flash-review #10 : Hell Ride

Wow, this movie kinda failed. Maybe it was because my expectation were too high- I mean, just look at that : Tarantino produced, starring Vinnie Jones, David Carradine and Michael Madsen, among others - but man, is this movie a blatant exemple of style over substance. The story can be summed up in one sentence, and the movie spends more time showing tits than actually moving the story - thin story, that is - forward. Okay, I get it, its an hommage to biker flicks and all, but it could've had a compelling story. Instead, its just badass. At least, the movie succeeds at that, it's pretty fucking badass. But, it stops there. Tits, bikes and guns. Okay, enough.

At least the actors were good. Its always a treat to see Michael Madsen being badass. But instead, do yourself a favor and see Reservoir Dogs.

It's messy, it tries too hard, and finally, falls short. Sad really.
