get wind of the "Treasure" and set about claiming the region as their own.
The heads of either side (Bishop, Jones) quickly decend into outlandish cliches. Not becuase a cliche character is all that is available, but because it is the only way the characters know how to keep their grip on events.

Format: DVD
a pastiche/tribute/ripoff/reimagining or whatever of the late 60s biker exploitation movies of Roger Corman and his ilk, 'Hell Ride' is an enjoyable enough hour and a half of bikes, bloodletting and bootyshaking spoilt by the fact that it's far too in thrall to the work of the executive producer, Quentin Tarantino. Every single Taratino trope of the last 15 years is apparent: The non-linear storytelling, the references to 60s B-movies, Michael Madsen, the cool soundtrack of obscure rock tunes, the supporting roles played by David Carradine and Dennis Hopper - you name it, it's here. Director/Writer/Lead Larry Bishop also carries on the Tarantino tradition of playing unsuitable roles in his own movies, here playing the charismatic leader of a motorcycle gang despite looking like someone who works in a comic book store. As I said, I liked it, but I'm a sucker for this sort of thing. Objectively, it's rubbish. Oh, and Vinnie Jones is terrible even by his own low standards.
