A fantastic modern take on medieval knights. A group of men and women bikers live the life of medieval knights to entertain the public, with the twist that it is all done on the back of motorbikes. Yes motorbikes, a nice twist and therfore ust as good for bikers or medieval fans. I first saw this film on VHS years ago, and have looked for it since on DVD without much hope. The film had hbeen withdrawn from the UK at least. Then to my supprise here it is on DVD as originally released and also Blue Ray at the same time. My prayers were answered and I did not have to try and have mine copied to preserve it from degradation on tape. Go on buy it and be amused and entertained.

The BluRay is great. A little blurry at the very beginning, which gave me a moment of worry, but it clears up and is nice and crisp throughout the rest of the movie.

Every year on or about my birthday I watch Knightriders. The gag is this: they're a wandering troupe of performers who put on jousts ... atop motorcycle. Except that what's an obvious put-on to the outside world, is (to varying degrees) real to the people living the life ... late in the movie, watching the knights fight, a girl says: "They're crazy." And a scummy agent, watching them fight, grins and says, "Yeah ... but that's what makes them sellable."

There's a brilliant bit midway through where King William (played by the best actor of his generation, Ed Harris), sitting by the fire at the side of the road along with his lawyer, with Merlin, and a roustabout named Bagman, talks about his Code: "It's tough to live by the Code. I mean it's real hard to live for something you believe in. People try it and they get tired of it, like they get tired of their diets, or exercise, or their marriage or their kids or their job or themselves, or they get tired of their God ... you can keep the money you make off this sick world, lawyer, I don't want any part of it. Anybody wants to live more for themselves doesn't belong with us. Let 'em go out and buy some pimpy psychiatrist paperback says it's OK, don't ask me to say it's OK, it's not OK!"

And Bagman responds. He's just spent the night in jail having his ass whipped by a Bad Cop ... he tells a story about waking up in a jail in Alabama after having his ass kicked years back, and just wanting to die, trying to cut his wrists with a bed spring ... but now: "Well, last night, I got my ass kicked, and I came up laughing.

This isn't a biker movie - the bikes are horses with engines, guys, so if you're looking for a biker movie, like the last reviewer, you'll be sorely disappointed. The cover looks like they're trying to sell a flick to an audience which won't enjoy it.

This is a film which takes dissatisfaction with modern life, pits it against authority, beats it bloody, wrings the tears out of it, makes it stand up again and ultimately turns it into something tragically beautiful. I can't think of a better way to spend my time.

Absolutely wonderful film, I am an enormous fan of Romero and his dead films have been playing in my dreams since I was a child.
I was stupidly reluctant to finally give this none horror film a watch, I very much regret not watching it sooner.
The film is a true work of genius and does seems to be very directly linked to Romero’s love and feelings about art and creativity.
I am in no way worthy to pass any sort of judgement on anything creative as I do not create myself, however I do recommend if you are thinking of buying this film you will be making a very good choice, the Arrow release is fantastic as ever.

Although much better known for his "Dead" trilogy and its spurious offspring, or for the revisionist vampire classic "Martin", George A Romero made his most mainstream film to date with "Knightriders". So it's curious that it's also one of his least known works. The story follows a mixed bag of social outcasts and misfits who put on shows involving Medieval jousting on motorcycles. Ruled over by a fake King Arthur and his bride, things take a turn for the worst when life begins to imitate legend, and the old King Arthur is challenged by brash newcomer Morgan. It's a gerat story, and the performances are genuinely a joy to watch. Ed Harris is unforgettable as the old King, and the film's ending elevates it to true cult status. On one level, it's about people who find happiness and family outside of society's constaints - and in that way it's a perfect companion piece to Romero's "Dead" films. But it's also a funny, energetic romp with an emotionally fulfilling ending to rival the majority of Hollywood blockbusters -- even if the budget was miniscule by today's standards.

First saw this when it featured on Alex Cox's peerless "Moviedrome" showcase on BBC2... the same place I saw countless excellent movies like "Repo Man" "They Live!" "Sid and Nancy" "Assault on Precinct 13" "Jabberwocky" and a whole bunch of others. All of them "cult" films from the wrong side of the tracks - beautiful, flawed monsters with low budgets and genre intentions.

This captures an American subculture - The Rennaissance Fayre - also captured in Michael Crichton's "Westworld." But more than that it is a commentary on the nature of "selling out" - then besetting the remnants of the counter culture, and the need to live authentically. It is an existentialist biker movie about an ertsatz Camelot with a genuine core - wonderfully performed by Ed Harris. See also "Walker".
